    3 more filmed in and around Lone Pine. In 1966, Bonanza aired a 2-part program "The Pursued" directed by William Witney. Pa Cartwright was down to just 2 sons by then, Hoss and Little Joe. "The Pursued" had an excellent guest cast of Eric Fleming, Dina Merrill, and Lois Nettleton. Great use of the Alabama Hills by Witney added tension to a tale of religious bigotry and persecution. Fool's Gold (renamed Man from Butte for a re-issue) had Hoppy out of his usual black attire and in disguise in a den of thieves. And Masked Raiders with Tom Holt had an excellent supporting cast including Marjorie Lord, Clayton Moore, Tom Tyler, and a personal favorite character actor, Houseley Stevenson.

    Still gathering up our schedules, etc. from the Festival. Last night we watched Gun Smugglers, one of the 12 movies starring Tim Holt that were filmed in Lone Pine.

    Re-watched High Sierra last night. Locations include the town of Lone Pine and the Whitney Portal Road. My contemporary photo shows the road today. The Whitney Portal Road is also used in The Long Long Trailer with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and The King of the Khyber Rifles with Tyrone Power. I like the Italian poster which translates as "A Bullet For Roy."

    Still editing photos, etc. from the Lone Pine Film Festival. We watched Barbary Coast Gent last week. Wallace Beery's good badman character was loosely based on legendary stagecoach robber "Black Bart" who left poetry behind after his holdups. The title lobby card shows a holdup in the Alabama Hills.

    We watched Somewhere in Sonora (1933) last night. My partner commented on how young (26 years old) and handsome John Wayne appeared. Australian J. P. McGowan (a veteran of the Second Boer War) played the suave murderous villain, Monte Black. Henry B. Walthall, who had starred in D.W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation (1915), was billed third after Wayne's horse "Duke."
