Vintage Frontierland Friday

This vintage 1957 shot shows Black Bart, flirting with a guest at Disneyland. In the background is Eddie Adamek who sold trick ropes out of the Blacksmith shop. Actor/comedian/writer Steve Martin learned to trick rope from Eddie when he worked at the park back in the 1950’s; this came in handy 30 years later for his 1986 movie, “The Three Amigos.”

At about the 52 second mark in this video you can see Eddie doing his stuff!
