The movie trailer known as "Innocence of Muslims," blamed for sparking riots in Egypt, Libya and Yemen, has cast an unwelcome spotlight on one of the busiest movie ranches in Los Angeles County.

The movie business has its share of characters, and Rene Veluzat is one of them. A stuntman and actor, Veluzat has doubled for Robert Wagner, Larry Storch and Don Knotts. He's danced onstage with Elvis. On top of that, he's a ringer for Wayne Newton. But these days, he's mostly a movie ranch owner.

As Newhall teen-agers enchanted by the world of make-believe, Renaud and Andre Veluzat spent hours peeking through a fence at Gene Autry's Melody Ranch to spot their Wild West idols making movies and TV shows--James Arness, Roy Rogers, John Wayne. "We always loved this place," Renaud Veluzat, 43, said. "It was a big part of our youth."
