The Western Group

When the vault was established and some movie choices were made to include, an almost complete collection of Western movies was included by one of the designers. As the years and generations went by, a tradition arose of a once a week showing of Western movies and a hard core group of people (fans) gathered every week to watch these same movies, over and over again.

As time passed this group became ever more entrenched and what started as a tradition became a following and by some definitions, perhaps a “religion”. The movies depicted the old west which became a sort of idolized paradise inhabited by a pantheon of heroes that demonstrated their morality and sense of justice. These heroes, such as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Gary Cooper and others, became mythic figures to be idolized. The Western group tended to be something that was carried on by heredity from parents to children.

Most members of the vault eventually moved on to other things, but a hard core group continued the tradition over generations even naming their children based on the heroes.
