Posse: The Story of A Gallant Band of Horsemen Who Made Movie
by Diana Serra Cary (University of Oklahoma Press,
1996, 276 pages.)
Mrs. Cary has an insight into the subject that possibly
no one else today has. Her father was a cowboy stuntman who doubled
for Tom Mix and worked from the 'teens almost until his death
in 1962. But there's more than just being a stuntman - for these
men, it was a way of life that, when the west "died,"
the movies allowed them to continue. They were definitely a "breed
apart." Great insights into early movie -making. The tale
is sometimes sad, sometimes humorous. Certainly a book that needed
to be written and one that needs to be read.
