      No lightweight composer, when you think he was responsible,
      for the music, in 2 of the 3 cavalry movies!, not to mention Stagecoach!

    • Re: Composers Of The Saddle- Richard Hageman

      Great idea, bringing this back to everybody's attention, Keith!

      I found some CDs that have quite a bit of Richard Hageman's material on them on Amazon. The link takes you to a list of Western-themed CDs. While you won't see Mr. Hageman's name visible in the titles, when you click on each one, you'll see it.
