According to page 70 of "Notes For A Memoir", Janet Jeppson, second wife of Isaac Asimov, describes how she was acting as an extra in this movie on August 14, 1945, when Wallace Beery came out of his trailer to tell everyone on-site that World War II had been declared over. See more »
Bascomb said that he didn't want anything to do with marriage. But in one scene with Margaret O'Brien one can see Beery's wedding ring. See more »
Bad Bascomb is a Classic & should be shown more often
Bad Bascomb is a true Western Classic. Wallace Beery was a great actor of his time; although there are other movies of his that my family and I liked, this one is the best.
Marjorie Main & Margaret O'Brien are also a great asset to this film. I am sorry to say this movie is not shown on TV very often and is not available on VHS/DVD; hopefully in the near future.
For all of you Wallace Beery fans, I am happy to report, I was e-mailed the other day from Turner Classic Movies, that this movie will be shown on TCM on Thursday, December 13th, at 6:00 pm ET; so have a new tape ready for this GREAT movie.
Thank You for your time!! JAL
