Oh well, even the best of us occasionally make mistakes! The important thing is that you got the essence of the post back up on the message board so nothing was really lost.

Happens to the best of us! :bounce:

Ronald Reagan Death Valley Days
Ronnie beats up the bully at the bar a little too easily in this clip, but I'm sure the script matched the fantasies of many wannabe cowboys out there in TV Land!

Anyone know if any of the actors who appeared in Death Valley Days will be showing up to the Lone Pine Film Festival this weekend? I know that the Lone Pine event is the same week as the Trona Gem and Mineral Show, but I figure someone here is likely to know what's going on just the same.

This is probably the poorest fight scene in the history of television, but back in the 1960s the bar was set exceptionally low! Something tells me that Uncle Ronnie wouldn't have been able to pull off a real fight scene, but then again there were a lot of things he couldn't do very well...

1941 RIDERS OF DEATH VALLEY SERIAL TRAILER BUCK JONES :wtf:
Worst theme song in history. Horrible background music. Bad acting. Terrible gun fight. Basically, it's a disaster, but people watched this stuff back in the old days!

Waterhole #3 (1967)
Looks like it was filmed around Lone Pine, Cerro Gordo, and Red Rock Canyon. (The original video got taken down and so here's a short clip with stills from a couple scenes.)

This clip is pretty funny...

CrustyOldFart: Interesting post! While I appreciated the familiar locations, I wasn't too thrilled with the music. The movie was basically a musical with corny songs which contained a lot of extremely weak jokes. It was definitely not much of a movie, but it was interesting on account of the locations, but other than that it was horrible!

Ronald Reagan Tribute to the Dog 1964 :roll2:
Ole Ronnie laying it on hot and heavy. The scriptwriter overdid the corny ass BS on this one! It's amazing that such an idiot wound up as president.
Would you walk a mile for me?
