A faithful Texas-reared reader informs us that the photo above is of an “old western star” very much prized by a relative’s dad, who is no longer with us.
She came to us for identification, but we are — sad to report — completely stumped.
Since our Texas-reared reader is Frank’s daughter-in-law Erin (who studied film for a time at the U. of T.), his ignorance in the matter is particularly embarrassing. We are the masters of the classic movie world, after all.
So we are throwing this open to our all-knowledgeable readers.
Can you identify this hombre?
If so, please let us know pronto. Thanks.
