OLIVER DRAKE (1903-1991), wrote, directed and produced a long list of Westerns in the 1930s and 1940s. He also acted in one film, Red Blood and Blue (1925) and composed songs for a number of films. Drake's songs include "Moon Over Montana", "Sweetheart of the Rio Grande", "Stardust Trail", "rose of the Prairie" and "Guns and Guitars". In the 1950s and 1960s, Drake directed TV's Sky King (1951-1962) and Colt .45 (1957-1960) as well as feature films. A former tennis pro, JAMES L.
