About the Author

Richard M. Hurst holds four degrees in history and folklore and was a museum administrator for over forty years before retiring in 2002.


With a talent roster that included John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and Gene Autry, Republic Pictures Corporation was the leader among B movie studios of its era. In this accessible narrative, historian and folklorist Hurst charts the company's output from its founding in 1935 through its demise in the late 1950s and considers its impact on American culture. This revised edition of a work originally published in 1979 contains a new introduction and epilogue and features the addition of two chapters on serials. * Reference and Research Book News, August 2007 *

Hurst packs a lot into his 288 pages....essential reading... * The Big Reel, July/August 2007 *
