Howdy Manco!!

Ray "Crash" Corrigan was a b-movie actor in the 30's, who purchased a piece of land and built an old western town on it, that was used in the Cisco Kid, Have Gun Will Travel, Kit Carson and many other t.v. westerns. It was called Corriganville. Bobe Hope bought it back it in the 60.s.

I 1st saw Vic Morrow in Blackboard Jungle, with Glenn Ford, I think, back in 1955. He played a rebellious teenager with a switchblade. He then moved on to the t.v. series Combat, as Sgt Chip Saunders and later guest starred on many of the ole 60's and 70's t.v. series. 2 of his most memorable performances, were as the cop in Dirty Mary And Crazy Larry and again as a bad Sheriff in The California Kid with Martin Sheen. He died with two children on the set of Twilight Zone, The Movie, in a helicopter accident.

Andrew Prine 1st appeared in the t.v. series Wide Country with Earl Holliman. It was about a rodeo rider and his younger brother and was in direct competition with Stoney Burke with Jack Lord. He has appeared with John Wayne in Chisum, Jimmy Stewart and Dean Martin in Bandelero along with many others and has had a prolific career in t.v. guest appearances.

I've never seen Combat, but I've seen Vic Morrow in so several movies and TV shows. I remember him most as the overseer Ames in Roots, and as Roy Turner, the harda$$ coach of the Ynkees in The Bad News Bears.

Ray "Crash" Corrigan did B movies and serials in different genres. Some of the movies and TV shows filmed at Corriganville include Fort Apache, The Lone Ranger, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, and Have Gun Will Travel.

I've seen Andrew Prine in lots of stuff, but remember him best from the miniseries V and it's sequel V: The Final Battle. He played Steven, one of the alien visitors that appeared human, but were actually lizards in disguise.

I visited Corriganville when it was called Hope Town. AsChain Lightning stated it was owned by Bob Hope at that time. Later when the place was really falling apart they would have moto-cross races through the canyons and on the old stagecoach roads. Steve McQueen was among the racers several times. Only a few foundations remain today as it has been turned into a housing development.

Vic Morrow I'll always remembered for Combat and his horrific death.

Andrew Prine I remember best as Alexander McSween in Chisum.
