Smith is ono of 110 riders hirod for "The Horse Soldiers" by Denstorff end other Louisiana Employment Service representatives. By Arthur H. Matthews NATCHITOCHES, La. Louisiana country boys are no slouches when it comes to playing the parts of cavalrymen in "The Horse Soldiers." The movie's veteran director, John Ford, even said it was "unbelievable" how well the 110 assorted boys nd men were turned into an "army" in 24 hours. Ford made that observation for the Louisiana Employment Service personnel who helped in hiring of the extras. The horsemen were atop their mounts for the third day before the cameras today. Signing up movie extras and horse riding ones at that isn't a part of the routine in the employment office that Roy Knotts sonex 12 - 2 250-Ft. Coils foot We Give S&H GREEN STAMPS T. C. BRISTER HARDWARE 716 Main St., Pineville manages in Natchitoches. When the big order came along just two weeks before camera time a specialist was assigned to help Knotts with the problem. Charlie Denstorff, manager of the state employment service Baton Rouge office, came to Knotts' aid as a man experienced in hiring movie people. He'd Done It Before It has fallen Denstorffs lot to help line up extras for five Louisiana movies. "The Long Hot Summer" was the last one he worked on that has been released. Others have been "The Sound and the Fury" and "Band of Angels." But never before has he had to help in hiring 110 men who could ride horses and take the commands of a cavalry commander. It wasn't too hard a Job, though, Denstorff and . Knotts revealed. They had 248 would-be riders to apply. The applicants sruprised the studio representatives with their military background and ability to understand orders. Of the 110 now working, 49 were veterans. The employment specialists cite this as the reason the horsemen were so easy to make into an "army." The cavalrymen range in age from 18-57. Applications for the work came from as far north in Louisiana as Vivian and as far south as De-Quincy. The territory from which the riders was drawn also extends eastward to Natchez, Miss., and westward to East Texas. Knotts said the hirings have helped his unemployment picture to some extent, but most of the riders were farm boys or otherwise self employed. The employment specialists also had the job of signing up the congregation of a colored Baptist church located a mile south of Clarence. The members will appear in one scene.
