    Documenting the West

    John Spencer, Director of Video Production and Content at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, who introduces the summer’s first series, has curated titles recently recognized by the Museum with prestigious Western Heritage Awards. These distinguished, thought-provoking documentaries reflect significant stories of the American West. Viewers will discover why the documentary genre of film is an integral part of cinematic history.

    Wyatt Earp (2010)

    Wyatt Earp is portrayed in countless movies and television shows, but these popular fictions belie the complexities and flaws of a man whose life is a lens on politics, justice, and economic opportunity on the American frontier. He was a caricature of the Western lawman, and after his death in 1929, distressed Americans transformed him into a folk hero: a central figure in how the West was won; a man who took control of his own destiny. 60 min, PG.
