Budd Boetticher was a bullfighter, a bull talker, a pleasant madman and a talented journeyman who could, with the right material and passion, make a minor Western film classic as easily as he could kill a bull.
But of course, pain and passion mixed together naturally in both arenas.
This is a film-by-film look at his cinematic career, from his days as an assistant's assistant on the set of Hal Roach comedies to his last documentary some 45 years later.
This is the first book to examine each of his 34 films in detail, with interviews with those who worked with him providing extra spice and insight.
