Smith Ballew Films

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Join us for a showing of two of Smith Ballew's films: Rawhide and Hawaiian Buckaroo.

Rawhide (1938) Starring baseball legend Lou Gehrig and Smith Ballew, this is the only Hollywood film in which Gehrig made a screen appearance, playing himself as a vacationing ballplayer visiting his sister on a ranch in the fictional town of Rawhide, Montana.   Rawhide premiered in March 1938 in St. Petersburg, Florida while the New York Yankees were in town for their annual spring training.    

Hawaiian Buckaroo (1938) Starring Smith Ballew, Evalyn Knapp, Pat O’Brien, George Regas and Benny Burt, combining cowboys and cows amidst Hawaiian scenery and song produces a delightful film.
