      I did email the current owners of the Indian Lodge Motel, to see if they have any information about Walter Brennan's ownership of it in years past.

      A class act, interesting that gas exposure changed his voice and became part of his characters personna. Too bad the owners of that Motel in Oregon don't feel inclined to talk more. You would think with a little effert they could work things so the association with such a well liked actor would be good for business.

      It was REALLY a shock to see him as the river pirate in How The West was Won. At that time I only knew him mainly from Rio Bravo & his TV series The Real McCoys.

      Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's the case.

      ..and from our Mini-Biography-2, on our opening profile.
      He even had a hit record in later years, the spoken/sung "Old Rivers," which led to several albums of similar material.

      and Trivia
      Had four top 100 singles, including the Top 5 hit "Old Rivers" (Liberty Records) which first charted on April 7, 1962. The single spent 11 weeks on the Billboard charts and peaked at number 5.
