Utah's Little Hollywood

—Kanab Utah "Walk of Fame" —

Singing cowboy star Tex Ritter and his horse, "White Flash", thundered across the screen in dozens of westerns, for Monogram Studios, in the 1930's and 1940's. In polls in that time, Tex was voted one of the top ten money making cowboys at the box office. His film work brought him to Kanab for scenes in "Westbound Stage" and "Roll Wagons Roll". Tex was a Grammy award winning recording artist, a member of "The Grand Ole Opry", and one of the most popular live entertainers in his 50 year career. His son John Ritter achieved his own stardom in the hit television series, "Three's Company".
