Film Lovers Badge


Western films focus on the Wild West of America, telling stories set in the American West or sometimes Mexico.


The first Western was made in 1903 called 'The Great Train Robbery'. In the 1960s and 70s there was a revival of Westerns which were low budget films called ‘Spaghetti Westerns’.


Modern Westerns include films such as 'Brokeback Mountain' and the 'Wild Wild West' which is a science fiction western. One of the most famous Western actors is Clint Eastwood.
