Western(Seibugeki) is19st centuryThe second half of theThe United States of America OfWestern pioneer eraAt that timeFrontierMainly calledWestern United StatesSet in an undeveloped landmovies(Including TV movies)Novel.Western(Western) translation.


1860 eraLatter half·Civil WarAfterWestern United StatesThe plot of confronting outlaws and indigenous people with a white man with a pioneer spirit as the main character matches the pioneer spirit that white people pioneered the frontier.[1]It gained great popularity and was formed as a genre of cinema with the rise of American cinema in the first half of the 20th century.

Therefore, "a movie of the pioneering era of the western United States in the latter half of the 19th century" is a western drama, which is characterized by "a young pioneer spirit full of emerging spirits unfolding with spectacular action." It can be said that the western drama is almost gone now, and it is said that it is a genre that cannot be established in the present America where the pioneer spirit is lost.[2].

The definition of Western drama set in the western United States in the latter half of the 19th century (especially from the 1860s to the 1890s) is not always strict.Gary CooperThe starring "Unconquered People" is set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the east before the Declaration of Independence.John Forddirected byHenry Fondastarring"Mohawk drumIs set in New York during the Revolutionary War,Cecil B. Demilldirected by"Northwest Mounted Police』Is in the 1880s, but the stage is Canada, and both are stories that open up undeveloped land and are regarded as Western plays.Also"Shoot for tomorrow!''North to Alaska''Wild bunchIs a story from the beginning of the 20th century, and "Shoot for tomorrow!"North to AlaskaIs Alaska, "Wild bunchAnd othersSeven in the wildernessIs set in Mexico, but it is considered to be a Western genre.

And finally, during World War I, "CimarronIs in the Western drama, but the same writer wrote "GiantsIs a 20th-century story set in Texas and is not considered a Western drama.Also set in Southern Atlanta, the story of the Civil War, "Gone with the wind] Is not included in the Western genre.

Western history

Westerns have gone through history with movies.And Western drama is a unique genre that Hollywood has built up, and it can be said that it was born because of the United States, which has a history of pioneering the West.The story of a pioneer who has lived steadily in the harsh nature while struggling with many difficulties is the pride of Americans, including the frontier spirit and dreams, and the American dream itself.[3].


The idea of ​​setting the western part has existed since the very beginning of film history, and in 1898, the first western drama was made in Edison's kinetoscope activity photography. In 1895, the Lumiere brothers created the first cinematograph (screen projection method), and eventuallySilent movieAppeared in 1903, the first full-scale western movieEdwin S. Porterdirected by"Big train robberyWas created.It's a simple story in which the vigilantes chase and defeat the robbers who attacked the train, but the audience is excited by the edited screen of moving images such as running around on the train, murder and blasting the safe, chasing and shooting. Eventually, the Western drama was actively produced with action for sale.This "Great Train Robbery" was an epoch-making work that arranged the basic skeleton of the subsequent Western movies, and had a great influence on the history of the movie.[4]..However, the film was shot in eastern New Jersey, near Edison, and the western nature wasn't on screen.At that time, shooting was only possible in the eastern part, the story was in the western part, and all shooting was done in the eastern part. In the 1910s, Edison's patent dispute arose, and the trust forced the filmmakers who did not have Edison's patents to be eliminated (later Edison was defeated in court) to avoid paying patent fees. Those who moved to the distant west found a good place to make a western drama on the outskirts of Los Angeles, California.With the abundant sun and the beautiful and magnificent scenery in the background, the filming of the western drama proceeded without any shortage of locations, and this became the center of film production.That was Hollywood.

Western star and director

The basis of these westerns is the existence of a strong and brave hero, and the actor who plays that hero has become a western star.Bronco Billy Anderson, who appeared in the early days[Note 2]Is "Bronco Billy"[Note 3]He starred in the series and appeared in a serial film produced in one volume (up to 1 minutes) each week for seven years.

After Bronco Billy, he was a Broadway stage actor.William S. HartAppeared in a dashing appearance of a two-handed pistol and fascinated many spectators with a style like "Knight of the West".Hart was completely different from the Western actors up until then, and while showing the spirit of chivalry in the foreground, he was often forced into a lonely and tragic position, which strongly touched the audience.[5] He was involved not only as an actor but also as a producer and director, and silent works such as "Shishi Shishi" (1925) were screened in Japan, leaving a big mark on Western films.

And at about the same timeHarry careyAppeared and became popular in the "Cheyenne Harry" series from 1917 to 1919.Harry careyIn later years, he played a supporting role and appeared in "Daytime Battle" and "Akakawa" after the war, but his name is remembered as a silent western star.Most of this "Cheyenne Harry" series was produced and directed after he was called Jack Ford at the time.John FordHarry Carey had a close relationship with the Ford family, his son Harry Carey Jr. later became a valuable supporting player in the John Ford Westerns, and Harry Carey's wife was a later masterpiece of the Ford Westerns.

B-class westerns and television westerns

Second World WarUntil the end of the movie, Western movies were a solid and popular genre of American cinema. In the 1930s, the number of Western plays exceeded 100, 1935 in 150, and nearly 1950 in 140 after the war.[9] This increase in the number of productions is due to the fact that B-class movies were produced as an adjunct to the double-featured show that began in the 30s, and that many Western-class movies were produced as B-class works for about 50 to 70 minutes. Is.It was a simple and clear swashbuckler, with a clear story of good and evil and poetic justice. At that time, it was said that Western plays would definitely hit.During the period when it was made in such a large quantity that it was said to be a crude random production, the technology and possibilities of video expression were developed through trial and error, and the accumulation of capital due to the increase in sales of Western movies laid the foundation for the development of movies as an industry. However, it became a source of vitality for building a movie kingdom.[10]

From a B-class westernJohn WayneIs a growing starRandolph Scott,Joel McCreaOrAudie MurphyWas also called a B-class western star[Note 7]..Besides this, Charles Starlet[Note 8], Hoot Gibson, Buck Jones, Ken Maynard, Johnny Mac Brown andHopalong Cassidy"[Note 9]The famous William Boyd and the musical Western as a sub-genre of the B-class Western became popular before and after World War II, and Gene Autry and Roy Rogers are engraved in its history as singing cowboys.[11] Ray Enright, Joseph Kane, André De Toth, George Sherman, as directors of the B-class Westerns.Rudolph Maté,Budd Boetticher, Allan Dwan, Russell Rouse, etc. were active, and eventually some directors who took a big megaphone after the director of a B-class movie appeared.Directed by Ray EnrightRandolph ScottとJohn WayneとMarlene Dietrichstarring"Spoiler, "Western Judgment", "The Lawless Road" directed by Joseph Kane, "The Last Station Carriage", "Springfield Rifle" directed by André De Toth, "The Bounty Hunter", "The Bounty Hunter", George・ Sherman's "Battle Arrow" "Natural Non-resident",Rudolph MatéDirector's "Valley of Desire" "Three Rogues",Budd BoetticherDirectors such as "Ambush of the Plains" and "Duel Commando Fort", Allan Dwan's "Privately Penalized Woman" and "Catle Queen of Montana", and Russell Rouse's "Desperate Shot" and "Basque Death Corps".

And from the time when the B-class western drama declined, television western drama was actively produced, a star was born from television, and a director of a western drama movie was born.

And from the beginning of the 1960s, the popularity of Western drama declined.Almost at the same time, the western TV drama declined, and "Rawhide," which was a popular program in Japan at that time, was discontinued in the United States and appeared.ク リ ン ト · イ ー ス ト ウ ッ ドWent to ItalySergio Leonedirected by"Wilderness Bouncer(1964), at the same time that the macaroni western was noticed, he quickly won the title of Western star.ク リ ン ト · イ ー ス ト ウ ッ ドEventually, he became active in the era of the decline of Western drama.

The transformation of the western drama

The character image drawn by the western drama is basically the main characterWhiteAnd it ’s strong and correct.Moral discipline』Is the essence of the story, and come to cheer there (of the Army)cavalryThe corps is a "good role" and the indigenous people who face itイ ン デ ィ ア ンIs often referred to as a "villain".The battle between whites and Indians depicted in the play has many historical facts, but few mention the cause of the battle (land sovereignty).

However, in due course, repulsion and remorse for content that was different from historical facts (which is convenient for white people) became a strong motive for the decline of Western drama.After the war, the drama of poetic justice could not keep up with the diversifying changes in values ​​and ethics.[13].

1940 eraの半ば頃から、フロンティア精神を肯定してそこに主人公(ヒーロー)がいて無法者や先住民を倒す「西部劇」という一つの図式が崩れ始めた。1950年のDelmer Davesdirected by"Broken arrow』Is not a scheme that the indigenous people are others and threaten the white community, but from the side of the indigenous people, they portray them seeking peace rather than preferring fighting.It entered an era when the civil rights movement aimed at improving the status of black people became increasingly fierce at that time.human rightsAmid growing awarenessイ ン デ ィ ア ン,BlackThe way of drawing was criticized, and the reality that could not be mere poetic justice emerged, and it was forced to face the problems that the Western drama had abstracted up to that point.[14].

そしてもう一つの図式である勧善懲悪で、開拓者精神を肯定する強いヒーローがいて悪を倒すそれまでの図式も崩れていった。自分の名誉のためだけにインディアンを見下し、結果自身の連隊を壊滅させてしまう騎兵隊の中佐(『アパッチ砦』のHenry Fonda)、町の誰からも助けてもらえない保安官(『真昼の決闘』のGary Cooper), A man who is obsessed with revenge (of "Searcher"John Wayne), The farmer who kills people as a bounty hunter just to regain the farm (of "Naked Spur")James Stewart)が主人公の西部劇が40年代から50年代にかけ多数製作されて、それまでの映画にあった悪に立ち向かうヒーロー像がもはや存在せず、何が正しくて何が悪いか、明らかにしないままにただ主人公の人間らしさが主になって、そこではもはやヒーローが描きにくくなったのである[15].

At this time, there were many works in which the distinction between good and evil was ambiguous and complicated.Exciting and dynamic action, confrontation between heroes and villains, showing flashy gun judgment, etc., the atmosphere as a whole became heavy and dark even though there was a showcase.[16].Laor WalshDirector'sValley of death』" Tracking ",Anthony MannDirector'sNaked spur],King VidorDirector's "Daytime Battle",Henry kingDirector's "Handgun King" "Unreliable Group",John SturgessDirector's "Sixth Man", George Sherman's "Natural Absent",Delmer DavesDirector'sTied neck tree, Directed by Nicholas RayJohnny guitar],Edward DmitrickDirector'sWarlock』AndFred ZinnemanDirector'sMidday battleThe protagonist is not trusted by anyone, has trauma in his heart, wants to die, and is forced into an isolated and unsupported battle.Kawamoto says that American society, which experienced an unprecedented war after the end of World War II, "shows that it has become difficult to make a simple and clear western drama in which strong and correct heroes play an important role." Saburo says[17].

And it was also in the dark air of "Red Scare" that hit Hollywood at that time.Anthony Mann,Fred ZinnemanIt is said that the world depicted by the artist brought about the transformation of Western drama.[18].

This is1960 eraWhen you enterCivil rights movementAt the same time, it led to the decline of Western drama.1960ToJohn F.

Under these circumstances, Western plays could not stand on the simple dualism of good and bad, and in the early 1950s, the number of productions was about 100 per year, but in the latter half of the 1970s, a quarter of a century later, the number of productions dropped sharply to just one digit. Go[19].

With the rise of New Cinema, directed by George Roy HillPaul NewmanとRobert RedfordStarring "Shoot for tomorrow!A masterpiece like "" was born, and also directed by Arthur Penn "Little giant"And director Ralph Nelson"Soldier BlueWas released in 1970, and "Soldier BlueIs 1864Sand Creek MassacreBased on this, the genocide case was drawn from the standpoint of the indigenous people who were the victims, and it became a hot topic at that time.

Today, Western plays are produced, but few, and have not produced masterpieces that are on par with past works.This is because the scheme as a story cannot be made and the genre as a western drama has not been established.On the other hand, historical evidence, costume setting, and gun action are expressed with incomparable accuracy from past works, and entertaining action movies such as "Toomstone" are also made. ..

The macaroni western is produced with a free idea that ignores historical facts, selling action and cruel scenes, and the location is mainly taken in Spain and Durango in Mexico, which has a desolate desert area. Already in the 1960sHollywoodWas ending its history as a filming location and was known as the filming location for Ford's Westerns.ArizonaHowever, the cost of staying soared and the rental fee for horses also increased, and Durango in Mexico was selected as the location.

Western drama has been very popular in Japan since before the war, and a phenomenon called the gun boom was born after the war, especially around 1960, and Nikkatsu made a drama like the western drama, which is said to be a stateless movie at that time. Was not enough[Note 14]..However, in the field of historical drama, Akira Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" was remade in the United States to become John Sturges's "The Magnificent Seven", and "The Magnificent Seven" became "The Magnificent Seven" and entered the world of western drama.

Depiction of indigenous people in westerns

By the time Columbus reached the Americas, there were already indigenous peoples on the North American continent.When I arrived in North America, I misunderstood that I arrived in Indiaイ ン デ ィ ア ンIt is said that by the time the British created their first colony in the early 17th century, North America had a population of about 100 million and about 500 tribes.[22]..However, the battle with whites began around the time the western development progressed.The history of western settlement was also the history of indigenous persecution and slaughter.And in 1870, during the western reclamation era, the population dropped sharply to just 2.

In the early 20th century westerns,イ ン デ ィ ア ンWas treated as a hero, but when the Western drama moved to an action-centered entertainment film, the Indians said,FrontierIt became a villain that harmed, and was a symbol of wickedness and ferocity for white pioneers.

Westerns dictated the image of Indians.The Indians who appear in the play routinely wear flashy feathers on horses, swing their hatchets around, and attack with the voice of "Awawawawa" and battle cry.These are ridiculous except for straddling horses and putting on feathers.Their costumes were also conceived by the studio designers, and most of them are played by white people, and have no material value.

Also, in the Western drama, "Grand Chief and War chief who obey all Indian warriors under the command" appear, which was born from the white misunderstanding about Indian culture.Basically, the Indian societyCollaborative systemDemocracyIt is a society, and there is no such absolute power person.[23].. Both "Daishucho" and "War Chief" are completely fiction, and despite being characters in Western plays that do not actually exist, by being released worldwide, "酋長Is a tribal chiefIt has become more widespread in the perception of false Indians.

Wearing a feather decoration, which is a custom of the tribes of the plains, he speaks a single word of English with no expression ("Indian, Usotsukanai" is a typical example of this in Japanese dialogue)StereotypeAfter that, people all over the world heard the word "Indian" and it became the first image that came to mind.Radio and TV series "lone RangerThe hero's companion, "Tonto," is synonymous with "white-skinned Indians" among Indians.

In the 1950s, from reflection on how to draw Indians like this,Broken arrow"Apache" was produced, and in the 1960s, "Mohawk drum(1939), John Ford, who had drawn only Indians as a villain after drawing a typical Indian, began to draw the Cheyenne tragedy in "Cheyenne" (1964), and in 1970. Is "Soldier Blue』The scene where the cavalry massacre the Indians is depicted.

Directed and starred in "One-eyed Jack" in 1960Marlon BrandIs an Indian rights organization "American indian movement』(AIM), and has been counseling and exercising since the establishment of the group.1973To the movieGodfatherWhen he won the Academy Award, he had an "Indian woman" attend the award ceremony on behalf of him and read a message about how Indians were treated unreasonably in the Hollywood Western drama.[Note 20]..Film actor, AIM activist and spokespersonRussell MeansIn an interview about Hollywood movies, said:

We only have to have two different forms of what Hollywood wants from Indians in the film.We dress in leather during the summer.Or we saySkins"(2002) or"Smoke SignalsYou have to be a drunken socially ineligible person, like a movie like (1998).[24].

One Saturday afternoon in the 1940s, I went to see a movie with my brother Dace at the Esquire Movie Theater in Vallejo, California.Cowboys and Indians appear in the movie, and while the crowd is screaming, the march trumpet rings, the cavalry shoots, and the Indians are unavoidably killed.Dace didn't seem to be able to see it.He covered his face with his hands.We were like that when you were 8 or 9 years old.You are probably the upcoming movie ("Last of Mohican』) You would think that the Indians might win unlike that.Well then then we leave the cinema.

And this is a real story, after which our brothers back to back against Mexicans, Filipinos, Chinese and blacks, just as Indians fight whites in the movie. Had to fight in.All the kids in these neighborhoods tell us. "Hey Indians, I'll hit you with all my might!"[25].

A pistol that appears in a western drama

Western plays, often the subject of gunmen, range from those based on accurate evidence to those that have been modified from modern firearms to make them look like they are.FirearmAppeared as a prop.The most symbolic oneColt Single Action Army(SAA) Revolver, commonly known as "Peace Maker"[Note 21]AndColt M1851likeSingle actionRevolverHandgunIs. The SAA is Colt's masterpiece gun, with 1873 manufactured in 1940 years from 67 to 35.

With waist beltholsterIn single actionRotary handgunThe cowboy style that contained the movie was a classic of the western gunmen that appeared in the movie.Even in Japan, the popularity of single-action pistols such as the Colt 45 has risen with the growing popularity of Western drama, and many manufacturers have said that.Toy gunThe product was sold.

There are many variations of single-action pistols of this era, but especially in the Spaghetti Western, the leading role is a 5.5-inch metal cartridge case, the villain's boss is a long barrel such as 7.5 inches and large, and many others are 4.75 inches. In many cases, the type of gun was decided according to the role of the owner, such as a metal cartridge case type pistol or a percussion type revolver.

The leading star is required to be proficient in gun play such as unstoppable shooting and continuous shooting, and splendid spins.Gary CooperIsPlainsman』(1936)Cecil B. DemillAs a result of discussion withTwo-chome pistolI practiced hard shooting for two weeks and created a famous scene.

When the movie became color and eventually widened to a landscape screen, Red Rod Wing, who had been a returning soldier of the Korean War since the mid-1950s, became a leader in handling firearms and became a pistol technique for many stars. Was taught.Names such as Alva Ojara and Doyle Brooks have been handed down to this gun play instruction, but when the movie went from silent to talkie, it was still before its debut.John WayneThat was the one who taught gun play toWyatt EarpThere is a story that he was the person himself.

"Fanning" that shoots at high speed by pulling out the pistol with the trigger pulled and hitting the hammer with the other hand.[Note 22]The technique called "Wilderness Battle』In the name supporting playerWard bondIs the first technique that was shown.

Incidentally,John WayneThe gun play with the Colt 6-shot gun was actually skillful (showing a glimpse of it as a "searcher"), but it was too big (slightly thick waist) and did not suit, so on the advice of director John FordWinchesterIt is said that he used a gun (rifle) habitually.He was later told that no actor would look better with a rifle.

The Winchester gun was a rifle devised by Oliver Winchester, initially a six-barrel rifle, but in the same 6 when the SAA went on sale, a 1873-barrel "73 Winchester gun(M1873, commonly known as Winchester Gun 73)[Note 23]) Appeared, and it is said that this Winchester 73 was also manufactured in 1873 units during the 1932 years from 59 to 72 and spread widely in the western part of that time.However, it was unpopular with the US Army at that time, and Winchester guns were not used in military relations such as cavalry in the 19th century.Therefore, historically, when the cavalry used a rifle, a single-shot Springfield gun was used instead of a Winchester gun, and in 1876 the XNUMXth Cavalry under General Custer was wiped out by the Indians with the Little Bighorn. It is said that there is a "true theory" that the side is a series of Winchester guns and the cavalry side is using a single-shot Springfield gun.[26]..However, in Western movies, it is common to see cavalry shooting with Winchester guns.The gun used by Steve McQueen, who starred in the TV "Wanted Dead or Alive", is a shortened barrel of this Winchester gun, commonly known as Randall Custom.By the way, the Winchester gun used in movies and television is not the famous M1873 but the successor M1892.

These two guns, the "Single Action Army" and the "Winchester M1873," were later referred to as the "guns that conquered the West."[27].
