Don your Western wear and watch a classic Western movie
Owen Wister is said to have created the first romantic cowboy in 1902 with his best-selling novel The Virginian. The hero, known as “the Virginian”, was brave and honorable, tough but soft-spoken. The Virginian was portrayed on the big screen in 1929 by Gary Cooper, in 1946 by Joel McCrea, and from 1962 to 1971 by James Drury in a television series of the same name.
I’ve gathered some photos of Bill from his cowboyin’ days on the Flying M.E. dude-divorce ranch. Hope you enjoy.
