The Western Movie Quiz Book
by Graeme Ross




Overview -
The Western Movie Quiz Book - Saddle up for 1250 questions and answers on the greatest movie genre of them all If you are a fan of Westerns, there are some things a man just can't ride around, and The Western Movie Quiz Book is well worth a mosey. The Western Movie Quiz Book is an affectionate tribute to a much loved and enduring cinematic art form. With 1250 questions ranging from the very easy to 'expert' covering 125 subjects, the book is a comprehensive history of the Western. All the classic Westerns from over a century of movie making, as well as more obscure 'oaters' are covered, and the icons of the genre - the great directors, stars and locations are an integral part of the book. Subjects include Spaghetti Westerns, Comedy Westerns, Catchphrases, Good Guys and Bad Guys, as well as chapters on Wayne, Eastwood, Fonda and many others who helped make the Western the most loved film genre of all. The recent critical and box office success of True Grit and Cowboys and Aliens has demonstrated that there is still an audience for the Western, and with Quentin Tarantino's entry into the Western canon Django Unchained, making the genre fashionable again, the timing of The Western Movie Quiz Book is perfect. With a foreword by Philip French, film critic of The Observer newspaper and author of Westerns: Aspects of a Movie Genre, a seminal history of the genre, The Western Movie Quiz Book will provide many hours of nostalgia, entertainment and escapism for quizmasters, movie buffs and anyone interested in the history of the Western movie. Happy Trails GRAEME ROSS was born in Greenock in the west of Scotland and has lived and worked in the area all his life. He served as a Firefighter in Greenock for thirty years and now works in the Scottish Football Museum at the home of Scottish football, Hampden Park. THE WESTERN MOVIE QUIZ BOOK is Graeme's sixth book. His other works include histories of his local football (Soccer) club, Morton, and a Frank Sinatra quiz book. Graeme has also contributed many articles to newspapers and magazines such as The Sunday Times, The Scotsman and Mojo. He is a life-long movie fan with a particular love of the Western, and in 2003, Film Review featured his article celebrating 100 years of the Western movie.
