Barbara writes: "Steve wasn't a method actor. Instead, he started his research by reading all the material that he could get his hands on about the person he was going to play..Realism was his driving force."




SUNSET ON THE RANGE.

Size: 16" x 20"

Barbara writes: "He just loved the serenity of the desert. We had all the privacy we needed and the nights were still and quiet. It was the perfect place to gaze up into the night sky and count the stars."




TOM HORN.

Size: 16" x 20"

Barbara writes: "Nobody knew the endless hours and meticulous research he had put into preparing for his roles...."God is in the details," is what Steve would always say."




TOM HORN, WINTER.

Size: 16" x 20"

The wintry landscape and authentic costumes placed the film squarely in the tradition of the 1970's 'revisionist' westerns, which deliberately sought an authenticity in strong contrast to classical Hollywood.
