instead of my seventies list, which nearly killed me, i am doing a similar deal for westerns (american and foreign), but one at a time, and including the following:
1- landscape images (or taverns)
2- actors
3- cinematography
4- other business

much indebted to reciprocal information exchange with the famed scottish librarian sir tarrl l. morley of edinburgh who currently teaches classes on the history of cinema (specifically the western) in berlin germany, focusing his attention on - light and abstraction, landscape, water (rain) and liminality as seen in the american western and author of the fine study of minimalism, light and abstraction in the films of anthony mann, john ford and robert bresson.
