The Touch of Roy and Dale. A book for all generations, it easily answers the question: What is a hero?
Roy and Dale's greatest accomplishment was never their celebrity. As the collective voices of this
book so poignantly, sometimes humorously, sometimes rawly, reveal, it was their uncommon and
generous humanity that made them heroes

Lone Pine In The Movies (2011) [Paperback]
by James V. D'Arc, Ed Hulse, Chris Langley & Don Miller


Presenting over 100 pages of rare photos and fact-filled articles written by noted film historians  who have chronicled filmmaking in Lone Pine.

One hundred years ago, Leonard Franklin Slye was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. His family later moved to the small hamlet of Duck Run, where they worked a farm that produced a meager living. Young Len wanted a lot more from life, and he eventually got it—as Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys, hero to millions of American children and a star of both big-screen and small-screen. Roy began his storied career in Lone Pine, where his first starring film—Under Western Stars—was made in early 1938. In two excellent essays by Ed Hulse and Don Miller, we examine in some detail that motion picture and other aspects of his career.

Chris Langley has been contributing to Lone Pine in the Movies since we published the first issue in 2003. From that number we have reprinted by popular demand his groundbreaking article on silent-era director Clarence Badger.

This year, with his superb article on the film Brigham Young (1940), we enlist in our Writers Brigade a distinguished new contributor., James V. D’Arc. Jim is curator of the BYU Motion Picture Archive, the BYU Film Music Archive and the Arts and Communications Archive, and also runs the BYU Motion Picture Archive Film Series.

Also included is a revised list of films made wholly or partially on locations in Lone Pine and the eastern Sierras
