Westerns like American Empire

Westerns like “American Empire” were presented as a window on our American Frontier in history; a glimpse of what the original pioneers endured while building the Nation “Out West”. In the days when personality Actors ruled, they were very successful entertainment for the whole family. By the term, “personality Actors”, like Richard Dix,

the public would see their favorite “Star” in any storyline. They would go to see Richard Dix in a movie and enjoy the adventure no matter what the story was about. Therefore, Dad was very careful in selecting the goals and objectives of a movie. He felt it his responsibility to maintain a high level of moral conduct. Very different from today’s Hollywood.
