This gun was previously in the Colt collection of noted Hollywood actor and stuntman, Hunter VonLeer who obtained it during his career from Carl Pitts who performed in shows with Tom Mix in Hollywood's early days. Carl Pitts got the gun from Walter Cameron who was an Indian Agent who traveled to Hollywood in the 1920s where he opened the Ben-Hur stables in Culver City and supplied horses to the movie industry for around 40 years. Walter was also a member of the L.A. mounted Sheriff's posse and his name is listed as a performer with the 101 Ranch. Walter also worked for the early movie production studio, World Films and at the Peerless Studios in Ft. Lee. He also performed in the early motion picture "The Great Train Robbery". He was a U.S. Deputy Marshal in the Indian Territory and also ran several cattle outfits in the Choctaw Nation including the Bar 14 outfit and the W-BAR-C outfit. He was a cattleman in Steamboat Springs, Co., around 1906 and performed in many Wild West Shows. Walter was also a close friend to Tex Cooper who performed with Pawnee Bill's Wild West Shows.
