European Western Essential Library

This book is invaluable when researching the East German DEFA films.
It covers all the main actors and actresses along with many of the
character actors who appeared in these films, many of which were
westerns starring Gojko Mitic. It gives biographical information and a
DEFA filmography for each person covered. A handy index helps find
names you’re not familiar with or there spelling. A must for your library
shelf if you are at all interested in these East German films.
