It is necessary to list the characteristic features of Western. Usually, the place of all actions is Wild West. Sometimes, the plot can be connected with the stories of the migration of ”whites” to the coast of the Pacific Ocean, deep into the continent. In such films, the very important role is played by shooters and cowboys, often fighting with Indian tribes. In early Western movies, the Aborigines were portrayed as dishonest villains. Somewhat later, many ”revisionist” films of the Western category gave the Indians a more benevolent role. Also, terrorizing small settlements, bandits and quests are an inseparable part of inspiring sources for directors.
”Girls” from cheerful houses, (especially the ”mothers” from brothels stand out), imperturbable sheriffs, fatal women (sometimes singers), independent hunters for rewards (some ”bounty hunters”), pure and innocent main characters, dashing cowboys, professional Western poker players, bloodthirsty Indians, antagonists, tribal chiefs, noble Indians, assistants, protagonists, as well as a gang of bloody bandits are typical enough characters of Western cinema. An important point in the films of this type is the pace and speed of action, for example, a quick shot from the hip. Moral evaluation is also an important aspect. Good competes with evil and usually the first triumphs. The happy end is the key to a successful Western. Perhaps it`s time to remind of the most famous actors of Western genre: Clinton Eastwood Jr., Marion Robert Morrison, Frank James Cooper, Yul Brynner, Karolis Bucinskis (Charles Dennis Buchinsky), Clarence Leroy Van Cleef. Jr., James Maitland Stewart, and Carlo Vicente Pedersoli.
