Martha--- Wilfred Brimley is a great character actor, but his life insurance and social sercurity spots leave a lot to be desired. He also does diabetes ads. ---- I suggest that you ride onto the stage. It's like riding a bike. Had you considered an agent to do spots like Brimley?....I am quite sure you're better looking. ----Still searching for a copy of the BC script.

I have never heard of the GB being televised. But I wouldn't be surprised if they make videos of it. The producer told me they would make very professional type videos of the clips of my films and show them on two full sized screens probably as they introduce you. They will have to use a lot of mine as the doubling is over so fast whereas a star can show a 'scene'. The best for me will be TBC, Love Me Tender, Interrupted Melody, Sheepman, Gun Glory, etc. BTW - I have not ridden in years as my husband had a major car accident in 83 and our life turned up-side-down. You have to hang onto the memories through. I have a web site called Second Running that is horse racing history and was fortunate to work with Laura Hillenbrand on her Seabiscuit book a little bit. And, then I was contacted by a collaborator to do a book. This keeps me pretty busy. I am hoping I can parlay this GB and the H of F thing into a 'then and now' bit of work re TV or publications that target seniors. Wilfred Brimley has certainly done OK! Fingers crossed.

Try this once you're on google: Red Rock Canyon - California (our message board doesn't seem to allow site paths)

There is a Web site that seems to confirm Red Rock canyon. Just go to google and type in Movies filmed at Red Rock Canyon and you will find at least two sites that mention TBC.

Red Rock as Blanco could be correct based on all the industry did there. I can see why Farmington was used for TBC...It really looks like the great plains. ---Martha: Is anyone going to televise the Golden Boot Awards that you know of? Are you still out there riding?

Hee-hee! Well - I keep going back to my original thoughts on this Blanco Canyon thing and I know that they worked at Red Rock Canyon (National Park) I have, all these years, thought it was indeed Red Rock. But - we shall dig it out if possible.

Martha: Hey...when do I get a hug? -- I was also interested in Ladder Ranch and its locations. On the Orvis site there's a view that looks like the basis for the facade. Bill..you have any thoughts on that? --- Some of the buildings used, as noted, are at Pollardville. It's a smarmy tourist site on Hwy 99 north of Stockton. I would also like the location of Blanco Canyon (Seems like something near Death Valley.)

I can't find my answer. But it was:
"That comes right after the hug!"
(hope this doesn't post twice)

Mrtha, If you see Jean Simmons, ask her where Blanco Canyon is. Kenton

Ha-ha! If Jean cannot do it I will try for Carroll Baker in a major effort to keep TBC alive.
I have always wondered if the shell of a house (Ladder Ranch) that was built around an old farm house was left up or did the studio take it down. Let us know when you have your visit. Lucky you!
