This month our main topic is the film "Tombstone" which came out in 1993. If you haven't yet heard, on June 30 & July 1, the Movie's 25th Anniversary Reunion Celebration will take place in town. It's going to be an "epic" event! More on that below.

The other thing we need to talk about is something that's affecting just about all websites - whether they realize it or not. Eventually they will! It's called GDPR & we want to get that out of the way first.

Justice - On Its Way!

#1 - GDPR & Privacy Policy Update

~ ~ The European Union (EU) introduced a new regulation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It was effective May 25, 2018. We've been making sure we are compliant. I think we were all along, but we had to do some updates to be more transparent.

~ ~ We conform to the requirements per any personal data we collect & we have an updated Privacy Policy. GDPR regulation requires companies to be transparent about their collection of personally identifiable information. A first requirement is always that a site is secure, as well.

~ ~ Websites must notify users about their cookies, for anyone who is under EU laws – no matter WHERE they may view a website. In effect - that's nearly every site on the web. For sure every public site.

~ ~ Cookies carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next. Most browsers have a way to allow a user to view cookies stored on the computer & delete them if they wish.

~ ~ So a cookie helps a website keep track of your visits & activity. This isn’t normally a bad thing. For an example: cookies are used to track items in an online shopping cart as you explore a site. Without cookies, your shopping cart would reset to zero every time you clicked a new link on the site. That would make it difficult to make online purchases!

~ ~ Websites might also use cookies to remember your most recent visit, or record your login. Many think this useful to store log-ins for commonly used sites, or so they know what they've visited or downloaded in the past.

~ ~ We're committed to protecting the data & privacy of all our users. We believe in open, transparent communication. As part of our commitment to providing you the best possible service, we've updated our Privacy Policy in the manner that the GDPR regulation requires. Please review our updated Privacy Policy by Clicking Here>

~ ~ We also want to remind you that we appreciate your subscription to Tombstone Tips monthly newsletter & hope you enjoy it. We are open to your feedback at any time. You are free to unsubscribe if you feel it does not meet your needs any further. To do this, click the unsubscribe link you'll find near the bottom of this newsletter. Thank you.

#2 - Presenters/Organizers

~ ~ The Tombstone Lion's Club hosts the 25th Anniversary/Reunion. Takes place in the town of Tombstone AZ on Saturday June 30th & Sunday July 1st.

The other is Gordon Anderson, who owns the Larian Motel - a great place to stay on Fremont St. He's been organizing & gathering financial support.

#3 - Interview About Movie Buckaroo Jerry Crandall

~ ~ Karen} Hello Judy, I understand you're Jerry's publicist & of course his wife! I think you both used to live in Arizona?

~ ~ Judy} Yes, we lived in Sedona Arizona for over 15 years in the 1980s & 1990s. Jerry was a Buckaroo for the Tombstone movie, but he's also a traditional Western Artist. When in Sedona, he participated in art shows, galleries & had several private commissions. Jerry's been painting his beloved West for over 50 years.

~ ~ Karen} So you've now moved to Montana & have your business there?

~ ~ Judy} Yes. In 1997 we moved to the Hamilton Montana area. There we're able to continue studying the old West, its history. Our Company Eagle Editions Ltd. is located near the awe-inspiring Bitterroot mountains in the Western part of the state.

~ ~ Karen} I understand you're a bit into the arts too?

~ ~ Judy} Well I've been a director for several galleries & have penned quite a few publication articles about artists, history & collecting, plus a book "Cowgirls" - in its 2nd Edition. It's published by Schiffer Publishing in Pennsylvania

#4 - Jerry's Movie Career

~ ~ Karen} How did Jerry get into the film industry?

~ ~ Judy} Jerry was born in La Junta, Colorado, near Bent’s Fort on the Santa Fe Trail. He grew up with this Western interest. He began collecting artifacts, period photos, clothing, holsters, saddles, etc. As an avid collector, he also became an intense historian.

~ ~ Karen} That really did take passion for the subject!

~ ~ Judy} Yes, & because of his expertise on the American West, he served as Historical Consultant for early segments of the TV series “Centennial” & for the Charlton Heston Movie, “The Mountain Men.” He's served as actor & consultant for various shows on the A&E Network, Discovery & The History Channel. Articles about Jerry have appeared in Southwest Art, Art Voices South, True West, Cowboys & Indians, Man at Arms, Prints, Air Classics Distinctly Montana & many more.

#5 - Jerry in 1993's Tombstone

~ ~ Karen} What's the story on Jerry's appearance in the film Tombstone?

~ ~ Judy} Jerry was given the role as "Cowboy Number 2" or the 2nd Cowboy in the script. But he also does some stunt work & his own stunts. He was working as cowboy #2 on the second unit with Terry Leonard stunt Coordinator, & director of the second unit when Jerry did his stunt falling off his horse, Apache. He broke his shoulder! So he couldn't continue as that cowboy.

~ ~ Judy} Unfortunately, Jerry couldn't stay on at all after he broke his shoulder. He came home to re-cover.

~ ~ Karen} That's too bad! About that accident. But, he sure has diverse talents!

~ ~ Judy} Yes, in fact he was also an uncredited stunt actor on Tombstone. He is a SAG member - the Screen Actors Guild.

I hear quite a few are now sold out & getting collector secondary market prices. Judy, I appreciate you speaking with me today.

~ ~ Judy} Thanks so much for letting your readers have a glimpse of Jerry's work!

By the Artist Jerry Crandall ©

~ ~ We were happy to get to speak with Judy Crandall. You'll notice Jerry's style combines a union between historical authenticity & fine art. Working as a professional artist for over 50 years, he enjoys painting in a more traditional realistic style.

~ ~ He's listed in Who’s Who in American Art, Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in America, Contemporary Western Artists, among others. He's a member of American Mountain Men.

We hope we'll see you in town, getting to our events & activities. Let us know if you'll be going to the 25th Anniversary! Tell us how you like Jerry's art.

Wyatt Earp Days 2018

~ ~ Over Memorial Day, it was a pretty warm one, the temps around 97 by afternoon. But it didn't keep people away! Sunday was maybe one of the largest Wyatt Earp Days crowds ever!! Everyone roamed uptown enjoying all the action.

The Other Trolley: Back On

~ ~ Our friend Tombstone Johnny (check out his great FB page Here>) rode it on Friday, the day before opening. They were taking feedback on the tour route. They went just about everywhere! A bit long, he thought. From what he said, we agree. We'll have to see what they ended up with - we'll let you know!

Tombstone Mustachery Reinvented!

~ ~ The Mustachery has now reopened & moved across the street from the O.K. Corral. Not only that - there's big plans in the works there! If you've ever stopped in before, it was a unique little place. Now it's much bigger - with many more options.

~ ~ The Barber, who also can set up your mustache just right, is there at every special Tombstone event! Besides that - he'll be there once a month. We'll have more details on that upcoming.

~ ~ Kevin Rudd owns this much larger building, & has lots of developing plans for it. So keep watch! But one thing that's happening right now - is at the opposite end from the Mustachery.

~ ~ Kevin's wife, Sherry, has opened the Tombstone Desert Garden. A super idea! All kinds of unique things going on there. Stop in & see for yourself. She's only just begun.
