In 1999, Boyd Magers and Michael Fitzgerald published WESTERNS WOMEN: INTERVIEWS WITH FIFTY LEADING LADIES OF MOVIE AND TELEVISION WESTERNS FROM THE 1930S TO THE 1960S, to acclaim and delight of the Westerns world. (“A must for fans…entertaining and an absorbing read”—WRANGLER’S ROOST;“excellent”—UNDER WESTERN SKIES; “recommended for any Western fan’s library”—NOSTALGIA WESTERNS“engaging…affectionate”—FILM REVIEW.)
Now Fitzgerald and Magers are back with a new roundup of interviews with leading ladies from B-westerns, A-westerns, and television. In this volume of fascinating and candid conversations, 51 actresses discuss the facts of life as lived on a western set—and why, despite harsh working conditions, low pay, and a host of other challenges, most of them would happily choose to live it again.
