I just discovered this great site, The Old Corral, that is dedicated to the heroes of the old B-Westerns from the period 1929-1954. The introduction says "No A Westerns, no TV Westerns, and no spaghetti Westerns." As of May, 2009, this site has been live for 11 years. The actual URL is www.b-westerns.com - easy to remember.
This site has a long list of heroes - like Johnny Mack Brown here - in the sidebar. All you need to do is click on each name and you will get a biography and photos. It also has information on singers and musician groups, heroines and leading ladies, villains, Indians, stunt men and even a link to "The Republic Stable of Bad Guys." There are also links to many of the old stars official Web sites.
Boy, you just can't go wrong with this site. What a treasure chest. Hats off to Chuck Anderson, "The Old Corral Webmaster."
