Patrick Wayne - Reel Cowboy Honoree

The spacious ballroom of the Sportsman Lodge was overflowing with a ton of ten-gallon hats and curvaceous cowgirls to celebrate the 24th Silver Spur Awards. Gorgeous Stuntwoman Marguerite Happy, who appeared in such films as “Back to the Future” and “Die Hard” acted as Master of Ceremonies and Special Guest, Mark Staggs warmed up the standing-room-only crowd of cinema cowboys.

Among one of our favorite actors, Patrick Wayne (son of the Legendary John Wayne was honored. Did you know Pat has appeared in over 40 films and has taken the helm as the head of the John Wayne Cancer Fund? Others honored at this event included the still adorable Dawn Wells – who is best remembered as Mary Ann in “Gilligan’s Island”. The plucky beauty also starred in many TV Westerns, including “The Wild Wild West”, “Bonanza” and “Wagon Train”.

We loved seeing Silver Spur Honoree Johnny Crawford (“The Rifleman”, “Wagon Train”, etc.). Last time we saw him he was conducting his famous 1920’s orchestra, that performs at many special events. Also honored were actors Billy Zane, Robert Carradine and the late Steve Mc Queen, whose widow Neile McQueen accepted his award. There were too many others responsible for creating this rip-roaring evening, but special thanks to Robert Lanthier (President), Julie Ann Ream and Publicity Director Roger Neal for including us in this very special evening.

And speaking of Roger Neal, his handsome son (Roger) stopped the show at the recent Family Film Awards at the Universal Hilton. Singing and dancing in homage to Michael Jackson, and performing one of his original songs. The young artist recently signed with Foundation Records and definitely is a talent to watch.
