Hello Friends …

18 Oct

I’m heading out for 4 days. I haven’t been posting much lately, but I can assure that I am working on projects all the time. Typically I’m working on 3 posts at once.

These days it takes me longer to put a post together. I’m more particular than I used to be. I’m trying to include more content – do more research – and I rework pretty well every image I post. This takes a long time, but I want to do good stuff.

There are a number of projects of that I haven’t finished – including John Wayne’s Filmography. I will get back to those.


  • Between 1929 and 1971 Henry Hathaway Directed about 25 Westerns. I’m working through them one by one. It’s an interesting project for me. I hope it’s interesting to you too.  Hathaway’s Westerns include several films by 2 to of the Greatest Western Stars of all time: John Wayne and Randolph Scott.

  • I’m still working on a photo essay and Bio of Esther Ralston – who co-Starred with Randolph Scott in To the Last Man (1933). She had an amazing film career spanning 1915 to 1940 – appearing in about 45 films. She was a top Star in her day and was also ‘drop dead’ gorgeous – as you can see. There are a ton of superb images of her, but most require some re-working. Incredibly, she is almost unknown today. I figure she deserves more than a passing nod.

  • Mighty Niagara – a photo essay of our adventures in Ontario this summer.

Onward …

Back soon.

    Have a great time! It takes me a long time to put stuff together these days, too. It takes me days to get photographs ready to go and that doesn’t count going out to take them in the first place. And I write, rewrite, then write it again. We do get more picky about the quality of work over time. I think that’s how it’s supposed to work 😀

      I’m a bit too picky I think. Nobody notices all the great improvements I make. LoL! But I care about it so … Thank You.

    This was a great post on what your new coming posts your working on. I really like the black and white pictures on this post on John Wayne’s filmography.The pictures from Niagara are great on this post. Did you take any video of Niagara Falls?

      Hi Quinn! Thank You. I tried to take some video, but I found that video takes up a ton of space on my chip. Most of the videos I took did not turn our well unfortunately.
