My friends and I used to go to the Hitching Post Theater in Santa Monica every Saturday in the 1940s (I lived just down the street at 4th and Pacific). They played all Western movies, double features .. Lash LaRue, Tom Mix, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and on and on. The only exceptions to the Westerns I remember were the Three Stooges shorts and the cartoons. I should also note that the ushers would get up on stage between features and throw out Double-Bubble gum and various candies. It was a great way to spend Saturday afternoons.
