DID YOU KNOW?

The Wild West only lasted for about 30 years? The era that is known as the Wild West, or the American Frontier, began after the Civil War in 1865 and ended around 1895. The west of the Mississippi River during the late 1800s had many untamed territories. It's known for its lawlessness that resulted in wild and rowdy behavior as people claim. It was, in fact, only normal colonial culture and behavior during those times. That didn't stop people from making grandiose stories about it. That sense of independence and complete disregard for any and all action. It's one of the things that resonates and fascinates people.

Hollywood glamorized the whole thing, even the term "cowboys" was not what it seemed. They were instead called cattlemen that did hard labor. They also didn't wear cowboy hats and only had 1 set of clothes until they tore. Western movies were a big hit regardless of the facts. We would rather believe the glamorized version instead of the truth and the was okay. It was all for the sake of good entertainment and that's never a bad thing. It also brought about films called "spaghetti westerns". These were Italian-made Western films and was quite popular in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, it's quite easy to watch these films online with services like Netflix. Western movies on Netflix range from the old, often-told tales to modern classics. If you've been a long-time fan or new to the Western, there is something to meet anyone's curiosity.

    "Spaghetti Westerns were familiar territory to me but I was still surprised by this movie. I didn't think that a Danish Western would be this good. The entire cast was spot on and delivered great performances. One of the great Western movies on Netflix to check out."
