While the theme of this blog is conversing on movie trivia from the top 101 films of the 20th Century as listed by Kinn & Piazza, some fun asides will accompany it. This is one for 20th Century Western films buffs.
TV and radio in the 20th Century also sprouted cowboy heroes with their faithful equine companions. It would be remiss not to include those here, too. Toys and products promoted from these family friendly stars and steeds appealed to several generations of kids and remain part of our Western heritage.
Here are the cowboys and cowgirls:
(A) Hopalong Cassidy, (B) Dale Evans, (C) Cisco Kid, (D) Tom Mix, (E) The Lone Ranger, (F) Roy Rogers, (G) Gene Autry, (H) Tonto, (I) Marshal Matt Dillon, (J) Red Ryder, (K) Pancho, (L) Annie Oakley
Now match them up with their horses:
(1) Champion, (2) Diablo, (3) Tony the Wonder Horse, (4) Thunder, (5) Buttermilk, (6) Loco, (7) Trigger, (8) Silver, (9) Buck, (10) Topper, (11) Target, (12) Scout
(A)=10; (B)=5; (C)=2; (D)=3; (E)=8; (F)=7; (G)=1; (H)=12; (I)=9; (J)=4; (K)=6; (L)=11
