Mickey Free's Fight With Doroteo Arango

January 18, 2011

The "True West Girls" Allison Cabral and Sheri Riley created quite a buzz at the WESA convention in Denver last weekend. Pics to follow.

Meanwhile, here are two more scenes from the next Graphic Cinema sequence, "When mammoth Jacks Attack":

This is Doroteo Arango, leader of the Sonoran banditos who attacked Mickey Free south of Fronteras. A huge battle erupted, led by Mickey Free's aggressive jack.

Yes, the dust swirled and the braying, oh, the braying, could be heard by big horn sheep on the highest ridges, miles away.

As someone I am related to once said, "He was louder than a jackass makin' love in a tin shed."

Yes, this was someone on my mother's side of the family. And yes, they were from the Big Sandy, and proud of it.

Meghan was rather startled yesterday to discover that the latest episode of Mickey Free was not based on an actual historical event. I told her it was "based on true events," which is the latest Hollywood film hedge, or, catch-all phrase. Which reminds me of this saying:

"Imagined history can be more persuasive than fact."
