Howdy, Cromrades! This week, we're heading down the dusty trail on the Stage to Lordsburg! This influential story by Ernest Haycox was first published by The Saturday Evening Post in 1937, and the 1939 adaptation was a cornerstone in the development of the western film genre! We were excited to talk about the archetypes found within this story.
Also, be sure to check out this blog post by Jeff Arnold for more information about the story!
