Synopsis:

The project looks at Buffalo Bill, the Western legend who travelled all over Europe with his infamous ‘Wild West Show,’ arguing that while he is best known for his adventure in the U.S., “the greatest adventure of his life was to take place in the East.” The project is dealing with early American cultural imperialism in the Old World. In 1887, Bill Cody’s Wild West Show took Europe by storm, setting the stage for Hollywood’s subsequent “invasion” and the creation of the Western genre in movies.
