This’ll be the third year we’ve done this, and while it’s a long, long way from being any kind of official competition, I couldn’t resist the chance to share Roy Rogers’ belt buckle — presented to him at the Madison Square Garden World Championship Rodeo in 1944. Between now and New Year’s Eve, send me your favorite DVD and Blu-ray releases for 2015 — I’ll do all the accounting and put together our Best Of 2015 list.
The only requirements: they have to have been released during the calendar year and have some relation to 50s Westerns. Since so many terrific movies have come out overseas this year, we’ll count non-U.S. releases.
One of the real joys of this blog, as I see it, is all the sharing and recommending that goes on. So while you’re at it, let me know what your favorite discoveries were for 2015. Doesn’t matter if it’s been on DVD for years, you saw it on GetTV last week or borrowed a bootleg from a friend — what 50s Westerns did you get acquainted with this year?
For both lists, drop your picks in the comments to this post or email fiftieswesterns AT gmail DOT com.
