New Westerns Column Posted at Classic Movie Hub

I'm happy to share the news that my latest Western Roundup column was posted today at Classic Movie Hub.

My new piece is on a trio of lesser-known Wyatt Earp films, FRONTIER MARSHAL (1939), TOMBSTONE: THE TOWN TOO TOUGH TO DIE (1942), and WICHITA (1955). The movies star Randolph Scott, Richard Dix, and Joel McCrea, respectively.

Please visit the Classic Movie Hub site to check it out!

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read and comment on my Western Roundup columns. I really enjoy writing them, and I'm delighted to know so many of you have enjoyed reading them!

What a great Christmas present from you to us, Laura! I'll be reading your new piece over Christmas (as the grandkids allow) and commenting as time permits. Earp was played by 3 of my absolute favourite western actors in these three films. So I look forward to 'diving in'.

I agree with Jerry about Wichita being a gem. Fine review, Laura of a picture that surprised me in every detail. Even the song was fine, and I have been in Wichita. It is, as Tex sings, a very nice town. A treasure. Bluray would be ideal.

Laura, another fine write-up. It stirs my memories of other Wyatt Earp/Doc Holliday loosely based movies. Keep up the good writing.

Thank you, Barrylane! Wichita is such a lovely movie -- wouldn't it be special on Blu-ray?

Thank you, Walter! There are so many interesting Earp and Earp-inspired films, it's a subgenre unto itself! These are definitely just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. :)

Best wishes,
