HOMES OF THE WESTERN STARS A-B

May 24, 2011

HOMES OF WESTERN MOVIE FILM MAKERS

IN FRONT AND BEHIND THE CAMERAS

BY BOB SILER

INTRODUCTION TO THE TOUR

Summer is just around the corner and families across the country are going to pack up their brood and hit the road for a few weeks of rest and relaxation. The only problem is, by the time you get back home you’ll be busted flatter than boxer’s nose. Tourest traps such as Disneyland are so expensive that the average family will have to save all year to pay just to get in the gate. Then there’s the high priced food, gifts, hotels, etc. and at the end of the day all your hard earned cash is gone. So, you pack the brood back up and crawl back home, where you’ll be working long past retirement just to pay off this vacation.

All that money you saved up is what keeps that damned mouse rich and sassy. While your dining on a cheap TV dinner, the mouse is dining on the finest cheeses from around the world. So, to hell with him, keep your cash, stick in the gas tank, drive to Hollywood, and visit some of the places where your favorite western heroes once called home.

Bob

— Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies.  A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die.  Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove.  He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years.  Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.
