Westerns have had their heyday, but they remain popular. The greatest films from 1914, when ""The Squaw Man"", ""The Virginian"", ""Salomy Jane"", ""The Spoilers"", ""The Rose of the Rancho"" and ""Chip of the Flying U"" were the genre's best, through 2001, when ""American Outlaws"" and ""Texas Rangers"" were tops, are the subject of this work. For each year, the author names the outstanding western films in the following categories: picture, screenplay (original and adaptation), direction, cinematography, music, male and female leading roles, and male and female supporting roles. Also for each year, the author lists the westerns that received Academy Award nominations (and those that won), makes note of the births and deaths of notable actors, directors, producers, composers, cinematographers, authors and other such personalities, and describes the genre's significant achievements.
