Above is the pressbook cover from LURE OF THE WASTELAND (Al Lane Pictures, 1939) which starred Grant Withers. Withers is on horseback, and he and Le Roy Mason are shown in the left corner inset. "Al Lane" was another of Bob Tansey's aliases.




(From Old Corral image collection)

Robert Emmett Tansey produced and directed this 1941 Tom Keene oater for Monogram under his 'Robert Emmett' and 'Robert Tansey' name variations ... and Tansey and Frances Kavanaugh collaborated on the story.  Keene is wrestling a Winchester away from Rocky Camron (Gene Alsace), and Camron was a frequent player in films crafted by Robert Tansey.  Stuntwoman and great rider Betty Miles is shown in the bottom right corner of this lobby card.

Above from left to right are Sarah Padden, Emmett Lynn, Eddie Dean, Jennifer Holt and Al LaRue in his days before becoming 'Lash' in this 1945 PRC Cinecolor oater.  This was Dean's first starring western.  Note the "produced and directed by Robert Emmett" at the bottom center of this lobby card.
