    Love this site. Information on all of my favorite western actors and stunt men and woman. I like it.

      I am so very glad that you are enjoying my site. I have always thought that the stunt men and women are the unsung heroes of action films and I am honored that Diamond felt comfortable talking with me about not only himself but the other wonderful people who make the movie heroes look so good.

    Thank you for a most enjoyable show. I worked for Stanley Warner Theaters back in 1950’s, when a teen ager, changing the lettering and sheets. Got to do shows with Tex Ritter; Lash LaRue; Fuzzy St. John; Chita; and some forgotten. Now almost 81years old, my office is overflowing with the B Westerns.
    On favorite is a photo Gene Autry sent me the year before he died. Not sure how the Lord will feel about B Westerns, but still enjoying.
    My address is below. If available, could someone send me a copy of the Pine Festival phampket. I probably will not make it to ever see where the action took place.
    Just downloaded Trail of Robin Hood today. Roy still looks like 29 and I look like 81+.
    Thanks for a good show.

      Hi Pastor Ralph, I am so glad that you enjoyed Trail of Robin Hood. That is the only movie that I was in and it sure was fun working with so many of our Western movie heroes. I have asked people at Lone Pine to send you information about the Film Festival and the Museum of Western Film History. Lone Pine is a wonderful place and there were hundreds of great movies made there. Cheryl
