Cheyenne Mountain Dancers - Star by the Right

Title

Cheyenne Mountain Dancers - Star by the Right

Subject

Traditional Western (pre-1940); Transitional/Western 1940s

Description

First in a series of three silent films made to accompany Shaw's 1947 recordings with the "Duel in the Sun" Orchestra. Working from an incomplete copy of the footage, we have attempted to create an approximate synchronization of video to audio. As far as we know, these are the only moving images of the Cheyenne Mountain Dancers doing complete squares.

More information about the recordings, the figures in this dance, and their location in Shaw's Cowboy Dances book
