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.
