Western Wear and Jackrabbits

News articles from 1967

Cameron Mitchell, a star of NBC-TV’s upcoming “The High Chaparral” series, will display the latest in western wear when the series premiers: Boots with leather fringes around the sides, leather jacket that resembles a long vest, and a cartridge arm band, reported to be the first ever seen on television.

Mitchell favors the cartridges in the arm band over the traditional gun belt. “When you’re in a fast fight and lying on the ground, you simply can’t get to bullets in your belt,” he said.

Mitchell continues to have toe problems – he never seems to hurt his hands during fight scenes.  His toes take a beating instead.  Heis boots have soft tops and the toes keep getting stomped.

Leif Erickson, star of NBC’s The High Chaparral, is a big booster of the desert filming location near Tucson, Ariz. “The sky is blue, the colors of the desert are beautiful, but the best thing is you can turn that camera 360 degrees and not see one telephone pole and only an occasional jackrabbit,” said Erickson.

Henry Darrow, co-star of “The High Chaparral”, plans to establish a scholarship for Puerto Rican students to study theatre arts.  it was a Puerto Rican scholarship that brought Darrow to the Pasadena Playhouse in California.
