A Dream Came True
how, as a young woman, Leida Cadíz overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles when surrounded with the love and support of a black family at a time when racism was rampant.
It was through their love, faith and nurturing that her artistic talent would come to light and change the hearts of many, while taking her to a place of social prominence. Her unintended fame and fortune, however, came with a cost that would lead to her becoming embroiled in international intrigue and consequently the target of an assassination conspiracy. Faced with the certainty of death, she must find a way to slip into obscurity. It would not be until the year 1954 that the totality of her life would be fully revealed.
Bravo Too Much
This historically accurate story celebrates the life and times of Texas Ranger Captain Jack Coffee Hays. In 1843, Hays and 36 valiant Texas Rangers introduced, for the first time in warfare, Colt Paterson five shot revolvers. In their 84 combative encounters against overwhelming numbers of Comanche warriors, Hays and his Ranger Company never suffered a defeat. Then in 1847, when war with Mexico broke out, Hays and his Rangers volunteered to become the First Mounted Regiment leading to the defeat of Santa Anna and his army once and for all. Jack Hays’ fame quickly spread across the nation in dime novels and newspaper accounts as history recorded him as the quintessential western hero of all time! Then in 1849, news reached San Antonio that gold had been discovered in California! The temptation for new found riches was more than even Jack Hays could ignore, or was it his need for more adventure? His fame preceded him and, upon his arrival in San Francisco, he was unanimously elected Sheriff of San Francisco. A year later, he would find himself engaged in the largest single Indian battle of his fabled career as he, along with John C. Fremont, led 300 volunteers up against 3,000 Indian renegades at Lake Tahoe, Nevada. As always, Jack Coffee Hays prevailed!
Gold Still Flowing
A modern day gold rush story of two men born a hundred and seventy years too late. Big Jim Walker and Travis York are throwbacks to another era and are descendants of their very namesakes and two of the founders of Prosperity. Big Jim Walker is the Judge of “Prosperity” and Travis is the Town Marshall. In its heyday, Prosperity was a rip roaring mining community overflowing with Argonauts from all corners of the world in search of “striking it rich!” Sadly, just as fast as the gold was discovered in 1849, it “pinched out in 1852!” Today Prosperity is on the verge of dying out altogether due to high unemployment and an almost non- existent economy, unless our two heroes can locate the lost Bonanza Mine. They devise a plan that will ignite a modern day rush for gold to spur their economy! Not all the newcomers to their beloved town are law abiding folks, with the exception Patrice Carlisle, a beautiful opera star from San Francisco who quickly captures the heart of Travis York. A dilemma presents itself as a consequence of their manufactured modern day gold rush, as the very town Walker and York love just may be destroyed altogether as a result! Comedy, romance and nostalgia abound in this light hearted comedic drama.
Pancho & Lefty
A legendary song written by a legendary song writer, Townes Van Zandt, performed by the legendary singers Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, about two legendary folk heroes, Pancho & Lefty, beckons for the movie to be made. Great care has been taken in the writing of the screenplay to follow the lyrics of the song to the letter. Pancho was a bandit’s boy and Lefty was the son of a Texas Ranger, two young men of opposite values unite in a quest to right a terrible wrong done to them at the turn of the century at the hands of Federale Captain Juan Garcia. For years they find themselves living in exodus from the past being hunted unjustly by the Texas Rangers as well as the Federales south of the border. “All the federales say, they could have had them any day, they only let them go out of kindness I suppose.” In the finality of their days, one would give his life to save the other and one would flee into obscurity to Cleveland, Ohio, to search for Maria the woman he loved and lost many years before. “So the story goes”…some say “they were legends in their time”…some say…”just banditos past their prime”…”but even legends sometimes die!”
