Guy Weadick: Dean of rodeo producers, Pt. 2

From the pages of Canadian Cattlemen, Sept. 1946

“As related in the first installment of this article in the June issue of Canadian Cattlemen, Guy Weadick and Flores La Due were married in 1906. After this partnership was formed, they presented their fancy roping acts on Broadway’s brightest stages and appeared before the crowned heads of Europe. Their first Broadway act was in “Billy the Kid”, a play in which Joe Santely, “America’s Boy Actor”, was starred and in which they were featured with their two horses and their roping. Sidney Olcott was one of the players, who later became a Director in the motion picture field and as such insisted that companies be taken to the country or native locale called for by the script.”
