(L-R) Clint Walker (“Cheyenne”), Richard Simmons (“Sgt. Preston”), Tom Tryon (“Texas John Slaughter”), Henry Calvin (Sgt. Garcia on “Zorro”), Edd Byrnes (“77 Sunset Strip”), Hugh O’Brian (“Wyatt Earp”). Not sure of the event, but judging from The Shaggy Dog with his handler and the various Disney characters, it might have been something Disney related. Circa 1959.

Charles Starrett and Delmar Watson discuss their scenes in an offscreen moment from “Outlaws of the Prairie” (‘37 Columbia). This Starrett film contains the most bloodthirsty, brutal scene in B-western history. Excruciating to watch, it’s amazing the scene made it past the censors. Two outlaws (Lambert Rogers, Dick Alexander) shoot and kill Starrett’s father while he watches as a young boy (Delmar Watson). He wings one of them in the arm with his rifle, then Rogers viciously cuts two fingers off the boy’s right hand with a hunting knife while the boy screams in pain. Rogers literally adds insult to injury and kicks the devastated boy leaving him crying and screaming in pain. Full grown, now a Texas Ranger, Starrett searches the West for the killer and eventually finds him.
