It’s time for another big show at the Bar-M (McKimmon Center) on the NCSU campus. Thursday, February 20 at 7:00 pm, we will celebrate RED RYDER!
Red Ryder came to life November 6, 1938 in Stephen Slesinger’s comic strip “Little Beaver”. On June 28, 1940, Red Ryder hit the big screen in the 12 chapter serial “The Adventures of Red Ryder”.
That was 80 years ago!!!
Our first feature will be “California Gold Rush” (1946) starring Wild Bill Elliott as Red Ryder. It co-stars Peggy Stewart in the female lead. Peggy holds several records in the Red Ryder series: She is the only actress to appear with all three Red Ryders and she married the fourth (Don Red Barry).
The headlines proclaimed “ HERO OF MILLIONS…Slugging His Way Through A Thousand Dangers To Battle Murderous Cutthroats In Search Of Gold!” so ya know it’s gotta be good.
Our second feature is “Oregon Trail Scouts” (1947) starring Allan Lane as Red Ryder. This film has Roy Barcroft, Emmett Lynn, Earle Hodgins, and Indians! It’s slam packed with action and excitement.
We will begin with two episodes of our serial “The Tiger Woman” (1944) starring Linda Stirling and Allan Lane.
Chapter 5 “Two Shall Die” (Which two will be chosen?)
Chapter 6 “Dungeon of the Doomed” (Can they escape! Or will they perish?)
You will have to be there to findout!
Don’t miss this BIG and EXCITING show!!
