The Cowboy, the Horse He Loved, and the Girl Who Loved Him

Leslie Charteris was an author who wrote books about the adventures of Simon Templar, The Saint, a robin-hood of sorts who helped people in trouble with the law. Leslie Charteris was one of the first members of the Mensa club for I.Q. geniuses. His father was English, and his mother was a Chinese lady tracing her ancestry to the Shang Dynasty.

In 1951, after divorcing his wife, Leslie Charteris was living in an apartment building on West Norton Avenue in Hollywood and was thinking that he had written his final adventure novel. Then a young lady who had just been divorced moved into the apartment next to his. They became fast friends, fell in love, and got married in April 1952.

His wife, Audrey Long, the female leading actor in this adventure, retired from acting to travel the world with her new husband. Just about everywhere around the world that they settled for a while, her husband was inspired to write another Simon Templar adventure using the local area they were visiting as the backdrop.

Leslie Charteris died in 1993, and his ashes were kept in a large urn. Audrey Long passed in 2014, was also cremated, and her ashes were placed inside the same urn as her husband Leslie. A plaque on the outside of that urn reads: “Love Never Dies.”

In this cowboy adventure Audrey Long is a doctor’s daughter who falls in love with a cowboy with a broken leg. After nursing him back to health, instead of settling down with her, the cowboy goes away to search for his horse, leaving her behind. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
