Stage Coach Bandits, and Green Eggs & Ham
For more than forty years from the 1950’s to the 1990’s one of the most famous and powerful society ladies in New York City was Phyllis Fraser, the leading lady in this John Wayne adventure. She was solidly in the center of the most elite Manhattan social circles.
At the age of sixteen, Kansas City born Helen Brown Nichols went to Hollywood to live with her cousin Ginger Rogers, who convinced her to change her name to Phyllis Fraser. This movie is her most prominent motion picture role, and three years after making this film, she was tired of Hollywood and moved to New York City for a job in advertising. At the McCann Erickson advertising agency, she shared a desk with an illustrator named Theodor Seuss Geisel, before he was ‘Dr. Seuss.”
Within a short time, she met and married the Random House publishing magnate Bennett Cerf. Her interest in children’s books led her to create the “Beginner Books” label with Ted Geisel, and she collaborated with him on several Dr. Seuss books, including “Green Eggs and Ham.”
After her husband Bennett Cerf passed in 1971, she married Robert F. Wagner, Jr. a three-time mayor of New York City. Phyllis and husband Robert Wagner, Jr. served as the U.S. envoy to the Vatican during President Jimmy Carter’s administration.
In this adventure she is the daughter of the town doctor, in an almost-ghost town that John Wayne is trying to bring back to life. The stage coach owner in the nearby town will do everything he can to make sure that the little town of Crescent City never comes back to life, and that John Wayne and his partner will never succeed as stage coach operators. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
