Photo Coverage: THE HIGH CHAPARRAL TV Reunion 2014

More than 200 fans spent the weekend of March 20-23rd meeting and posing with members of The High Chaparral cast and crew during The High Chaparral Reunion at Casino del Sol Resort in Tucson, Arizona. Check out photos from the reunion below!

The historic show aired on NBC network from 1967 to 1971. The show is considered historic because it promoted Latino and other minority actors during the height of the Civil Rights movement, a time when many acting opportunities weren't open to them. The show is currently being shown in syndication on the INSP channel, which is opening up a new generation of fans.

Attending were Henry Darrow (Manolito Montoya) and wife Lauren Levian, Don Collier (Sam Butler), Rudy Ramos (Wind), Kent McCray (production manager) and wife/casting director Susan McCray, along with Stan Ivar (Little House on the Prairie: A New Beginning), Western author Boyd Magers (Western Clippings Magazine) and stuntman/author Neil Summers.

During the gathering, produced by Penny McQueen, cast, crew and fans participated in a steak dinner at the White Stallion Ranch; a casting call overseen by Susan McCray; a Sponsors Dinner including music from The Vinnie Falcone Trio in a tribute to composer Harry Sukman; a trip to Old Tucson Studios where the show was filmed, including a horse trail ride and live stunts; a trivia contest; and live premiers of Rudy Ramos' "Geronimo, Life on the Reservation," (written by Janelle Meraz-Hooper and directed by Steve Railsback); and Don Collier's "Confessions of an Acting Cowboy." The group also held question and answer panels and autograph/photograph sessions,
