Jim Davis does another great villainous turn in Duel at Apache Wells
17 July 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Once again, I went to Netflix streaming and found another Jim Davis western he made for Republic Pictures and director/producer Joe Kane. This time he's Dean Cannary, a ruthless owner of the waters of the title place. He's at war with the elderly Wayne Shattuck (Harry Shannon) who previously fired him. Good thing his son, Johnny (Ben Cooper), has returned home to help him in the fight. I'll stop there and just say that I very much enjoyed another one of these old-fashioned oaters from the now-defunct Republic especially when Davis was on screen with his creepy smile. Made him perfect as the one who eventually portrayed J.R. Ewing's dad! As always, he wears his western boots well. Both Cooper and Shannon give all they got, acting-wise, against him. I also liked Anna Maria Alberghetti as Anita, the woman who loves Johnny but may have to marry Cannary if he gets his way. So on that note, Duel at Apache Wells gets a recommendation from me. P.S. Since I always like to cite when a player from my favorite movie, It's a Wonderful Life, is in another one, here it's Argentina Brunetti-Mrs. Martini there-who plays the housekeeper of the Shuttucks, Tia Maria, here. Her presence is charming enough when on screen.
