This dictionary, which has just recently been published, outlines more than 1,200 films ranging from the first of the genre to the latest examples in its more than 350 pages. One of the most exciting genres of film history has been the western, although it has undergone quite a few transformations over the decades, it has been able to maintain its own characteristics but always with the possibility to be reinterpreted depending on the director, from John Ford to Raoul Walsh, passing by Howard Hawks, from Sam Peckinpah to Clint Eastwood, passing through Sergio Leone. Although it emerged in 1899, it would have its moment of splendor beginning in 1939, in which some of the most important films of the genre were released. From the Second World War, it would give way to its maturity and progressive idealization that will lead to the films of the 1960s, a decade in which the European response to the gender is also consolidated with the so-called Eurowestern, though for the majority its more familiar term "Spaghetti-Western". Summarizing: the western has gone from being the popular genre for excellence to become a delicatessen for film buffs, something that confirms complexity from a film field that is possibly offered the most important number of masterpieces in the cinema?
