The Mandalorian and the Real Wild West

January 2, 2020

The Mandalorian on Disney+ is built on a ton of classic Western movie tropes. Mando is frequently seen as the lone rider who comes to town, discovers a problem and solves it by being a superior gunslinger—like Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars. And that's what most of us think about when we imagine the "Wild West", but are those tropes even real? Was the old West as "wild" as we think? Find out in this first edition of Out of Frame Shorts.
