Straight Arrow by K Henderson

Straight Arrow, 30 x 40,  oil on linen

"Nabisco Shredded Wheat presents Straight Arrow, a thrilling new adventure story from the exciting days of the Old West!"  That's how the radio show opened twice a week.

"Straight Arrow was a Western designed for kids. The show was broadcast between 1948 and 1951. Howard Culver played Steve Adams in the series. Steve was a ranch owner who really was a Comanche Indian named "Straight Arrow". He wore his Indian garb and rode a palomino horse named "Fury" while he fought outlaws."

This Straight Arrow board game was manufactured by Selchow & Righter co. in 1950. Included in the painting is a spinner from the game, a wooden Tomahawk and a feathered headdress.
