TOMBSTONE FILMThis 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!
~ ~ 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.
~ ~ 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!
~ ~ 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.

#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

~ ~ 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.

~ ~ 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.
