Growing up, Claude Dallas loved to read and imagine the stories of the West. He soaked in the characters of Louis L’Amour’s books, ventured West with E.H. Staffelbach in Toward Oregon, and met with Indians in The Horsemen of the Plains by Joseph Altsheler, and Merritt Allen’s The White Feather. He could not get enough. With time he added Zane Grey and Jack London novels and repeatedly checked out every book on the West he came across, including two western classics — Owen Wister’s The Virginian and Andy Adam’s The Log of a Cowboy. Someday he hoped to live as these characters did in the West.
Paramount films emphasized stars; in the 1920s there were Swanson, Valentino, and Clara Bow. By the 1930s, talkies brought in a range of powerful new draws: Miriam Hopkins, Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, W.C. Fields, Jeanette MacDonald, Claudette Colbert, the Marx Brothers (whose first two films were shot at Paramount's Astoria, New York, studio), Dorothy Lamour, Carole Lombard, Bing Crosby, band leader Shep Fields, famous Argentine tango singer Carlos Gardel, and Gary Cooper among them. In this period Paramount can truly be described as a movie factory, turning out sixty to seventy pictures a year.
