EDDIE MOORE REMEMBERS SUNSET CARSON

Special thanks to Eddie Moore for sharing these photos and remembrances. Above are Eddie and Sunset Carson circa 1977-1978.


Eddie writes:

"My father, Howard Moore, was in radio for most of his life. He was a great fan of B-Westerns and got to know many of the stars through the convention circuit. I don't think he ever missed one while he was alive. My father and Sunset became close friends during the time Sunset was performing his sharp shooting show at Ghost Town in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. We lived in Sumter, South Carolina and Sunset was around at least once a year.

It was a sad time when word reached us of his death - just days after my father died. Nether knew the other had passed away."

Above is a Polaroid photo of Howard Moore and wife Betty with Sunset at the Moore home in Sumter, South Carolina circa mid 1980s. Eddie mentioned that Sunset often stayed at their home while he was working on the "Six-Gun Heroes" PBS TV series in the early-mid 1980s.

Eddie writes: "I've been thinking hard about the time period of the above photo and I think it's from 1989. After the "Six Gun Heroes" series, I believe Sunset was working on a series of video releases of some of his movies and was working on the introductions. He had been working hard at acquiring the rights back from ETV. He was using a facility near the University of South Carolina for editing. "
