Stormy PetreF Staff 

The Old West leaves the television screen late show and 
returns to the silver screen which it inhabited for many years. 

Buster Badlands, presented by the Oglethorpe Players 
May 13 and 14, includes most of the stock traditions begun 
by the "Great Stage Robbery" many years ago. Bad men 
fight in the streets, Indians attack, and pretty girls are 
menaced. 

To go along with these antiquated events, the student 
authors of this work have added such modern bits as a 
pacifist sheriff, but he still gets his man. 

The basic plot revolves around the discovery of gold on 
Indian land by that intrepid miner, Cooter Cudahy, played 
by Nate Zahn. Plotting to steal this gold over some Redeye 
in Blossom Seedy's saloon (Blossom is played by Mina 
Meines) are those two neferious villians Buster Badlands, 
or alumnus Phil Leftwich, and the educated Indian Grease- 
belly. Filling out this part is Richard Laurence Baron. 

Crystal LaRoue, the delectable saloon girl played by 
Carole Moore, discovers the plot and is kidnapped. To her 
rescue rides that fearless no-gun sheriff, Gunther Dodgem, 
portrayed by Bob Hamrick. 

The major location for this thriller was the old west town 
at Lake Spivey. Except for the electric lights, loudspeakers, 
and fans, this is an extremely authentic site and well suited 
to the making of a movie during the off season. 

Much thanks must go to the owners for their permission 
and assistance in using this local bit of history. 

There is, of course, more to the plot than the outline 
above indicates, and several subplots as well. These natural- 
ly, can only be revealed at the showing of the movie itself.
