Mail for the 49ers
23 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For as many people who went out to mine gold, some of the smarter ones found more enterprising ways of making money. Such was the case of William Pullen who saw big possibilities in delivering mail from home that was piled up at the San Francisco post office. Pullen starts a mail service and even at one point hauls some gold to a San Francisco bank. All for some good size fees.

One man who declines his services is a young 49er played by a 24 year old Clint Eastwood. He hasn't the money to pay for Pullen's mail service, his luck's been so bad at the diggings.

But as Pullen is pulling out of the mail service he does mistakenly get a letter for Eastwood in with his customers. On the house he delivers it and it changes Eastwood's life.

This as all Death Valley Days episodes were good stories done in the economical style of a half hour. This was a real find on YouTube for me showing Clint Eastwood in one of his earliest roles. He's unmistakable.
