DANG!!!! I completely forgot about DORIS B.

I did meet DORIS more than once but I believe DORIS was from someplace back east (FLORIDA???)  and I had (dumbly) forgotten all about her.

A very GREAT lady by the way!


Florida is right- she was interviewed at the Sunset Classic on June 29th:

Funk...who is the 8' tall giant next to Don Peters? He is still taller than the dude on the box.

I once competed against Don. It was one of those unwise comeback attempts. He was a handsome man yet his physique was sadly no longer responsive.

CLINT WALKER now lives in Grass Valley, Ca. about an hour north of Sacramento and roughly an hour south of Truckee.

Beautiful country up 'thar" with Lake Tahoe being an aditional 20 minutes east of Truckee.

I mention this for two reasons ....

Clint was a close friend of James Drurey (The Virginian) and the Lake Tahoe/ Truckee/ Grass Valley area was where I learned how to grow up at a very young age.

If you want to see God's Country, pack it up and hike the Pacific Crest Trail.

As a kid, I always mistook Clint Walker for Jim Garner, But I think I've told that story before.

Back to BODYBUILDING .... Steve was 6 foot and as you can see Clint Walker was somewhat taLLER AT AROUND 6'6".

One of the writers at Muscle & Fitness had contact with Walker, and was vying to interview him. Never materialized.

If you love Old School and our brothers who continue to lift despite aging maladies you will love Peter Finch. The RX site interviewed me about what I know about Peter. They did a real nice piece....

We’ve been talking a lot about the old time West Coast (USA) bodybuilders, but there were a couple of other US areas that produced some damn good bodybuilding competitors.

Namely the New York area and the Florida area.

But  the vast majority of BB competitors resided in the Los Angeles area for numerous reasons such as film and TV work in front of and behind the cameras and the decent weather throughout the year.

SO it might be a decent idea to leave the West Coast for a while and give some credit to those guys and gals who were lifting heavy things in regions somewhat east of the Golden State of California.

And maybe even make an attempt to explain why Joe Weider packed it up and eventually moved to the Los Angeles area …. Initially to a small shop in Santa Monica which Dave Draper used to manage …. A one man operation at that time.

I’ll start this off  with some facts and photos of a great bodybuilder from Tampa, Florida by the name of “Haislop”.

To  be continued in 60 seconds …..

RONNIE, I never met nor did I ever work with James Arness. He was constantly working on the GUNSMOKE TV series while I was in LA.

I don't recall ever meeing Peter Graves but he did some work in the VIRGINIAN TV series when I was there so that could have been a remote possibility

I seemed to always be preoccupied and amazed by all the behind the scenes of the making of movie and TV shows to notice who was whom while on a set, most of the western TV and movie extras always seemed to be too damn tall to have a decent conversation with.

I'm 6'  but I always had to strain my neck and look way up to join in any conversation back then.

That was especially true among the cowboy extras in a TV show called THE BIG VALLEY with Barbara Stanwyck.

I happened be on that stage when they were 'filming' a scene in which a heard of cattle came walking over a hill while the 'cowboys' were having a conversation around a camp-fire in the fore-ground

It was amazing because it was all lit up to look completely real but it was being filmed inside a sound stage at Universal if I recall correctly.

When the scene was over, everyone stood up and I felt like a midget.
I can't explain why but I think all those extras had four inch 'elevators' in 'them thar' boots.

I guess what I'm trying to say is  ...... it's possible that I met a lot of well known actors on various sets but failed to recognize them because in real life they just don't look the same as they do on a TV or movie screen.
