PRESENTATION: MUSEUM THEATER - FRIDAY OCTOBER 5th @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
AUDIE MURPHY FIRST TOUR - Immediately Follows Presentation (3:30 PM - 6:00 PM)
First Tour Leaves from the South Parking Lot of Museum @ 3:30 PM
Prior to the first location tour Ross and Warren will present an overview of the life, times, and heroics in real life on and off the screen of America’s great war hero - Audie Murphy. The presentation will use images, film clips and music to showcase the many aspects of a very interesting man. Warren and Ross will focus on the three films that Audie made in the Lone Pine area. This includes; Hell Bent for Leather, Posse from Hell and Showdown. They will also show clips from other film locations that will be sighted on the tour.
Please note that there is only one presentation for the two tours. The presentation and the tour are very closely linked so Warren and Ross believe that you will find the tour more rewarding if you attend this presentation.
About Ross & Warren:
The call of the Alabama Hills has lured Warren Davey and Ross Schnioffsly back to Lone Pine. They have been rootin'-tootin', but very little shootin' lounge chair cowboys since Walt Disney dusted off Davy Crockett's old coonskin cap. Ross and Warren live just west of Lone Pine in the little frontier town of Melbourne, Australia. TV westerns arrived in Australia in 1956 and they have loved them ever since. Despite spending most of their working life in all forms of education from elementary schools to universities, Warren and Ross have held on to their sanity, barely! Ross, who loves making little docos on cinema history, was a research librarian at La Trobe University, Melbourne and Warren, who loves reading about all things western, is a retired elementary school librarian and both happily maintain disorganized lives. Ross and Warren will deliver a presentation on Audie Murphy followed by an updated location tour.
