The Going Public ... in Shorts Series
Narrated by John McLain / 35 minutes
From pulp fiction writer Robert E. Howard, the first story in his most commercially successful series A comedic western, "Mountain Man" is about the tall tales and big adventures of Brekenridge Elkins, an exaggerated, cartoonish version of Howard himself. The story first appeared in the March-April 1934 issue of Action Stories and was so popular that other magazines asked Howard for similar characters, giving birth to an entire series full of colorful characters.
