Ken Maynard in Tombstone Canyon a 1932 western that was released 78 years ago. This movie is typical of the western movies we used to see in the afternoons back in the 1950’s.
Maynard along with Bob Steele, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Jimmy Wakely and many other western stars kept us entertained after coming home from school.
I saw Jimmy Wakely in person while serving in the Army in Hawaii in the middle 1960’s when he put on a show at the service club. He was not only a movie star but also sang with Margaret Whiting on Slippin’ Around which went to No. 1.
He also had two No.1 hits in One Has My Name the Other Has My Heart and I Love You So Much It Hurts Me as a solo country and western artist.
