'Western movie wit & wisdom' is a compilation of quotations from western movies ranging from the 1920s to the films of the present. In addition to the regular films, it also includes silent films (via title cards), serials, miniseries, documentaries, and even a couple of cowboy cartoons. Here film characters give advice, words of wisdom, funny lines, or an occasional historical fact. Many of these quotations reflect our American culture and have applications for contemporary living. Although the quotations were uttered in a western setting, they are really about life itself.
