Above in the top row, from L-to-R are B-western heavy/henchman Tex Terry, Pat Starling, William Boyd and Bob Nolan.  Bottom row from L-to-R are Roy Rogers, a mystery lady named "Mrs. Peters", and Spade Cooley. Patricia/Pat Starling did a few westerns, including a Jimmy Wakely and four of Sunset Carson's later films which were NOT at Republic Pictures. This photo is from the 'Western Hall of Fame Hoss Opera' at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles on November 28, 1948. It was organized by Tim Spencer (Sons of the Pioneers) and singer/song writer Cindy Walker ("You Don't Know Me" and more, including nearly all of the Bob Wills songs in the Russ Hayden films).

October, 2011: Joe Hyatte is the owner of the Rock Run Cafe and Bakery in Parke County Indiana (formally owned by movie badman/henchman Tex Terry who called it "Tex's Longhorn Restaurant"). Tex had sold the restaurant to Joe's parents, and the property included a bunch of movie memorabilia as Tex had saved just about everything from movie days. "Mrs. Peters" was Dorothy Peters and she was married to Tex before he married his agent Isabel Drasemer.

Calin Coburn (Bob Nolan's grandson) and Elizabeth Drake McDonald have created a fantastic website on Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers. There's a webpage with all kinds of details, images, and copies of the program and the purpose of the event was a fundraiser to create a Western Hall of Fame museum. That museum didn't happen, nor did they do another 'Hoss Opera' in 1949: http://www.bobnolan-sop.net/Special%20Features/Photo%20of%20the%20Month/2009/05%20May%20-%20Hoss%20Opera.htm
