Forrest Tucker and Jim Davis are unlikely partners in California Passage
23 June 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

In reviewing another of a member of the original "Dallas" cast's previous movie and/or TV appearances in chronological order, I once again watched another of Jim Davis' Republic movies from 1950. In this one, he reteams with Forrest Tucker from Hellfire and Brimstone and director Joseph Kane from the latter and The Savage Horde. He's been both a good guy and a bad guy and here, well, I'll just leave it to you to find out which he is if you ever get the chance to watch on Netflix Streaming which is where I found this but I'll say that as a partner of Tucker in a gambling joint, he doesn't get much trust from him. Written by James Edward Grant who would frequently also create many John Wayne vehicles, this is a fine western rich in both characterization and action. So on that note, I'll just say I highly recommend California Passage. P.S. When Davis' character meets the leading lady Adele Mara, he initially mistakingly addresses her as a Miss Wentworth before she corrects him by saying her name is Beth Martin. That made me chuckle a little since I knew that on "Dallas", there was a character named Rebecca Wentworth who was Pam and Cliff Barnes' mother.
