I worked with Dale Robertson back when he formed the theatrical distribution company United Screen Arts (USA), run by Harry Kopelan.
One of the films The Man From Button Willow, which I recall being animated, was produced by Dale. Another film A Swinging Summer with Raquel Welsh doing the twist at Lake Arrowhead before she became a movie star. And another film starred Tom Laughlin who delivered the 35mm film elements to me in his horse trailer.
And so it goes, all things must end. RIP
