Glenwood Springs ” The Defiant Years ”

< Back Home

The Valley Insider, with its partners and sponsors, will be bringing Glenwoods’ rich and colorful past alive starting with the Utes and all the characters up to 1926 with Hollywood’s Tom Mix .

The project will be funded by a kick-start campaign using the local communities Facebook connections to spread the word. DVD’s of the project will be available as the first stage level for a donation to the project. Colorized history photographs will be framed and enlarged for larger contributors to the project. A credit in the film will be given to sponsors of the project.  Part one, of the two part series, will cover 1860 to 1926 and part two 1926 to 1980. 

The project will recreate scenes from the past including Doug Mishler a Chautauqua actor who will portray a young and funny Teddy Roosevelt at the Hotel Colorado, his summer White House. A local Doc Holiday will bring some excitement to the film. Interviews with notable long time local will fill the project with first hand accounts of events and stories. We will also shine the light on many lesser known personalities like Dr.Crook who was a beloved doctor and Buffalo Bills personal physician. The project will be funded by a kick-start campaign.
