COLONEL Tim Mc Coy was a great American
11 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Firstly a few details of his life (from the IMDb biography and other sources).After leaving school, Mc Coy worked on a Wyoming ranch where he became an expert horseman and roper. A patriotic American, during WW1, he enlisted in the US Army rising to the rank of Colonel. He would also serve his country during WW2 when he would enlist in the Army Air Corps earning several decorations for his service in Europe. In 1921 , he resigned from the army and entered the Movies. His first job was technical adviser for the great epic movie "The Covered Wagon. ( the making of this movie is also an an epic story and would make a fascinating feature movie and a tribute to the courage of American Pioneers).Tim then became an actor and for a time was a major cowboy star. Although , his later movies were low budget , they are all noted for his honesty and high moral qualities and he can properly be compared to Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. The films of these actors are today being enjoyed by numerous fans and movie collectors
