In researching the synopsis of the 1985 SILVERADO Movie I have not been able to find any information or reference to the Character of Paden in the Silverado Movie being drawn from the True to Life Paden Tolbert of the Old West Oklahoma Territory. Although after watching the Movie and having studied the real life Paden Tolbert played by Kevin Kline it would be easy to see how the two characters would parallel each other in many ways. The movie was centered on Turley, Oklahoma (no longer exists) in 1880 and at that time in history the real Paden Tolbert would have been between 10 and 17 years of age as his actual date of birth is best guessed as between 1863 and 1870.

This all leads to our Old Trading Post version of the 1985 Arvo Ojala Design Paden Tolbert Fast Draw Cartridge Gun Belt and Holster(s) Set. The Old Trading Post version of the 1985 Arvo Ojala Design Paden Tolbert Fast Draw Cartridge Gun Belt and Holster(s) Set is one of our more popular Fast Draw Sets patterned after the 1940 through 1980 Arvo Ojala, Andy Anderson or Alfonso Pineda Fast Draw Hollywood Gun Belt and Holster Sets. In fact our Leathersmith learned gun leather making at the Arvo Ojala Hollywood Fast Draw Shop and through the 1970s he worked directly with all 3 of the men mentioned above. Just like the Fast Draw Hollywood Sets of 1940s through the 1980s the holsters are reinforced to hold their rigidity with the constant Drawing and Holstering of a Revolver.

ABOUT: Paden Tolbert 1863 or 1870 – April 24, 1904 Paden Tolbert was an American law enforcement officer and railroad agent he took his first position as Deputy Sheriff of Johnson County, Arkansas on October 7, 1885 appointed by Sheriff W. S. Jett. Later Paden Tolbert became one of the leading deputy U.S. Marshals in the Indian Territory during the late 1880s and 1890s and often worked with other well-known lawmen of his time including Bud Ledbetter, Heck Thomas and Bill Tilghman. Paden Tolbert and his brother John Tolbert were both deputy marshals under The Hanging Judge Isaac Parker of the U.S . District Court of Fort Smith and Muskogee.

One of many young deputies first used by Judge Parker in the U.S. District Courts in Ft. Smith and Muskogee, Tolbert was part of a legendary generation of U.S. Marshals that also included J.H. Mershon A.J. Trail, Heck Bruner, Sam Six Killer, Wes Bowman and BASS REEVES. A reputation for courage and devotion to service, Marshal Leo E. Bennett stated that he considered Tolbert to be one of the bravest men that he ever had on the force. Tolbert and G.S. White led the posse that was sent from Ft. Smith to apprehend Ned Christie in the third and final attempt to force him from his mountain fortress.

The siege lasted two days and involved dynamite and a cannon to destroy the hideout; this was the only time a cannon was used on civilians by U.S. law enforcement officers. Tolbert and Ledbetter are also credited with foiling the infamous 1894 train robbery at Blackstone Switch which led to the capture of Nathaniel Texas Jack Reed and his gang as well as the capture of the Jennings Gang in 1897. The town of Paden, Oklahoma is named in honor of Paden Tolbert, and his family were the first to introduce Alberta peaches to Clarksville, Arkansas for which the city remains famous.
