Buffalo Bill And The Indians (Kino Lorber; $19.95)

Buffalo-Bill-and-the-Indians-by-Robert-AltmanRobert Altman’s “anti-Western” is a beautifully made, but overly cynical look at the legendary William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. A time capsule, this 1976 film reflects more on the era of Watergate than the Old West.

C. Courtney Joyner is a screenwriter and director with more than 25 produced movies to his credit. He is the author of The Westerners: Interviews with Actors, Directors and Writers.
