I love Star Wars and I enjoy a good Western, so it’s no surprise to any of my friends and co-workers that I’ve been engrossed with The Mandalorian on Disney+.

The Little-Known History of the Wild West Is the Ultimate "Mandalorian" Easter Egg

I’ll go ahead and warn you now, there will be some spoilers ahead, so if you haven’t caught up at least through Episode 6 of The Mandalorian, you may want to come back to this after you have. If you’re all caught up or just don’t mind, let’s continue. The Mandalorian is basically a Western that happens to be set in a galaxy far, far away, but you don’t have to take my or show-creator Jon Favreau’s word for it.

Westerns and samurai films have a lot in common.

The Western and Samurai Influences of 'The Mandalorian'

For a start, both are significant to the mythology and pop culture of their respective countries, exaggerating the characters and settings they revolve around for the sake of great entertainment. In turn, you could argue that both genres have informed the way that people unrealistically imagine the Old West and Ancient Japan. Both genres also boast an abundance of movies that focus on lone-wolf characters roaming the lands. Cowboys carry guns and samurais wield swords, but their characteristics, motivations, and the situations they find themselves in are often similar. However, there are some notable distinctions between each genre (besides the obvious cultural ones).

Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian is Jon Favreau‘s attempt to marry Western and samurai archetypes in a space setting while still acknowledging the differences between them.

The Hitchcock and Truffaut Tapes

Recorded to audio tape, the content was eventually edited down into Truffaut’s famous book Hitchcock. Truffaut did not speak much English, so he hired Helen Scott of the French Film Office in New York to act as the translator for the sessions. The half hour sessions were subsequently broadcast on French radio and in 2006 Tom Sutpen started posting audio files on his blog ‘If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There’d Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats‘.

Le choix fut difficile, les votes ne se firent pas sans affrontements et âpres négociations. Le grand dilemne qui s'était posé lors de nos précédents tops (horreur et science-fiction), est revenu encore plus duremment ici : devait-on s'en tenir qu'à un seul film par réalisateur afin d'offrir un panel plus large ? Il a été impossible de le faire car, ici plus que dans tout autre genre, certains cinéastes ont réalisé des incontournables.
