THE NICEST ASS TOWN WEST OF THE PECOS!
On March 29, 1939 Clark Gable and Carole Lombard spent their wedding night at the Oatman Hotel after having been married in Kingman,
Arizona. Remembering this memorable night, the couple often returned to the hotel for the peace and solitude it afforded them.
Clark was known to spend many a night playing poker with some of the miners. Sadly, Carole Lombard was killed in a plane crash in January
1942. Though devastated, Clark continued with his life and his career and later married again.
In 1851, while on their way to California, a band of Tonto Apache Indians entered the Oatman family camp. After a few uneasy minutes, the Indians pulled
out war clubs and with the exception of Olive, Mary Ann and Lorenzo, massacred the Oatman family. Brother Lorenzo's near dead body was thrown off a
cliff with his dying mother, and listened to her sobbing while she and her newborn baby died. Olive and Mary Ann Oatman were kidnapped, used as slaves,
and a year later traded to Mohave Chief Espaniol for two horses, some vegetables, several pounds of beans and three blankets.
In the Mohave Indian village they were treated much better, but life was still hard. The younger, frail Mary Ann died in 1854, probably from malnutrition.
Olive, at 16, was returned to her relatives in 1856.
The story made national headlines and raised a furor among non-Indians. The girls, from the Mojave point of view, were lucky to have fallen into their hands,
away from the Tonto Apaches. Under the circumstances, they were fortunate. The chief attached them to his household, and they were afforded the best
Mojave facilities, seeds for planting, love & divergence from Mojave customs.
|THE WHITE BUFFALO
Starring: Charles Bronson & Kim Novak
In this strange western version of JAWS, Wild Bill Hickok hunts a white
buffalo he has seen in a dream. Hickok moves through a variety of uniquely
authentic western locations - dim, filthy, makeshift taverns; freezing,
slaughterhouse-like frontier towns and beautifully desolate high country -
before improbably teaming up with a young Indian named Crazy Horse to
pursue the creature.
This is the actual Buffalo movie prop from the movie ===>
