The American West in Film and Television: Weird West

It wasn’t just outlaws that made the West wild. This program explores the cross-genre, supernatural tales that combined horror with classic westerns. These included “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula,” “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter,” “The Beast of Hollow Mountain,” and genuinely bizarre films like “The Valley of Gwangi” in which a cowboy seeks fame and fortune by capturing a Tyrannosaurus rex for a Mexican circus.

Join Arizona’s Official Western Film Historian Charlie LeSueur as he explores fiendish and downright weird Western films you’ve probably never heard of!
