Publisher's Description

BY MICHAEL BALES AND ANN TERRY HILL Introductions by Roberta Conner and William F. Willingham Edited by Karen Kirtley Directed by Stephen Aldrich Forrester of the East Oregonian Publishing Company In the early 1920s, movies and the Round-Up forged a symbiotic bond. The Round-Up provided movie-makers with a ready-made set filled with unscripted action and a large cast of colorful characters. Added attractions were Umatilla County’s wealth of sunny days and its countryside of illuminated wheat fields, forests, and mountains. In return, the movies provided the Round-Up with a powerful tool for promoting itself nationwide.
