Howdy Manco!!

Stanley Ridges made his silent film debut in 1923, in the film Success. With his rich voice and good diction, he easily made the transition from silent to talkies in the 1934 film, Crime Without Passion, with Claude Rains. He appeared in Black Friday with Boris Karloff and, To Be Or Not To Be, with Jack Benny. He also appeared in the 1941 films, Sea Wolf and They Died With Their Boots On. He will probably be best remembered as Gary Cooper's commanding officer in, Sergeant York.

Don"Red"Barry got his start in the late 30's, in several films, but it was in 1939, that he appeared in Ghost Valley Raiders which set him on the road to westerns. His next film was his most famous. He played the lead role in, The Adventures Of Red Ryder, from which he took his nickname. For the next 10 years, Barry appeared in over 30 matinee westerns, like, The Apache Kid, Dead Man's Gulch and I shot Jesse James. After the 40's with the matinee films no longer being cranked out by the hundreds, Barry was forced to become a supporting actor for other stars, like Randolph Scott in Seven Men From Now, Alvarez Kelly and Shalako with Sean Connery. He also began appearing on just about every t.v. series on during the 60's and 70's, like Cheyenne, Colt .45, Bat Masterson, F Troop, Perry Mason, Ozzie And Harriett. In the late 70's, his career began to wind down, due to age, and after the police were called for a domestic dispute in 1980, at the age of 68, Donald"Red" Barry used a .38 revolver to commit suicide in the presence of the police.
