It’s time to saddle up and mosey over to the McKimmon Center at NCSU for another BIG western show and we’ve got two great films for you.
First, our Cowboy of the Year, Rex Allen stars in “Silver City Bonanza” (Republic, 1951) also starring Buddy Ebsen, Mary Ellen Kay and Billy Kimbley. Directed by George Blair. This film co-stars Alix Ebsen as Rex’s sidekick. “Alix” is Buddy Ebsen’s real name and is used in the official billing. “Buddy” was used in all original advertising.
Second, we’ll view one of Randolph Scott‘s best films, The Gunfighters (Columbia, 1947) also starring Barbara Britton, Dorothy Hart and Bruce Cabot. Directed by George Waggner. This movie will be shown in glorious Cinecolor and was filmed in beautiful Sedona Arizona. You will really like this excellent print which has been restored to its original brilliance.
We’ll also take in Chapter 13 of the Serial: “The Valley of Vanishing Men” (Columbia, 1942) Starring Bill Elliott, Slim Summerville, Carmen Morales and Kenneth MacDonald. Directed by Spencer G. Bennet. Don’t miss “Danger on Domed Rock!”
See you there.
