These are period photos I compiled and referenced while researching and writing both the screenplay and book of “Western Legend.”

  2. Interesting selection. Should attract response from those interested in the period. I’d suggest posting a link at http://truewest.ning.com/

  3. Oh yea – thanks David. I hadn’t thought of that. Even though I used True West Magazine as a source in my Bibliography. lol It gets complicated and you miss things like that. Good suggestion, thanks.

  5. Thanks. Always good to hear from a satisfied reader. I like your suggestions for cast. My own list would be: Hugh Laurie as Frank James (if he could deepen his voice a bit more and get the accent right,) John Hamm as Tom Horn, Sam Elliott as James Earp — and originally I was thinking Jeff Bridges for Virgil, but as of True Grit, not so sure that would work. Now I’m not sure who to cast there. Same with Armstrong; I’m open to suggestions.
