Smith Ballew Films includes Lou Gehrig


Allen Public Library

Smith Ballew Films  

After departing the music industry, Smith Ballew became a singing cowboy. 

Two of Smith Ballew’s films, "Rawhide" and "Hawaiian Buckaroo," will be featured in the library’s auditorium at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18.  Ballew considered these two films among his favorites. 

Rawhide (1938) Starring baseball legend Lou Gehrig and Smith Ballew, this is the only Hollywood film in which Gehrig made a screen appearance, playing himself as a vacationing ballplayer visiting his sister on a ranch in the fictional town of Rawhide, Montana.   Rawhide premiered in March 1938 in St. Petersburg, Florida while the New York Yankees were in town for their annual spring training.    

Hawaiian Buckaroo (1938) Starring Smith Ballew, Evalyn Knapp, Pat O’Brien, George Regas and Benny Burt, combining cowboys and cows amidst Hawaiian scenery and song produces a delightful film.

Call 214-509-4911.
