Cast members who worked with Disney Legends Wally Boag and Betty Taylor during their nearly 30 years and 40,000 performances of the Golden Horseshoe Revue At Disneyland Park have fond memories of the two dedicated entertainers who passed away just one day apart on June 3-4.
Betty, who played Sluefoot Sue-the charming, spunky leader of a troupe of western dance hall girls-performed in nearly 45,000 productions of the revue, beginning in 1956 until her retirement in 1987.
Wally, who retired in 1982, played her character's sweetheart, Pecos Bill. He also later appeared on such television shows as the original "Mickey Mouse Club" and "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color," as well as movies, including "The Absent-Minded Professor" and "The Love Bug." Betty was 91 when she passed away, Wally was 90.
After winning the role of Pecos Bill, Wally quickly became one of Walt Disney's favorite comedic actors.
It's been more than 25 years since their final curtain,however, their legacy will live on.
FUN FACT: Wally Boag provided the voice of the Audio-Animatronics parrot Jose in Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.
