It was a great opportunity to meet Ty Miller's father. I met him at his office in California after a few phone conversations and he showed me Ty's costume which also belonged to John Wayne's son in a movie. Over the years the leather has become quite stiff and there area few rips and tears from wear and age. Still, amazing!
Then came the rescue mission at his house. Prior flood damage had fixed pictures together and we spent hours submerging them in the sink until we could pry them apart.
The family visited Ty on set a number of times, including "Bad Blood"
Yep, that's Lou's siblings at the table with Ty when the birthday cake was brought out...
and "The Littlest Cowboy"
The above line-drawn picture is one that was made for Mr. Miller by a wonderful Western artist. It's of Ty and 'Katy'/Duke
