Shared Photos

Dwayne Sharp contacted us to generously share some of his family photos collected from his grandfather, Bob Sharp. Bob worked on the Tucson set.

High Chaparral was the last show he worked on before passing away with cancer, and Dwayne shared a family story. “Grandpa Sharp was always about work, and all the sets he worked on. On a shoot on High Chaparral, the Boom Truck, or some type of Rig, lost its brakes, and my Grandfather, Bob Sharp was at the wheel, and drove it down a hill, backwards, with out BRAKES to safety. I hope this helps out on who my Grandpa was on the HC. set. We, the Sharp family are very happy to remember HC , the actors, and the crew will remember my grandpa.”

Look closely at the signed photo by Mark Slade, and you’ll see a reference to this story about driving a truck backwards, down a hill with no brakes.

Thank you to the Sharp family for generously sharing their grandfather’s photos.

Don sebastian and victoria“I hope you are well and that everything is going good for you. Thank you for the recent HC newsletter. I always look forward to receiving it!!!!!

I just wanted to send you a vintage photo that I have in my TV western album from famous TV westerns. What is so special about this photo is that it is the one that local TV stations across the country received for their advertising of their respective affiliate stations (ABC, NBC, and CBS.) Wow, this is way before ALL the TV stations and channels we have today!!! I believe that it could have been used in TV Guide also, as well as the other local TV magazines that were produced all across the country.

One of my favorite happens to be from “The High Chaparral!” It is of both Frank Silvera and Linda Cristal as their respective characters, Don Sebastian and Victoria.

I love this photo and it is my favorite of Frank and Linda. There is so much affection between them and it makes me miss Mr. Silvera even more to this day! ”

Thank you Woody, for generoulsy sharing from your private collection with everyone!
