In this newly illustrated edition---THOSE GREAT COWBOY SIDEKICKS is an in-depth examination of such fondly remembered comic character actors as George "Gabby" Hayes, Smiley Burnette, Andy Devine, Al "Fuzzy" St. John, Pat Buttram, and many other sidekicks of the B Westerns-thirty-nine in all! Much of THOSE GREAT COWBOY SIDEKICKS is told through the reminiscences of the sidekicks themselves (those who are still kicking) and the cowboy stars who enjoyed the company of these often bewhiskered, tobacco-chewing saddle pals. Author David Rothel interviewed many of the top Western stars, sidekicks, heroines, directors, writers, relatives, and Gower Gulch extras in his effort to tell the story of these comic actors. Mr. Rothel also provides the reader with the rare opportunity to go behind the scenes to discover the manner in which Western screen comedy was created. (It wasn't all just falling into horse troughs, you may be sure!)
