The old American West is a place that harbours many stories. Hollywood has shown a particular interest in this scenario and has given the audience some truly great films. Cowboys, gunslingers, Native Americans, outlaws — there is a lot of scope for concocting interesting stories and creating iconic characters. The texture, the music and the whole aura of these films are completely different, and when a Western film is on, you know it’ll surely be an adventurous ride full of action. With that said, here’s the list of really good western movies on Hulu that are available to stream right now:
