In 1947 Columbia released Charles Starrett’s “Stranger from Ponca City”. This photo was taken when Starrett and others appeared in Ponca City, Oklahoma, for the screening of the film at the old Center Theatre. (L-R) Unknown, Starrett, leading lady Virginia Hunter and Roscoe Ates. It’s odd Ates was there as he has no role in the film and wasn’t really associated with Columbia Pictures. However, Smiley Burnette was there for the film but is not in this photo. Each of the four above are holding a scale model of the very famous Pioneer Woman statue which is in Ponca City. (www.okhistory.org/sites/pioneerwoman.php) Recently (10/18/15), I was in Ponca City, attended and spoke briefly before a special screening of “Stranger from Ponca City” at the Poncan Theatre along with Oklahoma Balladeer Les Gilliam and old friend Grant Hodges.
