Charles Starrett    
  CHARLES STARRETT, one of the founding members of the Screen Actors Guild, and an heir to the Starrett Tool Company, was known to many as the Durango Kid.  As the masked western hero of the silver screen, he appeared in 65 movies for Columbia Pictures.

In addition to the role with which he is most closely identified, Starrett appeared in 67 other western movies for Columbia, most of which were prior to his initial appearance as Durango.  He also appeared in films for several other studios early in his acting career.

  This lavishly illustrated book covers Charles Starrett in his role as the Durango Kid through a synopsis of each film and an assortment of memorabilia that is sure to please fans of this classic B-western series.  Included are more than 270 photographs from the films, copies of film scripts, cast, staff and personnel sheets, comic book covers, magazine articles, newspaper advertisements, and a "Durango" story from the first issue of "Screen Western."

  This book is for everyone who remembers spending Saturday mornings and afternoons in the movie palaces of yesteryear, those who are so young they never had the opportunity to enjoy the movie matinees, and those who want to know just what it was that captivated audiences before the days of computers and video games.
