CONCERTS & EVENTS - Painted Woman Premier


As you can see from the photo above, Dusty Richards was one very happy cowboy on Saturday.


Painted Woman premiered a week ago today to become #1 at the box office in Poteau OK over Daddy's Home and Thor!!


After the movie I had Dusty pose next to the movie poster for me.


PAINTED WOMAN is one of the best written movies I have seen in a very long time. The biggest thing for me was that the sexual tension between Vincent and Julia was almost tangible from the screen. They never kissed once (though they do come close at a critical point) but you could almost see them draw to one another then the writers pull them away... like two very strong magnets you are fighting to keep separated. James Cotten and Amber Lindley did an excellent job crafting this movie.

One thing to keep in mind is that this is NOT Dusty's book, Mustanger and the Lady made into a movie. So don't read the book and expect the same thing on screen. Amber and James were INSPIRED by the characters in the book to create a beautiful piece they could take to the screen. The magic was intensified by the talent of David Thomas Jenkins and Stef Dawson in the leading roles.

I found this interview with Stef Dawson on YouTube:


Following the premier we went to Western Sizzlin for a celebration dinner with Dusty. This was his 150th novel and as well as his (we're not giving his age away) birthday.

OUT OF THE CHUTE - Dusty Richards

Dusty Richards has always been a cowboy at heart. He went to a roundup at seven years old, sat on a real horse and watched them brand calves on the Peterson Ranch in Othello WA. He was thirteen when his family moved to Arizona from the Midwest. With a horse of his own, ranches to work on, rodeos to ride in Dusty knew he'd gone to heaven. His mother worried he'd grow up to be an "old cowboy bum".  Dusty had higher sites.

Since English teachers never read westerns, he made up his own book reports like "Guns on the Brazos' by J. P. Jones where a Texas Ranger saves the town... and the girl. He sold them for a dollar to other boys when teenagers were lucky to earn fifty cents an hour. Those book reports kept him and his buddy in gas money to get them back and forth to high school

After graduation from Arizona State University in 1960, Dusty moved to Arkansas where he ranched, worked as an auctioneer, announced rodeos, worked in management with Tyson foods (32 years), anchored TV news all while struggling to get his first book sold.

His first book, Noble's Way, sold in 1992 and the wagon train hasn't slowed since. His publishing list counts over 100 novels under Dusty Richards as well as pseudonyms.



In 2003, The Natural won the Oklahoma Writer's Federation Fiction Book of the Year. He followed in 2004 with a second win, this time for The Abilene Trail - a Ralph Compton novel. 


Dusty invests a lot of his time helping others who want to learn how to write. According to Dusty there is no difference in writing any kind of fiction. "You simply change the sets, costumes and dialect." He speaks at conferences and has served on various organization's board over the years including Western Writers of America and Ozark Creative Writers and continues to do so. 

This Friday, November 10, Pioneer Woman, will release in theaters. The movie is based on The Mustanger and the Lady.


Here's the Official Trailer:



Please call your local theater and request this Award-Winning Indie film.
