Cowboys, Truckers, Bandits, Bloodshed and Baseball Players
Babe Ruth was the most famous baseball player that the New York Yankees ever had. With a .342 batting average, he pounded 714 home runs as part of 2,873 hits, earning seven World Series Championships. For many of his years as a baseball player, first baseman Bill Terry was part of the team. Bill Terry had a batting average of .341, with 2,193 hits, and 154 home runs. What do they have to do with a 1942 cowboy adventure? During the first half of the twentieth century one of the most famous and popular radio announcers was Walter Winchell. Walter Winchell loved the Yankees, and particularly Babe Ruth and Bill Terry.
In 1920 Ruth Mae McMahon was born in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Her father was a big and brawny bouncer in a dance hall, and little Ruth Mae would often sing with the band. As an adult Ruth Mae joined a Vaudeville act, and eventually got to New York City, where she worked for composer Irving Berlin, and then got her own nightclub act.
One evening, famous radio announcer Walter Winchell saw Ruth Mae in her act, and liked it enough that he met her after the show, and suggested that she might have a big future, but he suggested that she should change her name to something more memorable. That night, Walter Winchell combined the names of his favorite baseball players, and Ruth Mae McMahon became Ruth Terry.
In this cowboy adventure she is the daughter of a riverboat owner, and Roy Rogers and his buddies from the Sons of the Pioneers want her father to carry their cattle to market. It is 1942, and instead of driving the cattle to market overland, they load them onto big trucks, but the owner of the trucks has doubled his price, making it too expensive for the ranchers.
When Roy and the boys try to hire the riverboat to move their cattle to market, the trucker decides to do everything legal, and illegal, to stop them. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
