The Vaudeville Burlesque Comic and the Cowgirl
Kenneth Abner Doncourt was born in New York City in 1903. Raised by his grandparents, his single-parent father was a Vaudeville performer who he thought was his older brother. The Vaudeville Burlesque stage was his life-long passion, and he was a successful stand-up comedian calling himself Ken Murray, eventually moving to Hollywood.
During World War Two he was often seen donating his time and talents in the Hollywood Canteen for servicemen, and he made his living by creating a Burlesque comedy review at the El Capitan Theater on Vine Street. “Ken Murray’s Blackouts” featured a large bosomed blonde girl in sexy comedy skits with him, showgirls dancing, tap dancers, trained birds and musicians. One of the performers that he introduced to the world was a Cuban born singer and drummer named Desi Arnaz, who replaced comedian side-kick Billy Gilbert in his show.
One evening during those high-flying years Ken Murray spotted a lovely blonde girl selling cigarettes at Ciro’s, and he hired her to appear in his “Ken Murray’s Blackouts” show. Laurie Anders, raised on a ranch in Casper, Wyoming, was an accomplished ventriloquist, martial arts master, trick roper and horseback rider. After a couple of years on stage with Ken Murray as one of his showgirls, he decided to finance and produce this cowboy adventure to showcase her talents and her beauty, while deftly blending in some of his finest vaudeville comedy lines and skits.
This movie would be the first and final motion picture for the young blonde bombshell, who would then marry a publicist and live the rest of her days with him in the Tarzana neighborhood of Los Angeles. In this story she is the sharp-shooting daughter of an old U.S. Marshal whose only wish was to have a son who could fight the outlaws by his side. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
