Death Valley Days The Great Turkey War
Directed by Hal Cooper. With Ronald Reagan, Parley Baer, Rex Holman. Takes place in Colorado at the southern portion of what was known as the Territory of Jefferson, came in with a large number of wild turkeys to sell, arriving at Auraria at a time when there was a greater number than usual of ruined, reckless men loafing about the settlement. These last some of them, perhaps, not having money with which to buy food, set upon the hunters and took, or stole, if you please, before the owners’ eyes the greater number of the turkeys. It was only natural that the hunters should defend their property, and the better class of citizens, both in Denver and Auraria, joined forces with the men who had been robbed, to drive the outlaws from the town. Based on a true story.
