Westerns as a popular genre actually lasted for several decades. Some of the earliest films made were westerns, and their popularity lasted until the late '60s - early '70s, until Eastwood's spaghetti films wrung the last few dollars out of it.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
