Summary One of the most important yet overlooked of Hollywood auteurs, Budd Boetticher was responsible for a number of classic films, including his famous ‘Ranown’ series of westerns starring Randolph Scott. With influential figures like Martin Scorsese and Clint Eastwood acknowledging Boetticher’s influence, and with growing academic interest in his work, Gary D. Rhodes and Robert Singer present a vital collection of essays on the director’s long career, from a range of international scholars. Looking at celebrated films like 'Buchanan Rides Alone' (1958) and 'Comanche Station' (1960), as well as at lesser-known works like 'Escape in the Fog' (1945) and 'Behind Locked Doors' (1948), this book also addresses Boetticher’s influential television work on the James Garner series 'Maverick', and Boetticher’s continuing aesthetic influence on contemporary TV classics like 'Breaking Bad'.
