About the books:

‘Head `Em Off At the Pass: Following a foreword by Western legend Hugh O’Brian, Harrison delves into nearly one hundred motion pictures of the genre. He does not state these are the greatest, merely why a person interested in Westerns should watch these particular films. In doing so, he goes over the synopsis and cast, adding an analysis and history of each movie, with anecdotes by legendary stuntman Jack N. Young whenever possible. Along the way, the reader meets Western stalwarts such as Gary Cooper, John Wayne, John Ford, Clint Eastwood and Sam Peckinpah, along with those who don’t get as much notice: Glenn Ford, Joel McCrea, William S. Hart, Harry Carey, Walter Huston, Burt Kennedy, George Marshall, and scores of others involved in bringing the Western to the screen. With more than four hundred photos, ‘Head `Em Off At the Pass!’ is a treat for movie fans.

Ready When You Are CB: While the epic film has been around for decades, J.M. Harrison points out there are countless facets to it, being more than spectacle, battles, Cecil B. DeMille, and Charlton Heston. He includes works by Samuel Bronston, Francis Ford Coppola, William Wyler, Alexander Korda, Sam Zimbalist, and starring Robert Duvall, Claudette Colbert, Montgomery Clift, Eva Marie Saint, Elizabeth Taylor, Peter O’Toole, Steve McQueen and many others. Along the way, Harrison delves into what it is that makes the epic special to film lovers everywhere, covering nearly one hundred of the genre. He lets the reader know why each one listed is a necessity for a movie lover to watch.

    My favorite epic western movie is The Magnificent Seven. Working at a movie store, I was craving new movies, I was already into old movies (born in 1982). A customer recommended this movie, I watched it, then immediately bought it. I loved how it was based on an older movie with samaurai’s, the soundtrack, and how Yul Brynner was tough! All the hard stars in it too! McQueen, Wallace, Bronson, etc. Tough movie, with a good story. Thank you.

    When I was growing up in the 60s my Mom took us to see The Ten Commandments at our local theater. Seeing my Sunday school stories come to life was awesome. Charlton Heston and Yul Bryner made quite and impression on me.

  3. One epic movie that has really stayed with me is “Bonnie and Clyde”. I was fairly young when I saw it and it seared itself into my memory. A bit traumatic for a youngster, but epic all the same!
