How The West Was Written: Louis L’Amour Movie Weekend

Nobody brought America’s Wild West to life like Louis L’Amour. He penned over 100 novels, 250+ short stories, and sold more than 320 million copies of his thrilling “frontier books.” His ability to tell an action-packed tale about cowboys and Indians, ranchers and cattle rustlers, lawmen and outlaws, made his work perfect for the movies!

This month, we’re celebrating Louis L’Amour with three of his best Western tales-turned-into movies. These compelling stories feature men heading West; the fear and terror of living through Apache uprisings; and a brother’s fight to bring his rancher brother’s murderer to justice. Enjoy amazing star turns from John Wayne, Geraldine Page, Tom Selleck, Sam Elliott, Claude Akins, and others.

Grab the popcorn, settle in with someone special, and see great movies that show you all the trials and triumphs of the Wild West—Louis L’Amour style!
