BORDERTOWN TRAIL MOVIE CAST: SMILEY BURNETTE, SUNSET CARSON
Carson and Burnette sign as the starring duo of the Western adventure Bordertown Trail
Photograph signed: "Sunset/Carson" and Smiley Burnette", B/w 8x10. Scene from Bordertown Trail (1944). Directed by Lesley Selander, the film is an action-adventure story of two Texas border patrolmen (Carson and Burnett) trying to intercept the smuggling of illegal gunpowder into US territory. Actor, singer and songwriter Smiley Burnette (1911-1967), born Lester Alvin Burnette, appeared on vaudeville before joining his friend, Gene Autry, on the radio show, The National Barn Dance. Burnette and Autry broke into films together in 1934 (In Old Santa Fe), and they went on to appear in over 80 Westerns. Burnette, who played Autry's sidekick, Frog Milhouse, also provided comic relief for other Western stars, including Sunset Carson and Charles "Durango Kid" Starrett. A talented musician who played over 100 instruments, Burnette wrote over 300 Western songs, some of which he sang in his films. After retiring from the big screen in 1953, Burnette debuted on the small screen in 1958, appearing as a regular on the TV series, Ranch Party. His best known TV role was as Charley Pratt (1963-1967) on the TV sitcom, Petticoat Junction. Rodeo rider Winifred Maurice Harrison (1920-1990) was given the name Sunset Carson by Republic Studios, for whom he starred in a number of western films in the mid-1940s. He starred in his own film series, beginning with The Sheriff of Cimarron (1945). He was later a popular guest at B Western nostalgia shows, and hosted a TV film revival series, Six Gun Heroes. Lightly toned at corners. Fine condition.
