Hey, guys, sorry, I was wrong about what picture I saw and where I saw it. After being unable to turn up anywhere a still picture fitting the description, I checked "TCM Remembers 2017" on YouTube and found these. No wonder I thought it was a still as it was not three seconds, it was only two! These are the only images I was able to get, and keep in mind these are screenshots from a brief film clip at YouTube quality. If anyone has something the same or very similar of higher quality, please share, thanks!

Hi CoriSCapnSkip,
This is the only still I could find that matches some of your criteria:
This photo was projected in the background on stage for about 3 seconds at the end of a Glen Campbell tribute segment on the ACM Honors show, that aired September 15, 2017. It is similar to the photo used on Glen's compilation album, 'Arkansas', but this one was taken at a different angle and has green and yellow leaves in the background.
I hope you can locate the photo you are searching for!

Update: It was 100% not the NBC Nightly News nor the Academy Awards. I found both on YouTube. NBC had a still picture but not that one and the Oscars did not even include Glen Campbell. That narrows it down to probably some New Year's Eve tribute.

Thanks, I saw the picture for three seconds and may have mistaken aspen leaves for similar yellow leaves. ​I know I had time enough to think it was the greatest image of Glen I had seen, and over the decades I had seen a lot, and by the time I had time to think that it was gone. There are also so many channels now and no network to which I am loyal that I was afraid I could not possibly say what program it was on, but it occurs to me it could have been on the Academy Awards, which makes a lot of sense, as I don't watch the entire program but would have walked in for that part. Might contacting the Academy do any good?

Well, Darn. I was hoping it would be in one of those groups.

I am pretty sure that pic is from the ones taken for the Wichita Lineman album.

Either Glen had one set of pictures clothes in the 60's...lol...or Capitol maximized a photo shoot day with Glen. I am presuming that this studio work was for the Wichita Lineman album and/or his compilation album with Bobbie Gentry, as the shirt and coat can be seen in the studio and with Gentry. In your picture, he is holding an Ovation Deluxe Balladeer, which helps place the timeline of these pictures around mid 68.

Thanks. That fourth source I did not know about and is nice to learn of, but I had seen all those images on other sites, including Pinterest and the John Wayne Message Board. The one I found which seemed the closest and which I liked the best is this.

My sisters and I were huge fans. We watched his variety show and would shout down anyone else who tried to sing "Gentle on My Mind" with, "That's Glen Campbell's song!" When we were little a family named Campbell moved out of a house on the next block. We got the idea it was Glen's house and he would come home sometime between tapings of his Goodtime Hour variety show, but no matter how much we stood in the driveway, he never did. 😢

Need a Specific Glen Campbell "True Grit" Picture

Post by CoriSCapnSkip » Sun Oct 28, 2018 11:16 pm

Can anyone help me find a SPECIFIC photo of Glen I KNOW was taken during True Grit? Here is what I can describe: It isn't the well-known one of him holding the revolver. It was shown briefly during a tribute when he passed away. Pretty sure it was NOT TCM as this was a still and they use clips. He may or may not have been on horseback. Almost certainly not wearing a hat, as the glowing golden aspens were directly behind his head giving almost the effect of a halo. This image was so great I thought it would be better known and am quite crestfallen not to find it, but has not turned up in Google, Pinterest, Getty Images, Glen's Official Website, or Glen's Facebook page. Anyone help? Thanks!
