Luke Short - Movies and their sources



Many of Luke Short's books were made into movies. Most of them are good. All movies I know about which were made from his books and magazines are listed below.

Books on left, movie on right. Below the book cover, you will find the listing of the original magazine appearance, if any.

Links (where available, not all these movies are out on DVD yet) will take you to the movie's DVD page on Amazon.

  1. Luke Short has always been one my favorite western authors. The WESTERN STORY cover from 1939 is the best cover shown above, an impressive image.
