Project Twenty productions of the 1950s and '60s created historical documentaries for prime time US TV. THE REAL WEST was the groundbreaking programme that first presented a true portrait of the historic West, debunking the glamour and contrived romanticism of network series and Hollywood films. In fact, Billy The Kid was a homicidal moron from the New York slums, Wyatt Earp never made it above assistant marshall and Wild Bill Hickok lived in the back of a bordello and invented his own legend. The viewer partakes in the conquest of the frontier by cattle ranchers, prospectors, railroad builders and farmers through stunning images of historic locations and mesmerizing close-ups of rugged faces. Narrated by Gary Cooper.
