BEING A LIFE LONG FAN OF THE B WESTERN OF THE LATE 1930'S-1940'S THIS IS AN EXCELLENT TELLING OF THE LIFE AND CAREER OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE HERO'S FROM THAT TIME AS A SMALL BOY. HE WAS IN HIS PERSONAL LIFE WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS HELD HIM UP TO BE-A OUTSTANDING ATHLETE, HORSEMAN, AND GUN HANDLER. BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY, HE WAS A TRUE & HONORABLE SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN, A DEVOTED HUSBAND AND FATHER. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF THE OLD B WESTERN STARS; ESPECIALLY ONE NAMED JOHNNY MACK BROWN; YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK.

Bobby J. Copeland's book on "Johnny Mack Brown: Up Close & Personal" is chuck full of answers to all the questions his fans had from early on...when you went to see him on the big screen, you got exactly what the marquee said...plenty of thrills, adventure and loaded with action...Johnny Mack was a natural for the western, his riding abilities and fight scenes were of the the same caliber as Buck Jones and Bob Steele...Johnny Mack sets the saddle better than Duke Wayne...seems Johnny got better with the more films he made and the scripts were always top notch...he was one of the best-liked people in films, what you saw on the screen is what he really was...a great human being.

Copeland has composed each section in his book to perfection noting Johnny Mack ranked a close No. 2 behind good friend Charles Starrett (Durango Kid)...in the amount B-Westerns filmed Starrett made 131 and Johnny Mack made 110, just five more than B-actioner Bob Steele, No. 3...Johnny Mack was always in the Top 10 Western Box Office Attractions for Motion Picture Herald Poll and Box Office Poll from 1940 through 1950...this book is unlike any on Johnny Mack as you will have greater appreciation after reading about his film career, football and real-life experiences...covers Johnny from birth on September 1, 1904 (Dothan, Alabama) until his 2004 Golden Boot Award...written with the assistance of the Brown Family...complete filmography...extensive quotes by Johnny, his family and his peers...thoroughly researched through over 70 years of documents..Johnny was handsome, perfect physical specimen, a capable rider and with his exploits on the football field had provided plenty of publicity with which he would savor for the rest of his life and career.

I found myself being transported back in time, Mr. Copeland's book has opened my eyes to what a wonderful unselfish person Johnny Mack Brown was...only wish I could have met him, he was one of a kind...we lost Johnny Mack November 14, 1974 (Woodland Hills, CA.)...Copeland takes the reader into the off screen events that each and every "B-Western-film-buff" lives for...knowing that Johnny was one of the nicest people, well liked and highly respected by directors, producers and cast is another plus. Pictures galore and great interviews by his co-workers make this a collectors dream come true...one of my favorite character actors was Johnny Mack's sidekick Raymond Hatton (1887-1971) as Marshall Sandy Hopkins who appeared from 1943 and made 45 films for Monogram Pictures...Don't miss this one...now appearing on Amazon or Empire Publishing ...Don't hesitate...rush out and pick up your copy today. Great reading in the days and weeks to come...I guarantee it!
