post Darrow Takes Prosperity Cautiously

One of the season’s big discoveries is Henry Darrow, the dashing young Mexican of NBC’s The High Chaparral. With all the excitement he’s caused, you might forgive him if he’d gone Hollywood.  He hasn’t. Far from it.

He just sold his old car – a ’55 Chevy – to a friend for $1 and bought himself a used ’63 Rambler convertible. He and his wife are still living in the $15,000 house they bought eight years ago.  It’s a nice little house, and they can measure every improvement in terms of the jobs that enabled them to do it.

“We have an Iron Horse rug,“ he says, because we could buy a rug when I did an Iron Horse episode.  We have a 36-weeks-at the Pasadena Playhouse master bedroom addition.  We have three-episodes-of-The-High-Chaparral worth of furniture.

“If the series is renewed, I may have my teeth capped,”

With his first paycheck from The High Chaparral, he bought a color television set so he could watch his show in color.

As to the rumors of his show going 90 minutes, Darrow has heard them but he isn’t too keen about the idea.

“Most of The Virginian and Cimmaron Strips I’ve seen,” he says, “wind up being stretched to make them 90 minutes – you see a guy taking things out of a wagon for two minutes to pad it out.”
