Special thanks to:  the Motion Picture & Television Fund Foundation for providing the full listing of honorees and photos; Andy Southard, who attended many of the 1980s Award programs and provided information and remembrances about the programs; and Andy Southard and Ancel Cook for providing the photos on this webpage.

In the early 1980s, veteran movie sidekick Pat Buttram conceived the Golden Boot Award as a way to recognize the achievements of cowboy film heroes and heroines, as well as writers, directors, stunt people and character actors who had significant involvement in the film and TV western.

As president of the Masquers, Buttram gave a dinner honoring Bob Steele and presented him with a belt buckle with a Golden Boot on it.

In 1983, the Golden Boot award was presented to various western film folks, including Steele.

The Golden Boot Awards and program continues today. Proceeds from the Golden Boot Awards benefit the health and human services, retirement and child care programs of the Motion Picture & Television FundŽ in Woodland Hills, California.
