Henry’s fans will enjoy this in-depth look at his life and career, filled with stories about the business of Hollywood and the acting profession. High Chaparral fans will be fascinated at the in-depth view of his years as Manolito Montoya and the back-stage glimpses about making the show such as this one:

Darrow’s first horse, Diablo, wasn’t quite as good at avoiding Leif Erickson. In the initial scene where Darrow would do serious riding, he mounted up quickly and galloped through the yard to the ranch-house. Handsome black Diablo was reactive and fast. “All of a sudden, there was Leif Erickson on foot and I thought, oh my God, I’m going to run over him!” Darrow yanked the reins to turn Diablo, but wasn’t quick enough. The animal’s hip slammed into Erickson, tossing him in the air. “And that’s how I broke Leif’s wrist,” he says. “Somewhere, there’s a picture of him upside down just before he landed.” Erickson recovered with no hard feelings, but for as long as Chaparral aired, whenever anyone was on foot and Darrow rode up, he swears they took a step backward.
