ALLAN LANE WAS A COWBOY SUPERHERO IN THE 1940s

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY   2012

Millions of children envied Bobby Blake, the boy actor who played "Little Beaver" in Allan Lane's "Red Ryder" films.

The terrific thing about Allan Lane is that he could fight a villain in a film, and never get his Nudie cowboy shirt wrinkled -- let alone dirty or bloody. Santa Fe Uprising starred other Valley-based actors such as Bobby Blake, Martha Wentworth and Barton McLane. Allan Lane died in Woodland Hills.
