Bob’s B-Western wanderings
Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Wild Bill Elliott, The Durango Kid, Tom Mix, Ken Maynard, Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, Sunset Carson, Bob Steele.
These are names that a select group of people would recognize today. But at one time they were larger-than-life heroes who rode the cinematic range, righting wrongs, rounding-up rustlers, bashing bushwackers and making the West safe for good people.
From time to time, I will offer my views on specific films, stars, actresses, sidekicks and character actors who roamed the plains using their six-shooters, brains and, sometimes, their vocal talents, to tame the frontier.
