The Horse High, Bull Strong, and Hog Tight Gunfight at Cassie’s Corral
William Edgar Buchanan, a family dentist in Eugene Oregon, wanted his son to become a dentist also, but while at the University of Oregon as a pre-med student, he also studied drama, and quit his dental studies to take a position in the drama department at the University of Oregon.
After much urging from his father, young Edgar returned to the North Pacific Dental College where he not only became a Doctor of Dental Surgery, but met and married a young lady who also became a dentist. He became the chief of oral surgery at the Eugene Hospital Clinic, and also held a full time position as the assistant director of the University of Oregon drama department, and in his spare time founded the Eugene, Oregon “Very Little Theatre.”
After nine years in Oregon Edgar and his wife moved their private practice to Pasadena, California, where he was spotted in a community theater by a motion picture talent scout. He became a very successful character actor in motion pictures while his wife Mildred handled the family dental practice. Edgar kept up his dental skills, occasionally opening his medical bag on the set to help an ailing cast member.
In this cowboy adventure he is a retired Texas Ranger who is contacted by his old Texas Ranger Captain to come to a small western town in Nevada that is being run by a gang of corrupt crooks. Unfortunately, Edgar Buchanan, along with Walter Brennan, Andy Devine and Pat O’Brien, are much too old to deal with the corrupt mayor, judge and sheriff that have the town in their evil clutches.
With their gun fighting skills long gone, there is only one way that these old-timers will be able to save the town from the outlaws. “Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance.” - David Mamet, film director, screenwriter, author and blogger.
