One or two comments about BZ.

Interesting Cameron Mitchel anecdotes comparing HP to BZ and what he based his character on. Also an explanation of why HC was cancelled.

Other info, too.

If this was posted before, sorry.

I read part of it and am going to go back and read the rest. Ah, I miss Cameron Mitchell. I liked him so much. It would have been nice to meet Henry Darrow as well.

:thanks tym
“My horse Prince…every one of our close-ups became a two-shot because he was a ham. I did a lot of shots where I ad-libbed with the horse. He used to follow me around like a puppy dog. The one great thing about ‘ol Prince were his ears. They were always up. If a horse’s ears are down, he looks horrible. Price always had his ears up. Some days he wasn’t very alert, but if you had a real tough action scene, I’d put on one spur, just one. I didn’t use it, but he knew it was there…he heard it. He was a different horse. You touched him and he took off! He finally died in his 30’s.”
I've known him to speak of his horse with great affection and I'm glad to read this again.
