Howdy Tinhorn!!

Isabel Jewell first appeared in Up Pops The Devil and Blessed Event in the 30's, but drew national attention with her performance in Lost Horizon in the late 30's, along with her role in Gone With The Wind. She often appeared as the woman of gangsters in films. She appeared in Northwest Passage in 1940 and High Sierra in 1941, but her career as a star was over in the early 40's. She appeared in supporting roles in a few westerns like Badman's Territory, Belle Star's Daughter and Drum Beat and although she continued to act through 1973, the roles were mostly in t.v. series as a character actress.

We just talked about .Ms Medina in April on the actors and actress connected to westerns that have passed away thread. .Ms Medina was 92 years old. She first appeared Dinner At The Ritz in 1937 and moved to Hollywood in 1940. She was cast in The Fortunes Of Captain Blood and The Three Musketeers in the late 40's, along with appearing with Abbott and Costello in a French Foreign Legion film. She continued to appear through the 50's with roles in The Black Knight and .Mr Arkadin, but by the end of the 50's her roles were mainly in t.v. series, like Zorro, Whistling Smith amd The Man From U.N.C.L.E. She was a beautiful actress with dark hair and eyes, who took her good looks from her Spanish father.

Pat Hingle served on a destroyer in the south Pacific during WWII and first appeared in film, in the 1954 movie, On The Waterfront. Although Pat continued to appear on the big screen occasionally, in films like, Batman, Batman And Robin and Batman Forever as Police Commissioner Gordon and as the bartender in The Quick And The Dead, he is better known for his innumerable appearances in t.v. series from the 50's, through the end of the century. He played judges, lawyers, Sheriffs, fathers, brothers, uncles and every role you can imagine in a career that spanned over 50 years in t.v. He was one of the best of the "ole breed" of Hollywood and I miss him in films today.

Richard Jordan first appeared in the early 60's in the t.v. series, Naked City, but it wasn't long before he was being offered choice roles in Valdez Is Coming and Lawman with Burt Lancaster. Jordon was given great roles in Rooster Cogburn, The Hunt For Red October, The Secret Of My Success, The Mean Season, right through one of his last roles in Posse in 1993. Richard Jordon was an excellent actor , who made you believe his role. He died at the early age of 56 in 1993.

Tim McIntire was the son of veteran character actor John McIntire and actress Jeanette Nolan. He made his screen debut in the 60's t.v. series Stoney Burke
and later on his father's series, Wagon Train. He appeared in many of the 60's-70's t.v. westerns, like Kung Fu, Gunsmoke, The Virginian before taking on roles on the Big Screen, like, Brubaker, The Sterile Cuckoo, and A Boy And His Dog. He also composed music for other films, like the score for Jeremiah Johnson. He continued to act through 1984. Unfortunately, Tim McIntire died in 1986, of a heart ailment, before either of his parents passed on. All 3 are interred at the Tobacco Valley Cemetery in Tobacco Valley, Montana.
