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. PEGGY STEWART (born Peggy O'Rourke in 1923), who appeared in many films, mostly Westerns, from the late 1930s into the 1960s, was one of Republic Picture's leading ladies in the 1940s. Tired of being cast in serials, she left Republic, but continued making occasional films. Stewart later appeared in several made-for-TV movies and was a guest star on a number of TV series, and she made stage appearances in the Los Angeles area. Stewart, who was married to actors Don "Red" Barry (1940-1944) and Buck Young (1953 until his death in 2000), is also a popular figure at Western film and nostalgia gatherings. The Black Lash cast LaRue and sidekick Fuzzy St John in familiar roles, but Peggy Stewart plays the bad guys girl in this one! The film, suffering from a small budget, employed much stock footage from LaRue's earlier films, giving him more incentive to shift to television. Former vaudeville entertainer and opera singer FRED SCOTT (1902-1991), who had appeared in some Mack Sennett comedies of the silent film era, gained popularity as "the Silvery-Voiced Buckaroo" in low-budget Western movies of the 1930s. French industrialist Charles Pathé was a major force in the early film industry, producing both newsreels and feature films. The disruptions of World War I began a long decline for Pathé studios, which were finally absorbed into RKO films in 1932. Scott made three of his early films (1930-1931) for Pathé. IRON EYES CODY (1907-1999) appeared in over 100 films and more than 35 television series as an American Indian but his name at birth was Espera DeCorti (he was the son of two first generation Italian immigrants). Cody, who appeared in a number of films with Roy Rogers, including Young Bill Hickock, Young Buffalo Bill, In Old Cheyenne, Under Nevada Skies, North of the Great Divide, Son of Paleface and Alias Jesse James, was best known as the Indian who sheds a tear for a blighted American environment in the "Keep America Beautiful" television ads that ran from 1971 into the 1980s. LOIS JANUARY (1913-2006) was a B Western heroine of the 1930s, cast opposite Johnny Mack Brown, Bob Steele, Tim McCoy, Reb Russell and others. She also appeared on Broadway, and had her own radio program, Reveille Sweetheart (1941-1946). She had two bit parts in The Wizard of Oz: as a manicurist who sings to Dorothy in the Emerald City; and as a woman holding a cat that Toto leaps out of the balloon to chase. January appeared in TV guest spots through 1987. n in 1946, his first role was in the comedy The Harvey Girls (1946). He went on to perform in The Astounding She-Monster (1957), Die Watching (1993), The Stoneman (2002) and The Thundering 8th (2000). Brown opened his own production company call Movie Tech Studio and helped make films such as A Whale of a Tale (1977), Dismembered (2003) and Live Fearless (2011). 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. TERRY FROST (1906-1993) played supporting roles, usually as a villain or henchman, in dozens of B- Western films of the 1940s and 1950s. He made guest appearances on virtually every TV Western through the mid-1960s, from Range Rider (1951) to Gunsmoke (1966). He later ran a Los Angeles coffee shop and became a popular attraction at B-western conventions. STEVE BRODIE (1919-1992) played supporting roles in many highly regarded films, including A Walk in the Sun, Out of the Past, The Steel Helmet and The Caine Mutiny. Late in his career, he also appeared in some clunkers lampooned on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (The Wild World of Batwoman, The Giant Spider Invasion). He played frequent TV guest roles from the early 1950s, including multiple appearances on The Lone Ranger, Science Fiction Theater, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Wyatt Earp, Perry Mason and Bonanza. American actor FRANK MITCHELL (1905-1991) was born in New York City, New York. He appeared in over seventy films between his debut in the 1920 film Humoresque and the 1980 film Coal Miners Daughter. He was part of a comedy duo with Jack Durant and the two appeared in several films together including She Learned About Sailors (1934), 365 Nights in Hollywood (1934) and Music is Magic (1935). Mitchell is best remembered for his roles in the 1952 film Scaramouche and the 1953 film Goof on the Roof. Actor HENRY WILLS (1921-1994) appeared in over 200 film and television credits during his almost 50 year career, mostly in supporting or bit roles in television. Some of his most notable appearances include roles in The High Chaparral (1967), Bonanza (1960), and Rawhide (1959). Wills was also a prolific stunt man, performing over 180 stunts, mostly on the same Westerns and television series he acted in. Lightly bowed. Fine condition.
