Charles Starrett    
  CHARLES STARRETT, a veteran of more than 165 motion pictures, rode tall in the saddle in 131 western movies from Columbia Pictures from 1935-1952, an unprecedented 17 years.  No other western star appeared for the same studio for as long, or starred in as many westerns as the Massachusetts native.

  The last 65 of the Starrett westerns saw him appear as the masked Durango Kid, who rode his white horse Raider across movie screens, righting wrongs initiated by those who operated outside the law.  Although Starrett is best remembered as Durango, the westerns in which he appeared prior to that role were no less action-packed, and were actually better scripted.

  This photo-filled book deals with the 66 earlier Starrett westerns, which spanned the period from 1935-1945.  A synopsis of each film is provided, a list of the major cast members, more than 400 photos, in addition to pressbook advertisement material and rare magazine articles.

  This book rekindles the excitement of those days when Charles Starrett rode his horse across "The Hollywood Range" and ended the evil intent of scores of villains.  Western movies once rules the screens of theaters across the country.  Relive those days in "Charles Starrett: Before Durango."
