Sage Sweetwater and The Sundance Wives Iconoclasts of a Bygone Era Reinvented
Gene Autry traveled the Southwest to maintain law and order.
Gene appeared in 93 feature films. Some of his best known movies are based on his hit records, including South of the Border (1939), Mexicali Rose (1939), Back in the Saddle (1941), The Last Round-Up (1947) and Strawberry Roan (1948).
The Sundance Wives have a star writer in Sage Sweetwater. Sage has her film scripts piled up to Cripple Creek, Colorado timberline in Development, Pre--production/production and Distribution with Michael Gunther Director Triboro Pictures and DreamReal Pictures Director Wendy Crouse, based on her lesbian Western novels and poetry. From the Convent to the Rawhide: The Saga of Sadie Cade and Vi Montana (2009), The Sundance Wives: The Gates of Doogun Hill (2010) Dominga Rio of Cuero based on the novel by Sage Sweetwater and Blue Sleighty (2010), Madam Blaze Starr: Whiskey and Sagebrush Truth in Eights and Aces (2010), and Jett Durango (2010--2011).
Western movie fans and film historians have credited Gene Autry with setting the precedent for the popularity of the Western on television.
Lesbian Western fans say The Sundance Wives have made History and have credited Sage Sweetwater with setting the precedent for the popularity of the lesbian Western on the Big Screen, out of the past into the present. Like Gene, The Sundance Wives know how important it is to connect with their fans.
To be able to bring back that Autry era and the time way, way before that in the Leadville, Colorado Silver Boom of 1879 and the Cripple Creek, Colorado 1897 Gold Rush is a dream come true for The Sundance Wives. To know that Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp and Bat Masterson were in Cripple Creek, Colorado is what inspired Celebrity Firebrand Lesbian Novelist Sage Sweetwater to write these historical characters in her script, and Doc Holliday, Mart Duggan and Horace Tabor in Leadville, Colorado for historical accuracy. Sweetwater's film script Jett Durango with Director Wendy Crouse includes the historical characters of Calamity Jane, Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley.
The official publication of the original Gene Autry Fan Club was "Autry's Aces."
Gene Autry had the ability to transcend media. The Sundance Wives do transcend media. Gene Autry was in the sheer scope of his output, unsurpassed as a popular image-maker of the American West.
The Sundance Wives, from all of their intellectual properties are highly popular image-makers of the modern--day American West. Like Gene Autry, The Sundance Wives are friends to millions, and that's thanks to the Internet of Social Media! We're wonderfully happy to be a part of such a Bygone Era Reinvented.
