SERIAL SOURCES

by JOSEPH C. ZAWACKI 

This my attempt to keep you (& your subscribers) appraised of my ventures into ordering non-commercial serials on-line. I found a source in MD called Serial Bowl & ordered a few items from them including the Columbia serial “The Iron Claw”. They listed the serial as “fair” quality but it was anything but. There were many night time scenes and they were basically unwatchable. Their email is serial-bowl.com and they can be snail-mailed at Skymarshall Productions, 11140 Rockville Pike. Suite 100, #132, Rockville, MD 20852.

I next tried a source n FL called Serials & Such and got a nice email from a fellow named Charles Knott (whom I think is older than the serials). He claims that he checks all his serials and does not sell any that are less than “fair” quality. He also had “Iron Claw” listed as “fair” and, in this case, it was. He also had a copy of the Universal “Call of the Savage” that is available commercially…..and his copy is very superior to that one. I have gotten a half dozen from him @ $10 per and they are all watchable (and certainly a better “fair” quality than the Serial Bowl stuff listed as “fair.” It’s sorta like the pre-electric recordings that Louis Armstrong made in the 20s. They are tinny with low fidelity but – better to have Armstrong’s genius that way than not to have them at all. The place where “fair quality” is indeed fair – good luck so far with about a half-dozen titles – is serialsandsuch.com; address is Charles D. Knott (rumor has it that he carried the tablets down the hill for Moses); 7159 Hope Hill Road; Brookville, FL 34601-5616.

Both places charge $10 per disc.

$19.95 -- From Cheyenne to Pendleton, The Rise and Fall of the Rodeo Cowgirl (2010) This film explores the 25-year rise and fall of the western rodeo cowgirl through the lives of Idaho s Bonnie McCarroll, Colorado s Bertha Blancett and Washington s Mabel Strickland. It follows their lives and achievements while it goes outside of the rodeo to answers the question of where did these talented women come from and what led to their eventual removal from the rodeo arena.

The film opens in 1904 as 21-year-old Bertha, arrives in Cheyenne, Wyoming for 8th annual Frontier Days Rodeo the first year women were allowed to compete in the bucking bronc competition. The film ends with the tragic and avoidable death of Bonnie McCarroll at the 1929 Pendleton Round-Up.

The reason I made the film was to answer the simple question: Why were women allowed to compete in the rodeo and why were they removed from the arena? Many historians point to the death of Idaho s beloved cowgirl Bonnie McCarroll at the 1929 Pendleton Round-Up as the reason for the expulsion of women from the rodeo arena, but in reality, the tide had turned against the cowgirls many years earlier.

Both the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo and the Pendleton Round-Up had difficulties with Mabel Strickland, a 98-pound steer roper who set the world s record at Frontier Days in 1924 an accomplishment that was written up in newspapers and magazines across the country. Both rodeos barred this petite woman from competing against the cowboys. Throughout the 1920s the rodeo cowgirl was losing ground to the Rodeo Queen, an invention of the Pendleton Round-Up, which was viewed as the more appropriate role for women.

You can t begin to understand the history of women s rodeo unless you understand the current events of the early 20th century. By the spring of 1929, the Rodeo Association of America had already announced that 1929 would be the last year for women in the rodeo. It is sad that Bonnie McCarroll's tragic and avoidable death at the Pendleton Round-Up was used as the excuse to remove women from western rodeo.

SERIAL SOURCES
by JOSEPH C. ZAWACKI


    Had a good first time experience with a new source. Found out that he had a copy of the hard-to-find 1933 Mascot “The Wolf Dog” (one of two Mascot titles that I didn’t have). I asked him in an email how he rated the quality of the print. He replied that he thought it was 7 ½-8 on a 1 to 10 scale. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. Not that it is pristine quality but, even with some hiss in the sound track and some obvious wear, it is better quality than the “fair” Columbia copies that I told you about (and was satisfied with) from Serials & Such.  I am going to order some more titles from him next week and, upon receipt, will give you (and your readers) more feedback.  The source is johnnysrareserials.com. The fellow’s name is Johnny Fusilier; 20326 Vineyard Road; Hammond, LA 70401; 985-542-4139. Queries can be directed to jfusilier@charter.net I have received over a half dozen serial titles from him. None are available commercially (to my knowledge) at retail and all have been at least fair (to me) in visual & sound quality. The hard-to-find “Wolf Dog” (Mascot, 1933) had some “jumps” & skips and some hiss in the soundtrack; however, for $10 (to use my favorite analogy), having this copy is better than not having it all.

Question: Have you watched the Buck Jones 1934 Universal serial “The Red Rider” that (I think) Heritage House cleaned up & released. Don’t know if it was just the mood I was in or the fact that a female contributed to the screenplay (or both) but, to this Buck Jones fan, it is one of the more ENJOYABLE cliffhangers I have watched in a while.

CAMPFIRE COMMENTS

by NORMAN H. KIETZER


Just want to say hats off to the Serial Squadron headed by Eric Stedman and the fine job they have done. I was really pleased with their Daredevils of the West DVD which is available through our fan club for $40.00. This is one of the serials I had all but given up ever seeing xomplete in my lifetime and in my opinion they did an excellent job on it.

Earlier they put out the best version ever of King of the Mounties DVD which is available through our fan club for $29.95. I think this version is a lot better than the vhs tape version put out some years back by Jack Mathis for several times that cost. Stedman and Company did a much better job of filling in the gaps that are missing from the available material.

They also did an excellent job on both of The Lone Ranger serials. The Lone Ranger (29.95) and The Lone Ranger Rides Again ($24.95) Here again the only thing that exists for many of the chapters were well used foreign films with subtitles and they cleaned everything up so much better than any of the other versions of these two serials issued earlier.
