    Arizona Adventure

    IF YOU ask the cast of “Branded” they’ll tell you all the world really is a stage. For scenes in this Alan Ladd Western they had to be lowered into Salt River Canyon, a junior-size Grand Canyon, with sheer 1,000- foot cliffs. They were nearly blinded by a dust storm, blistered by the sun, almost frozen in the mountains. But even the hazards of rounding up 500 wild steers couldn’t scare them out of the time of their lives.
