Allan "Rocky" Lane — a terrific cowboy actor and an Iverson Movie Ranch mainstay
A new blog post by Jerry England — longtime Iverson researcher and an expert on all things cowboy — spotlights one my favorite B-movie cowboy stars, Allan "Rocky" Lane, seen above with Black Jack.
Check out Jerry's tribute to Rocky here — Jerry has posted a bunch of great movie stills showing the actor in his element at Iverson. Also check out any Rocky Lane movies you might happen to find — he was easily one of the most natural and believable of the cowboy heroes. It helped that Rocky was a big guy, so when he beat people up, it seemed real. It was an advantage that Roy Rogers and Gene Autry never had — although that didn't keep them from beating up everyone too.
