One of the major leading ladies from the heyday of the B Western and serials, Peggy Stewart has been one of the staunchest supporters of both the Film Festival and the Lone Pine Museum, where she serves as a member of the Board of Directors. Having worked with almost all of the B-Western stars of the 1940s and 1950s, it is two films she made in Lone Pine with two of the leading singing cowboys that cement her place in Lone Pine film history. One is Trail to San Antone, a Gene Autry film featured in one of the prominent exhibits in the museum. The other is Utah, a Roy Rogers film where she is featured along with Dale Evans.
Barry Corbin began acting in the 1960s and has had a stellar career over the years portraying a variety of authority figures: lawmen, military leaders and more recently strong parental figures. In addition, on occasion, he has effectively been cast as murderous villains as well. Among his best-known work is his Emmy nominated work as one of the principles in the series Northern Exposure. Over the years, Corbin, who says “I love Westerns”, has appeared in a number of Westerns, both period and contemporary. He appeared in Lonesome Dove, Crossfire Trail, Monte Walsh and, more recently, No Country for Old Men and The Homesman. Barry is one of the featured players in Conagher, our Saturday night feature, and will sit for a Q & A after the showing.
