"Live" At The Golden Horseshoe
The Golden Horseshoe was once the entertainment highlight of Disneyland. This April 1960 image shows you how the saloon looked shortly after the Park opened. Zooming in, it would appear that one of the musicians is about to mosey on in.
Before digital, interior shots at Disneyland were very difficult to achieve; either they came out extra dark or if you used a flash, they would typically wash out entire areas of the image. Not very pretty. With the bright stage lighting of the Revue, these July 1962 gems are a collector's dream. The Can-Can Girls start the show off with a "wow."
The lovely Betty Taylor literally glows in this image.
Let's get a better look at Betty, shall we?
Wally Boag is center stage in this one;
Poor Betty seems to be laughing at his antics and leans against the curtain for support.
The trio of Boag, Taylor, and Fulton Burley face the audience, with the Can-Can Girls giving it their all in the background.
A trio of Disneyland Legends.
Will the 'shoe ever be able to live up to this standard again? See more Golden Horseshoe photos at my main website.
