LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I really enjoyed reading “Cowboys Heroes of Yesterday” by Dr. Lorin Swinehart in your December 2013 issue. It brought back many memories and challenged me to remember others of that genre. I guess I didn’t see enough of Straight Arrow or Monte Hale to make an impression, so those names didn’t ring a bell.
But in my mind, in addition to those others mentioned in the article, I can still see Tex Ritter, Johnny Mack Brown, Whip Wilson, Harry Carey, Jr., Tim Holt and Chito, and even Bob Steele and Wallace Beery from older days.
Then I was reminded of the Statler Brothers song, “Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott?” Today’s world could use heroes like those film cowboys.
Thanks for the memories.
