The Western was America’s bedrock mythology – and greatest movie genre – for the first 70 years of film history. But, during a tumultuous period in the late 1960s and early 1970s, “revisionist” Westerns such as The Wild Bunch and Little Big Man took up a fiercely critical argument with the past.  In the disillusioned age of the counterculture and Vietnam, you could no longer distinguish heroes from villains by the color of their hats.



Movie critic Robert Horton will led a discussion asking how
movies reflect the history and culture of their times.
