Rendezvous at Boulder Pass -- Cowboy's sweethearts (1935-45)

'Rendezvous at Boulder Pass' is a continuing series about "movie genres and character roles" performed on the old Iverson Movie Location Ranch in Chatsworth, California.  For more information about the Iverson Movie Ranch see:  

Or see to find my books about Chatsworth movie locations: Rendezvous at Boulder Pass: Hollywood's Fantasyland - 2010 (ISBN: 978-0-615-21522-8) and Reel Cowboys of the Santa Susanas - 2008 (ISBN: 978-0-615-21499-3) by Jerry England, and published by Echo Press

In my 'Reel Cowboys of the Santa Susanas' posts I've paid homage to some of my cowboy heroes, and listed their filmographies for Chatsworth filming locations.

Now, let's take a look at some cowgirls... those Western heart throbs and 'cowboy's sweethearts
