This month RLJ entertainment releases the 8 episode factual docudrama of The American West. The series recently aired on Foxtel’s History Channel and now it’s available to own on DVD.
The American West will take you back to the violent world of cowboys, outlaws, gunslingers and Native Americans. Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, General Custer, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse; they are all household names and this series chronicles their personal and little-known stories. These men were the first to live and die for the American dream and their legends live on.
Robert Redford is the executive producer of the series and his knowledge and passion for the period is apparent throughout every episode.
The American West also features appearances from Ed Harris, James Caan, Kris Kristofferson, Mark Harmon, Tom Selleck, Burt Reynolds and Keifer Sutherland; all of whom have starred in great western movies immortalising these legends of the American West.
Thanks to RLJ Entertainment we were able to get a copy of the DVD to five of our Beauty and Lace Club members to review. I look forward to hearing what they think in the comments below.
