The Lowest Budget Western Movie Ever Made

Determining the lowest budgeted western ever made night not be a very easy task. There were scores of low budget B Movie westerns produced in the 1930s and 1940s. Westerns had a large audience during the classic age of cinema. A significant segment of the audience were young children. Since kids did not need a huge budget or a big star to draw them to theaters, quite a number of low budget westerns were made. The western with the lowest budget is something that might be lost to history because budgetary records have most likely be lost or destroyed. That said, there is a western which just might be the lowest budgeted movie in the entire genre. That film would be The Terror of Tiny Town. This 1938 film featured an all-midget cast and was a hit on the matine circuit for young ones. More than likely, the money saved on this film was not only from reusing sets from other movies, but also from not paying the cast accordingly.

There may have been lower budgeted westerns made during the silent era. However, many films from this time period are lost along with the records of their production. In today’s world of home video, perhaps the all-time cheapest western is soon to be made. Still bored? Click to continue: Tila Tequila in a new low-budget film
