Today's Western Movie Poster

Once again a great poster.
How is it we see people spending 10 million for a movie that makes 1 million but we don't see anyone making the "B" westerns that always made a little money? They could probably be made today for 2 or 3 million and bring it 3 1/2 to 4 million. Isn't making a dollar better than losing a dollar and a half?

I've told this story before Dave, but when Ballantine quit publishing western paperbacks, I asked the editor why. She said that the powers that be knew that westerns were making money, but they weren't happy because the westerns weren't making enough money. That's probably Hollywood's attitude, too.
