Who Is Soapy Smith? I Aim To Learn More.
The older I get the more I discover how much more there is to discover! It's that way in the dynamics of life and in the things we do, including hobbies and interests, such as Western histories, Western films, and Western literature. Over the past week or so, I've bumped into the name "Soapy Smith," seemingly everywhere I turn. This morning I stumbled, again, onto this You Tube video, which then led me to snoop the web and find this web site (http://www.soapysmith.net/index.html).
I haven't yet begun to read much, but the real-life character and stories, the little bit that I have explored, have intrigued me, so I'm gonna spend some time, here and there, reading more about Soapy; he seems like a colorful man, and the stories look fun and interesting.
I'm going to buy and then add this Clark Gable flick to my 365-Western-Movies-In-One-Year List, and I've included a link, below, for those that wanna buy one, too. I'll probably write more about Soapy as I discover more about him.
