Yellowstone Cubs

Good Evening Everyone,

I just finished watching Yellowstone Cubs, produced in 1963 and played in the theatres with Savage Sam. It's narrated by Rex Allen and music is by Paul J Smith. There's a song sung by Allen. The lyrics begin with Easy Livin' so I presume that's the title (not credited). Does anyone have any information on this song? Is it by Paul J Smith or would they have brought in another writer.

Regards,

Tom

PS. Are there many other Canadians on this board?

Easy Livin was written by Paul J. Smith and (Disney Studio Nurse) Hazel "Gil" George.

Buddy Baker, George Bruns, and Oliver Wallace also worked on Yellowstone Cubs (1963).

Hi Tom, I don't have an answer to your primary question but thought I'd pipe in that this site is run by a Canadian -- me! I'm in Oakville, Ontario.

Thanks POTW. How did you ever know that Hazel George was involved?

Is there anywhere you can get a recording of this song?

I've never been to Canada but I did see the O'Canada film several years ago at Epcot Center- isn't it always very cold in Canada?

No, it's not cold in the southern parts of Canada. Don't forget Toronto is just about 1 1/2 hours from Buffalo. Toronto is maybe just a bit cooler than NYC but not much. But, usually we don't get as much snow as Buffalo. It's a Great Lakes thing.

It's funny what American citizens think about Canada. I had a friend up from Kentucky once. His main concern was that he likes ice in his drinks. He was told by friends in Kentucky that we don't do that here and that if you want it you have to ask for it.

Now back to the topic ;-)

I'm totally joking TomTO. Back when it premiered we all harped on the new Canada film for Epcot (the Martin Short version) which made a very big deal about the various misconceptions about Canada. So I thought I'd play the "ignorant American" and see fi anyone took me seriously. Sorry to give you a hard time ;)

You could ask Randy Thornton if it has ever been put out on vinyl or cassette as part of some obscure read-along series, but, to my knowledge, it has never been released.

Anyone? Anyone?
Is it true there is a Tim Hortons for every kilometer in Canada? ;)

Hummm... I always thought that "ignorant American" is redundant! :eek:

Your welcome! (THAT's for Bill to fiddle with!! :D)

You're welcome!

Actually; "sacrebleu" is an old French swear! It stands for "Sacr? Dieu!" which became "Sacr?bleu!", just like the "gosh!" expression in American English!

That's all for today!
Class dismissed! ;D ;)
