Peggy Stewart

Peggy_Stewart_bothOne 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.

Sylvia Durando

Sylvia Durando Lone Pine Comanche Station 72 dpiSylvia’s grandfather, an oil baron and mining speculator who helped establish the oil fields in Signal Hill (Long Beach area) and Round Mountain (Bakersfield), purchased the palatial mansion of the silent cowboy film star and Tom Mix rival Fred Thomson from his widow Frances Marion.  Sylvia lived the life of luxury at the late cowboy’s estate for several years until her father, a successful Chief Draftsman for the Fluor Corporation and her mother, an avid horse trainer of American Saddlebred and Hackney horses, purchased a home in Burbank where Sylvia attended local schools. Her mother wrote articles for Saddle and Bridal magazine and encouraged Sylvia to begin riding as a child. Sylvia would go on to exercise horses for several people including a not so popular cowboy film star, but later, a more than decent President - Ronald Reagan.
