Episode 66: The Taking of Luke McVane (1915)

Bill and E.J. showcase another film by the “Father of all movie Cowboys”, our own William S. Hart! This movie also features his pinto pony, “Fritz” who Hart claimed often received more fan mail than did Hart! Although Bill and E.J. poke fun at Mercedes – The Belle of the Chuckawalla Valley, Enid Markey who played Mercedes actually did have a claim to movie fame: she played Jane in the first ever Tarzan movie.


E.J. Stephens

E.J. Stephens spends his days as an archivist/historian for a movie studio and his nights as a caped vigilante.Early Warner Bros. Book

When not fighting evil-doers with derring-do and aplomb, E.J. writes Hollywood history books (which nobody reads), leads tours (which nobody goes on), and co-hosts “SCV in the Movies,” (which nobody watches). E.J. is also on the board of directors of the Friends of Hart Park (but he never attends the meetings).

He and Kimi, his wife, best friend, and co-conspirator, live in Newhall.
