Oops...had that as Harold Arlen when I first hit "Publish Post". Don't know if anyone caught it...

Would have been a very different movie though.

Yip! I missed that! ;-)

A local museum has a wonderful series of locations shots for this film, some from the Carrizo Gorge's Goat Canyon, with its spectacular curved wooden trestle as part of the background, and lots of rolling stock with their peculiar camera gear and such. I'll have to see about digging some of those pics up.

I've seen a few Colleen films, she's absolutely adorable. I also like her in Kevin Brownlow's Hollywood series; all those years later and still sporting the same hairdo!
