      Spangler Arlington Brugh


      ~ aka ~


      Robert Taylor
      1911 ~ 1969


      A bit of trivia ~ As a young 27 year old in March, 1962 I had the rare opportunity to begin working part-time for this extraordinary man on his 112 acre Mandeville Canyon horse "ranch" in Los Angeles. He was an excellent rider and genuinely loved horses. Among other things such as being a wonderful husband and father and raising chickens, dogs and a small orphaned deer ~ he also bred and raised quarter horses for many years at this location. And what initially began for me as just a temporary part time "caretaker/ranch hand" job ~ eventually turned into an unforgettable and extremely rewarding 7 year association with one of the finest and most "gentle" of men I had ever known.


      His estate, still referred to even to this day as the "Taylor Ranch" was finally sold at auction last December, 2012 ~ Below is a link to a number of recent photographs taken of the property just a few months before it was sold. The "tennis court" shown in the photos was once just a large fenced in dirt exercise yard for his prized stallion named ~ "Show Bars". Many other so called modern day "improvements" had been made over the ensuing years after his death and all of which, I know, that Mr. "T" would most definately never have approved of were he still alive. At least for the 7 years that I worked there ~ it was definately a "working" quarter horse ranch. We had 21 geldings, 3 mares, 2 colts, one stallion (Show Bars) and a pony named "Two-Bits" that belonged to his youngest daughter Tessa. Mr. T's personal horse was named "Tommy" and Mrs. T's horse was named "Bobby". Simple and unpretentious for two very extraordinay and famous people.




      A few weeks after Robert Taylor's burial in June 1969, Bob's full time ranch foreman and I trailered Show Bars north to his best friend Ronald Reagan's 'small ranch' in Santa Barbara, California. Governor Reagan had delivered the eulogy at Bob's funeral and there wasn't a dry eye amongst any of the mourners who were there that day to say their final goodbye to this once very famous and beloved American actor. I sat next to Don "Red" Barry ~ a well known "heavy" in early western films and he sobbed almost uncontrollably to the point where I put my arm around his shoulder and I too silently cried along with him.

      These kinds of old memories ~ one never forgets.

      It is one thing to manipulate movie stills and call it "restoration", it is another thing entirely to manipulate existing copyrighted art work and put your name on it. While I have enjoyed your photo to art postings...as an artist myself I cannot help but be put off by you putting your name on Rick Timmons work....

      Thank you for your concern regarding this.
      We at the JWMB are always aware of copyright,
      and always strive, if possible to name the source of our
      information.

      It is an issue that Sterling Price will need to address,
      and of course if any complaints of copyright infringement are received.
      we will have no alternative but to delete any offending images.

      Both valid points which I hadn't even considered before. The Net is abolutely flooded with tens of millions of random images such as this and most of which the original artist/contributor is not even cited. Had I known about Mr. Timmons's web site and the body of original work he's created, I would never have included my own "interpretation" and posted it on here and for that I do apologize.

      I will gladly remove this post and any other of my "restoration" posts that JWMB decides is not appropriate. Also, no "credit name" at all will appear on any future postings of mine

      This is a wonderful web site and I certainly don't want to "muck" it up. Thanks once again to both of you for the heads-up.

      Thank you for your reply.
      We would also point out, that we are not suggesting you remove the images already posted,
      but rather you credit the work, if known,to the original artist/ photogapher.

      I agree that we all use images from the 'net', but we are not editing them, and then claiming the work.

      I think we just need to to clarify this in order to avoid any complaints or copyright issues.

      Thank you for you support and effforts, and hope that you continue to be a valued member of this forum

      Why does someone always have to ruin it for everyone? I mean, SP isnt trying to make money off this even though he really could--copyright or no copyright and I can tell you how he could and NOT get sued for it. All he has to do if he wished--is to sell these in frames as framed art--selling the frames and NOT the art in said frames.

      And no-not for one second did I see anywhere where Sterling Price is claiming everything with in--to be ONLY his ideas and creations.

      Also, im NOT bashing someone--but I hate it when somehting seemingly has to be PC!!!!!!!!!

      Please read my two posts--I know they are after yours but--I did explain somehting I recently learned that will spare SP from anything negative as well as this site.

      I get so damned tired of someone making a weak complaint on something even though Sterling Price is not in any way, shape or form, trying to steal from anything copyrighted and also, if he chose to sell his stiff in frames? all he would have to do to avoid any legalities on copyrighted stuff--is sell it as frames with the art in the frames--not selling the art itself. ;-))

      My issue with it was that it was out of line and cowardly.

      It SHOULD have been done PRIVATELY between the person having the "issue," and Sterling Price.

      If private contact was made and no proper resolution occured...THEN go to an administrator.

      To do it publicly is to show one's true nature - that of a petulant trouble maker.

      Same here and I fully agree. If he did that on one of the sites I moderate on--he would be spending time in: The Cooler (Siberia) etc.
