Before he was Doctor McCoy, DeForest Kelley was a cowboy. On this Hitchin' Post episode, Michael visits with author Kristine M Smith whose freelance writing career was launched by Kelley in 1969. It was De and his wife Carolyn who encouraged Kris to pursue a career Hollywood, which she did from 1989 to 2003, primarily at Warner Bros.
Kris also served as Kelley’s personal assistant and caregiver during the final months of his life and presented heartfelt sentiments about her mentor at Paramount Studios' memorial service for him in 1999. She has written two books about him: DeForest Kelley Up Close and Personal, A Harvest of Memories from the Fan Who Knew Him Best (2016) and The Enduring Legacy of DeForest Kelley: Actor, Healer, Friend. Both books are available at YellowBalloonPublications.com.
Yellow Balloon Publications' website also contains access to an extensive list of Kelley’s film and TV Westerns with links to information about each one and additional links to snippets of his performances.
Also be sure to visit your local newsstand for the November-December issue of Cowboys & Indians Magazine - available now as this episode is being released - featuring an article by Kris focusing on Kelley's Westerns.

Pax and Michael are joined again by Michael DiGiovanni and Andrew Bloom of the Classic Film Jerks podcast. One of our favorite parts of their show is when they re-cast older movies with modern actors, so we all did that with 1988's Young Guns, each of us picking new actors to play the six main characters and maybe a side character or three.
