From Louis and Clarke to the great ol' California Gold Rush, America has had the great fortune of experiencing a plethora of awesome triumphs of the human spirit. Just gazing upon good Old Glory,one could just feel the patriotism, hard work and sacrifice that early Americans experienced in order to lay the foundation for their future children and for a Nation that will forever been known as the "Land of Opportunity."
The American Trail tells the story of these brave men and women. This thirteen part serial chronicles the beautiful history of the United States of America and tells of the lives that made the citizens of that great Nation look up at that Red, White, and Blue and say "You're a grand old flag, You're a high flying flag/ And forever in peace may you wave." ("You're a Grand Old Flag" by George M. Cohan).
This western adventure, a later version of the brief old time radio show Hawk Durango, is set in 1840s Texas. Hawk, a lover-not-fighter kind cattleman who can stand on a 10 foot ladder with only one boot, tells “stories of the men and women, famous and infamous, who loved and hated, lived and died, in the colorful drama of the American West.” Barton Yarborough, a true to life Texan who also starred in I Love a Mystery, intermittently plays both Hawk and his sidekick, Barney Phillips.
In 1952, Autry bought the old Monogram Ranch in Placerita Canyon (Newhall-Santa Clarita, California) and renamed it Melody Ranch. Numerous "B" Westerns and TV shows were shot there during Autry's ownership, including the initial years of "Gunsmoke" with James Arness. Melody Ranch burned down in 1962, dashing Autry's plans to turn it into a museum. According to a published story by Autry, the fire caused him to turn his attention to Griffith Park, where he would build his Museum of Western Heritage (now known as the Autry National Center). But like a phoenix rising, Melody Ranch came back to life after 1991, when it was purchased by the Veluzat family and rebuilt. It survives as a movie location today as well as the home of the City of Santa Clarita's annual Cowboy Festival, where Autry's legacy always takes center stage.
