8x10 glossy publicity photo for Henry and Dolores Crowell's trampoline-act business in Littlerock, which they operated after leaving Melody Ranch in 1990 or 1991.
(Glare/reflection in upper corners is on the original print.)
Henry Crowell performed a trampoline act with Gene Autry's traveling road show from 1949 to 1961, when Autry stopped going on the road. After the 1962
wildfire that burned down most of the Melody Ranch movie-set buildings, Crowell moved onto the Placerita Canyon ranch as Autry's ranch manager.
One of Crowell's major responsibilities was to care for Autry's last Champion (Champion III) and ultimately put the horse to sleep on May 9, 1990, after which time Autry
sold the remaining acreage of the ranch to the Veluzat family (December 1990).
Henry and Dolores married at the ranch in 1983. When Autry sold the ranch, they moved to Littlerock, where they operated a comedy trampoline business and performed a Western whip and high-wire act.
