Golden Horseshoe Revue

Here's a nice interior of the Golden Horseshoe Revue during a show. That looks like Wally Boag/Pecos Bill to me, or is it one of this stand-ins? I never had the pleasure of seeing this world famous show in person, but from what I understand it was the rootin' tootinest!


The slide was quite scratched and faded, so I am fairly pleased with the results after investing lots of TLC, even if it is a bit grainy.

Tough to tell, as the image is so small and far. But my guess is that it's Wally -- primarily because this is a posed photo (Pecos Bill always left the stage before the can-can number) for which they'd probably use the A-Cast.

This looks like Wally to me. And it doesn't look like a posed shot; I don't think they'd do a posed shot with the audience there.

Dreemfinder, I am almost certain that this is not a posed shot...all of the other pictures in this lot of slides were the type that you'd see in any bunch of "family at Disneyland" images. Not professional or press photos

Major, have you seen the 1962 Wonderful World of Color show "The Golden Horseshoe Revue"? It's got most of Wally's act in it. As an added bonus it also features the beautiful Annette.

I have seen some of it, but never the show in its entirety.
