Ronny's Kodak Moment
22 August 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

This was the first of three "home movies" included in the bonus features on the special edition DVD release of "The Missing" (2003). Each of the short films is western-themed, to tie-in with director Ron Howard's "first" western feature. They are certainly not the only home-movies Mr. Howard made, although currently presented as such. The year of production is given as 1969. At that time, Howard had finished "The Andy Griffith Show" a teenager and accepted stints on westerns like "Gunsmoke", while younger brother Clint Howard was the new TV kid in the family in the shorter-lived "Gentle Ben" co-starring their dad, Rance Howard.

"Deed of Daring-Do" is a silent short starring young brother Clint. He wanders onto a "western" studio backlot and imagines himself in a cowboy movie. The fantasy swings when Ronny's girlfriend Cheryl Alley appears, dressed in western attire. Cheryl gives Clint a comely wink, which invites an appearance from a dastardly rival, played by father Rance. After the inevitable shoot-out, it appears Clint has won the girl, or has he… This is a competent effort, with Ronny's access to resources obviously coming in handy. According to the young filmmaker, "Deed of Daring-Do" won the Howard brothers $100 in a Kodak-sponsored contest.

***** Deed of Daring-Do (1969) Ron Howard ~ Clint Howard, Rance Howard, Cheryl Alley
