Iconic Western Heroes

Many of us grew up with a romantic notion of the old west as we were bombarded with a seemingly endless supply of Western movies and Television shows. The movies released in the 40s, 50s and 60s on through till the mid 70s were peppered with Hollywood’s Western storytelling and the leading men of those Westerns were the heroes to many a young boy.

MovieZoot looks at four of these iconic actors who could very well be considered The Kings of the Westerns, including John Wayne in Red River; Randolph Scott in Rage at Dawn; Lee Van Cleef in God’s Gun; and even a very young Roy Rogers in 1940’s The Carson City Kid.
