BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY
During the 1940s and '50s, one of the most popular movie stars was the cowboy hero Johnny Mack Brown. Hardly a week passed when there wasn't a film or cliff hanger movie that was released that didn't feature him. Johnny was often seen riding at one of the San Fernando Valley's horse ranches or at the Pickwick Stables in Burbank. The Universal star die in 1974 in Woodland Hills and is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale.
