Another Black & White series, 1950’s: Pt. 3
Today we board the C.K. Holliday and get dropped off at the Frontierland Depot. Sorry ’bout the blurriness, folks! The rest of this series takes place in Frontierland, so get ready for a taste of the Wild West, 1950’s–style. Shot #2 is a shoot-out, with none other than Black Bart hiding behind Jean LaFitte’s anchor, with Don DeFore’s Silver Banjo Barbecue as the backdrop.
Here’s a closeup of the anchor; unfortunately, it’s a little blurry. The last line is pure Disney: “But don’t believe everything you read.” Anybody know the background on this prop; is it the real thing or just a gag?
Here are some current shots showing the anchor in its present-day location; the new sign looks a little on the cheap as it is printed and not metallic:
