Alcoholism in the Western Genre: The Portrayal of Alcohol and Alcoholism in the Western Genre.
Wedding, Danny
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v46 n2 p3-11 Win 2000
Examines the way alcohol use has been portrayed in films with particular emphasis on the western genre. Saloons, bar fights, and town drunks are all staple features of the genre, a genre that has contributed significantly to the prevailing image of masculinity. This paper argues that these images influence and shape contemporary attitudes about alcohol use and inebriation. (Author)
