AND AS I SAID BEFORE I GOT KILLED 7 TIMES IN THIS FILM !!!!!!!
I WOULD SAY THAT "BROKEN ARROW" WAS MY FAVORITE BECAUSE AS 19 YEAR OLD KID JUST BEFORE I WENT INTO THE U,S. AIR FORCE, I WAS A EXTRA IN THE FILM THAT WAS DONE IN SEDONA, ARIZONA, AND I ALSO DID SOME STUNT WORK ! I GOT KILLED 7 TIMES IN THE FILM !!!

Keith, I do not know if I have put this Story up or not on the Great Actor Jimmy Stewart.
In the Late 1940s before I went into the U.S.A.F. just before the Korean War, I had been doing work as a Extra in the Many Western Films that were done in Sedona, Arizona at that time.
The Film "Broken Arrow" with Jimmy Stewart as the Star was done in Sedona. I was lucky to be Hired on as a Extra and Played Many parts in the Film. We got $20 Dollars a Day and Board and Room. This was Big Money for a Young Kid of 19 Years old in those Days.
Jimmy Stewart was a Perfect Gentleman just as you see him in His Films.
After His Passing I was contacted by His Wife Gloria in the early 1990s after She had found out that I had Pictures of Jimmy that were taken in the Late 1940s. when "Broken Arrow" was Filmed in Sedona that had not been seen by the Public Before, so I sent Copys to Her.
Who could ever Forget Jimmy Stewart in "The Man That Shot Liberty Valance" and the Last Scene in "The Shootist" as He looks Down at J.B. Books Dead on the Floor of the Saloon.
I had forgotten about Wallace, Edward and Lindbergh. When I was Flying for the Hearst I was told that William R. Hearst Sr. Ran with Lindbergh and W.R. Hearst tried to Run for President but did not make it.
