    We have a channel that has these old westerns, but the quality of the prints is so bad, they are unwatchable. I keep hoping we’ll get a good western channel. Some day!

    Hi, JC! I stumbled up you when I went looking around for information on “Wild Horse Mesa”. Ha!
    The thread began while looking for Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.
    My current writing has me in AZ and one of the characters will get to know Zane Grey and the young Gary Cooper and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. The common denominator? A Zane western. Wow.
    Appreciate the post as it has helped me today.

      You’ve listed the 1936 version. I’m interested in the 1925 silent film….

      Well young Lady I just wisht I’d written that thing. Nice coincidence tho. Boy, you really get me hankering to go back to Arizona again. Rose wants to go back to Sedona at some point, but our dollar isn’t worth a nickel right now. Sounds like your Writing is going well. You seem to have found your ‘Voice’ – which is huge.

        If you visit Sedona, again, I’m only fifteen minutes away. Honestly, I recommend the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains. Straight shot north from Phx. Lots of beauty and character in places like Show Low and Payson. Tonto National Park is amazing. It was Zane Grey’s favorite spot in AZ. There’s a museum dedicated to him in Payson. Food for thought!
