About the Author

Ted Holland lives in Cornelius, North Carolina.


Like newsreels, serials, and double features, B-Westerns (low-budget) are things of film's past. Their fans, while not legion, are exceptionally devoted. Holland provides entries on over 250 performers, divided into four categories: Heroes, Sidekicks, Cowgirls, and Bad Guys. Each entry includes a biographical sketch and a filmography cross-referenced to other entries. The writing is cliched but enthusiastic. There are some misspellings of non-Western names and the book sorely lacks a strong introduction to give the genre some definition and context, particularly for younger readers unfamiliar with Westerns except through films like Blazing Saddles. Thomas Wiener, formerly with ``American Film,'' Washington, D.C.

"a well illustrated reference source...highly recommended"--Choice; "the book well fulfills its promise to provide encyclopedic information"--ARBA; "an invaluable A-Z...superbly researched"--Film Review; "over 250 performers"--Library Journal.
