AFS Presents: History of Television // The TV West
November 30, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
USA, Digital, 100 min.
When Quentin Tarantino initially hit the interview circuit discussing his new film THE HATEFUL EIGHT, many were surprised to hear him acknowledge that the primary influence on the film’s narrative was not Hollywood or even Italian western films but rather the television westerns of the ‘50s and ‘60s. In fact, as the demand for big-screen westerns diminished, some top writing and acting talent came together to create a golden age of small-screen western. For this free installment of the History Of Television, we present some of the very best episodes of ‘50s and ‘60s western television and look forward to THE HATEFUL EIGHT.
