While cowboys were the heroes of many westerns, the heroines also played a vital role. In their TV and film portrayals, these actresses saved people, sang, sighed, shot, skulked and slung hash, and through it all they were expected to look ravishing. They were the ones who often tempered violence by bringing civility, romance, and their own brand of frontier spirit to the Wild West.

In this program, Arizona’s Official Western Film Historian Charlie LeSueur explores the onscreen careers and professional realities faced by the actresses who portrayed cowgirl sweethearts on TV and on the silver screen.
