Cast (feature film)

The Clown (1953) as Sergeant
In this remake of The Champ, a drunken clown tries to make a comeback so he can keep his son.
Count the Hours (1953) as Sheriff Masters
A lawyer defends a migrant worker in a sensational murder trial.
Code Two (1953) as Policeman
Three young men train to become motorcycle cops.
The Farmer Takes a Wife (1953) as Bartender
Erie Canal, N.Y., 1850: Molly Larkins, cook on Jotham Klore's canal boat, has a love-hate relationship with her boss. She hires handsome new haul-horse driver Dan Harrow and the inevitable triangle develops (complicated by Dan's desire to farm and Molly's to boat) against a background of the canalmen's fight against the encroaching railroad.
Man of Conflict (1953) as Police captain
The Marshal's Daughter (1953) as Sheriff Barnes
Produced by Ken Murray strictly as a vehicle for Laurie Anders, his curvy protege from his television show and billed above the title and first billed in the cast as Laurie ("I-like-the-wide-open-spaces") Anders, which was her catch-line phrase and how she was introduced and known. This is neither a comedy, satire or parody---missing badly on all attempts at such---and isn't much of a western either, even by bottom-of-the-barrel B-standards. The plot by veteran B-western villain player Bob Duncan, who did manage to write himself the best role in the movie, relative to there being no good roles in this movie, has town banker Anderson (Robert Bray as Bob Bray), the secret head of an outlaw gang, trying to organize a Cattleman's Association and not getting any takers. He sends for Trigger Gans (Bob Duncan) to act as a persuader. But a mysterious, masked rider known as El Coyote begins to resist. El Coyote is of course Laurie Dawson (Laurie Anders as Laurie "I-like-the-wide-open-spaces" Anders), daughter of retired Marshal and rancher Ben Dawson (Hoot Gibson), and her El Coyote role ensured that whoever stunt-doubled her would wear pads where no stunt man ever wore them, with the possible later exception of Dean Smith doubling Maureen O'Hara in "McLintock." The heroines that Dave Sharpe doubled in Republic serials weren't built like Laurie Anders. Producer Ken Murray, as a riverboat gambler named Sliding Bill Murray, rolls into town on the same stage as Trigger Gans, and then promptly engages Preston Foster, Johnny Mack Brown,Jimmy Wakely and Buddy Baer(in cameo roles) in a blackout-skit poker game written by himself, which had to have been even more painful for the participants than the viewers. Ralph Staub used to get better stuff than this in his "Screen Snapshots" just roaming around Columbia's backlot and interviewing Smiley Burnette and Ringeye.

Jerry's friendship for John is tested by the question of what to do about Matt, and by his attraction to John's girl Amanda.

Don Daredevil Rides Again (1951)
The 57th of Republic's 66 serials is filled with stock footage from some of that company's previous "Zorro" serials, primarily 1944's "Zorro's Black Whip", so a lot of the footage finds Ken Curtis wearing the same costume as Linda Stirling and (mostly) her double Babe DeFreest wore in that serial. Disney now owned the rights to the Zorro character, but Republic wasn't about to let all that footage go to waste when all they had to do was create a character called Don Daredevil. Those who express surprise at finding TV's "Festus" as the lead in a serial evidently are looking at the career of Ken Curtis from the back end rather than from the beginning aspect of his career. The serial has political boss Douglas Stratton (Roy Barcroft) finding that an old Spanish Land Grant made to Ricardo Moreno and later sold to Patrick Doyle to be a forgery, and he tries to cash in by having his men attempt to stake out mineral claims and homesteads on the ranches now part of the original grant. The plot is resisted by Patricia Doyle (Aline Towne), grand-daughter of Patrick Doyle, and her neighbor Gary Taylor (Robert Einer). Stratton backs up his demands with the help of the crooked sheriff (I. Stanford Jolley), and Gary and Patricia are facing with losing their property when her cousin, Lee Hadley (Ken Curtis), arrives from back East. Foreseeing Stratton's move, he already has homesteaded the Doyle Ranch, forcing Stratton to temporarily back down. The other ranchers follow suit, homesteading and mineral-claiming their own property, but Stratton organizes a gang of night riders to try and drive off the ranchers before they can prove their titles. Lee decides to take on the character of Don Daredevil, which has been used by his grandfather during earlier times of trouble. As the masked daredevil, Lee is successful in driving off Stratton's raiders. Stratton lures Don Daredevil into an ambush but he escapes to an old ore shack overhanging a cliff, and Chapter One, "Return of the Don", ends when the shack is dynamited. Eleven more chapters reel by before Lee/Don Daredevil acquires the original, unforged deed and puts an end to Stratton's scheme in the 12th episode, "Flames of Vengeance."

In this remake of Gene Autry's 1942 "Call of the Canyon", Rex Allen (Rex Allen), the newly-elected head of the cattleman's association, is driving the combined herds of the ranchers to the nearest railhead when he runs into trouble. The drive is stopped by Brock Stevens (Robert Karnes), whose father is a power in the meat-packing industry, and whose ownership of the railroad spur line enables him to deal ruthlessly with the local ranchers. Rex and the other ranchers are elated when Brock agrees to pay fair-market price for the cattle until they learn the exorbitant loading fees he charges will eat up their profits. The only alternative is to drive the herd to the main line railroad at Big Bow, but to do so means Brock will crack down on them for the $10,000 feed bill they owe his company. Rex starts to Tulsa to borrow the needed money, after ending a move by Hank (Trevore Bardette), the lone dissenter among the ranchers and actually in league with the Stevens crowd. Brock sends his foreman, Webb (Lane Bradford), to stop Rex and his sidekick Jigg (Fuzzy Knight) and when this fails, Brock contacts his father, Charles Stevens (Robert Emmett Keane) in Tulsa. Whens the elder Stevens learns that Rex is appealing to Kate Carney (Elizabeth Risdon), owner of a rival packing company, he sets a plan in action to undermine Rex's appeal for a loan.

Sandino decides to adopt the name of Sands for this escapade. They return to a town in which Adams was once the mayor, and find that Adams' daughter, Wynne (Norma Trelvar), is busy entertaining a host of friends at a party she is giving for her fiancee District Attorney Bob Sherman (Arthur Singley.) Once installed in the town, with the aid of the trusted Adams, Sands soon has gathered a flock of potential members for the Avenging Angels. He initiates them by forcing them to kneel while he holds a revolver at their head and forces them to take the oath that carries death as the punishment for breaking it. He and Adams then sell them hoods, cloaks and revolvers at fabulously high prices. It is soon easy for Sands/Sandino to turn the hatred among the members against the city's foreign elements. The town citizens, foreign-born excepted, are easily swayed by Sands, with the exception of Sherman and newspaper editor Harry Warren (Allan Cavan.) With the money rolling in, Sands opens chapters in other parts of the state, and when Adams voices his resentment at Sands' courting of his daughter, who has split from Sherman, Sands caters to the old man's ambitions and has him elected governor of the state.
