Here is one that I have never posted before … Cochise ( Michael Ansara ) and his date / lady friend, Denise Darnell, Miss Kitty ( Amanda Blake ) and Doc ( I cannot remember his name right now ) from Gunsmoke. They are standing outside a room down at the Town House Motor Lodge on Cervantes. We all know Cochise, Kitty and Doc, but I Googled Denise Darnell and the only thing I came up with was a movie she made back in 1950 called ” The Striptease Murder Case ” or something to that effect. Maybe some of you out there have heard something about her and could fill us in. Whatever, she sure dresses nice … she looks as if she has Hollywood written all over her … the white gloves and white framed sun glasses … I doubt she picked those up down town at Woolworth’s on Palafox Street.
Now on a serious note, I want to thank Troy Moon at the Pensacola News Journal for writing the article and for Ginny Graybiel, the managing editor of the Pensacola News Journal, for publishing the article. It was a very nicely written and factual piece on my father’s photography and this blog. I also want to thank Katie King on the nice photo that she made of me with some of the photographs … that should earn her newspaper award somewhere!! Thanks again for the great piece … Frank
One more thing … to all the people who have been so kind to write comments here on this blog, I appreciate everything that everybody has written and I respond to all comments that that have been written so far. And I plan on writing a response to everyone that has written today, but because there have been so many of them, it is going to take me some time, however I want to do it to show my appreciation, so please bear with me. Thanks again for looking … Frank
Here is Michael Ansara as ” Cochise ” standing in front of a Geronimo sign the State of Florida dedicated back in the 1950’s when he came to Pensacola back in the 1950’s. I am sure that the “political correctness” crowd would hysterical now if this was to happen. Mr Ansara must have been a good sport about all of this … the photos I have posted of him in the past has him signing autographs and he is smiling in all the photos. If anyone was around at the time he visited and remembers seeing ” Cochise ” around town and spoke with him. we would love to hear from you … Thanks again for looking
This is a photo of Michael Ansara, ” Cochise “, that my dad made when he flew here to Pensacola to dedicate a sign for the Indian Geronimo. I doubt that it would be done today, with all the political correctness out there, but Mr. Ansara seemed to be a good sport about the whole thing. My dad said he was very nice and agreed to whatever anyone asked him to do. I have several other photos of him that I will post as I come across them. Thanks for looking …
