Pin it

January12, 2003: The Museum recently received four wonderful gifts for its collection. Bob Slater of Lone Pine contributed two props from his personal collection. The first is a wooden pail that he saw fall off the back of a covered wagon during the filming of the famous wagon chase scene from HOW THE WEST WAS WON. He reports he came back several days; no one had retrieved the prop, and filming was completed, so he picked it up. A second prop, a handmade wooden child’s play chair from the film THUNDER IN THE SUN, starring Susan Hayward and Jeff Chandler, was also given to the Museum by Bob.
