Cowboy star Prine to walk the ‘Walk’

first_imgNEWHALL – Lanky cowboy star Andrew Prine became the fourth and final honoree for the 2006 Walk of Western Stars. Prine, who played cowboy Andy Guthrie in the 1960s television series “The Wide Country” and acted in other series and movies, will join James Arness, Rhonda Fleming and Robert Horton in ceremonies April 28, receiving a bronze saddle along San Fernando Road in downtown Newhall. In a common bond with his fellow nominees, Prine was a guest star in Arness’ show “Gunsmoke” and joined Horton in an episode of “Wagon Train.” He also worked on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” as well as films such as “Chisum” with John Wayne and “Bandolero.” The Walk of Western Stars honors film, stage, television and radio performers who worked in the Santa Clarita Valley, many of them at the Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio at which the City of Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival is based.
