TV Series/Mini Series Hats

from the last best west

Since the Dawn of Cinema the Western has been the greatest ongoing saga in film history. The first true motion picture was a western (naturally!) made by Thomas Edison’s Company in 1903, called The Great Train Robbery.

Most of us have a favorite western series we grew up watching on Saturday mornings. For many of the Baby Boomer Generation these would include hats from series like

Have Gun Will Travel :: The Rifleman :: Wanted Dead or Alive :: The Virginian :: Wild Wild West :: Hopalong Cassidy

And then there are the modern westerns, which have gathered quit a following. Shows like.

North and South :: Gods and Generals :: Lonesome Dove :: Purgatory :: Deadwood :: Broken Trail :: Justified :: Longmire

And any lover of the western would have to include Lonesome Dove as the finest western story yet told on film. It tells the compelling story of 2 old Texas Rangers that are tired of living in a tame Texas town, and long for the frontier of their youth.
