This is a non-profit, non-commercial fan site, with nothing for sale and no profit in mind. The Old Corral is NOT an online business or store. We don't sell videos, DVDs, audio tapes, CDs, posters, lobby cards or photos. There are no companies who sponsor or underwrite the Old Corral. And there are no banner advertisements, link exchange ads, pop-ups, pop-unders, nor are we part of any money-making 'associates' or 'referral' programs with click-thru icons and banners that take you to other websites to purchase books, CDs, videos, etc. In other words, no remuneration of any kind is received in connection with the operation of this site. Ye Old Corral webmaster pays for everything, including the domain name registration and the website hosting/web server. That's my treat and I consider it a worthwhile expenditure in order to keep the B-western memories alive.
The text and graphics on the Old Corral are for your personal, non-commercial use only.

The Old Corral website is a research project in progress and is dedicated to those wonderful cowboy heroes, heroines, sidekicks, heavies, and supporting players that rode the silver screen from the 1930s through the early 1950s in B westerns and cowboy cliffhangers. My goal is to simply rekindle memories of those great silver screen adventures, and to provide information, critique and education on the actors, actresses and films of the genre. As the Old Corral has expanded, it has been recognized as a comprehensive history and ongoing study of the B western, the western film performers, and the production companies and personnel.
The website design, as well as much of the notes and written material are ©1998-2021 by Chuck Anderson. Some written material and personal/family photos are copyrighted/owned by others, including guest authors, commentators and relatives of B-western performers and production people, and that information is denoted on a specific webpage, section, photo or image.

Every attempt has been made to ensure the information on the Old Corral is correct. In some cases, references are made to books, articles, interviews, etc. And we do our best to identify conjecture and opinion vs. truth and history. But research is imperfect, and I realize that errors can and will occur. We are always open to corrections and updates.

This site is not intended to infringe on the copyrights or trademarks of any individual, company, trust, or corporation. Pictures, movie artwork/advertisements and collectibles which are displayed are typical of what is advertised, sold and traded by collectors, auction houses, and other businesses that sell posters, lobby cards, pictures and cinema memorabilia. And the sale of this western movie ad/artwork and images has been going on for decades. The ad/artwork and pictures on this website are from the collections of myself and many contributors, including friends and relatives of western film performers and production people. Much of this movie ad/artwork and photos are from "Poverty Row" and B film production companies that disappeared a half century ago or earlier. When originally released, this material was considered as disposable publicity and advertising, and was distributed to theaters, newspapers, trade publications and movie reviewers, and was also freely given away to fan clubs and fans as well as to the production personnel and performers involved in the making of these old B-westerns and serials. My use on the Old Corral is consistent with that purpose. Much of the material on this site is assumed to be public domain or allowed by the fair use provisions of the copyright law. Any misuse of materials is unintentional and will be promptly removed upon notification.
