"Filming in the West of Zane Grey” by Ed Hulse is the definitive reference guide to all 113 feature films and serials adapted from Grey’s published yarns and stories, supplied directly to movie producers. No other book has covered Zane Grey motion pictures in this detail, and with many of the early films either lost or unavailable, this book is an invaluable reference source for casual fans and serious researchers alike. Many of the Zane Grey westerns were filmed in the Lone Pine area.
Best selling author Zane Grey wrote nearly 60 novels set in the American West, and a substantial number of them were adapted for the silver screen - some of them up to five times. With a total estimated audience of 250 million people, the former dentist and world-class fisherman entranced readers and viewers for decades with his highly romanticized tales of the frontier and the colorful pioneers who settled it. Some 111 feature-length films and two cliffhanger serials were adapted directly from Grey's stories, and Filming the West of Zane Grey covers each one in detail. Casts, credits, plots synopses, contemporaneous reviews, release dates, running times, alternate titles-just about everything you'd want or need to know about Zane Grey movies is here. And film historian Ed Hulse ties it all together with an extensive, analytical, bio-historical essay.
