Some parents have grainy video preserving their baby’s early days.

Judy Dubsky has a full-length musical produced by Paramount Pictures.

“It’s so exciting to hear their little voices,” she said.

In 1968, Dubsky, who lived in Baker City, had 3-month-old twins, Susan and Richard. That was the same time when Paramount Pictures was in need of infant twins to be featured in “Paint Your Wagon,” a movie filmed along East Eagle Creek in Baker County.

Dubsky shared her story about being part of the movie crew during a special event at the Baker Heritage Museum on Thursday.

This is the 50th anniversary of the filming and the museum unveiled a special exhibit this spring. Last week’s event aimed to collect more stories that could be added to the display.
