This featured photo from the archives depicts that real-life cowboy Joel McCrea with his wife Frances Dee bedecked in rancher's apparel. McCrea and Dee were both box-office drawing actors when they met on the set of The Silver Cord ( 1933 ). The McCreas owned a 3,000 acre spread in Thousand Oaks, California, where they spent their time riding and raising their three boys. This photograph features a scene from the last western they co-starred together in - Four Faces West ( 1948 ).
