14” high, tan and white butterfly and “MM”. Star of stage, screen and rodeo, Montie rode in 60 consecutive Pasadena Rose Parades and roped President Eisenhower at the 1953 Inaugural in Washington. He rode his horse on top of the Empire State Building, and received hundreds of awards and honors during his extraordinary lifetime. Montie appeared in a number of John Wayne movies, including the 1962 classic The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence. Adults who came through the Los Angeles school system remember him demonstrating the art of trick roping and teaching cowboy values through his promotional tours sponsored by Wonder Bread. In the 1950s, Montana was banking over $5000 a week during a time when contract ‘A’ list actors were making only $500 a week.
