The doors open at 6:00 p.m. when patrons will get to mingle with the 501st and Rebel Legion and meet some of the special guests.  At 7:00 p.m. the pre-screening discussion will feature stories about the making of the film and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi will screen at approximately 7:30 p.m.  The event is free and no reservations are needed.  Kevin and his wife Tracey, who wrote the book, “My Journey to Endor,” are instead asking attendees to donate to their charity.

HONOREES TO BE INDUCTED INTO WALK OF WESTERN STARS IN OLD TOWN NEWHALL. Local stuntmen Billy Burton and Walter Scott will be formally honored with a bronze saddle on terrazzo tile at the unveiling on April 21.

The City of Santa Clarita invites community members to attend the unveiling of the newest inductees to the Walk of Western Stars on Friday, April 21, at 5:00 p.m. Local stuntmen Billy Burton and Walter Scott will be formally honored with a bronze saddle on terrazzo tile at the unveiling. This special event will take place on the sidewalk half a block south of Reyes Winery on Main, which is located on the west side of Main Street in Old Town Newhall, between 8th Street and Market Street.

Since 1981, the City has honored Western television, radio and film stars, and these new inductees will join them with their own bronze stars.

Billy Burton is a longtime Castaic resident, a stuntman and second unit director with an impressive career starting in the mid-1960s. He has made more than 100 movies and television shows, with 30 of them in the Western genre. He began his career on movies such as “The Shakiest Gun in the West,” “The Great Train Robbery,” and “Little Big Man” with Dustin Hoffman. Raised in Southern California, his horse-riding skills and cowboy lifestyle made him a natural fit as a stuntman during the heyday of Westerns. Some of Mr. Burton’s other credits include “Blazing Saddles,” “Bite the Bullet” and “Heaven’s Gate.”  He has also done stunts for non-Westerns, including “Predator,” “Bad Boys” and many more.

Walter Scott, who is a Canyon Country resident, has been in the movie business since the mid-1960s as well. He has more than 200 credits as a stuntman, actor and second unit director, 54 of which are for Westerns. One of Mr. Scott’s first jobs was as Clint Eastwood’s stunt double for the film “Hang ‘Em High.” He also worked on classic Western such as “The Cowboys,” “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid,” “The Outlaw Josey Wales” and “Comes a Horseman.” Recent credits include the television show “Westworld” and two films made by Quentin Tarantino: “The Hateful Eight” and “Django Unchained.” Outside of the Western genre, Mr. Scott did stunts for the 1975 version of “Rollerball,” “They Live” and “Back to the Future.”

Free parking for the Walk of Western Stars unveiling will be available in the parking structure located on 9th Street between Railroad Avenue and Main Street. Community members are invited to further celebrate the newest inductees at a special reception inside Reyes Winery on Main beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The reception will include light appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks, wine for purchase and video clips of the inductees’ work playing on screens.
