The Cowboy (1954)
1h 9min · Documentary · 28 May 1954
A one-family documentary from Elmo Williams and his wife Lorraine. The former, who won an Academy Award for his editing of "High Noon", co-produced, directed, edited and photographed (probaly not the camera operator) it from a script by wife Lorraine Williams, who also co-wrote the three songs used. Filmed in part in all of the western states of the United States and using real cowboys, ranging in age from 'teens to their eighties, Williams examines every aspect of the jobs of the working cowboys across the years from the first ranching empires to the present day. No movie cowboys here, other than Tex Ritter as one of the narrators.
