Pic of the Day: “Across the Wide Missouri”

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting Tim’s stellar, unforgettable film debut in William Wellman‘s Across the Wide Missouri (1951)!

Across the Wide Missouri

Long story short: Tim hitchhiked to Colorado and finagled his way onto the set and into the film. He’s lying there in the stream soaking wet, freezing, shaking, and his teeth are chattering. Wellman hollers at an assistant, “Keep that jerk still, he’s supposed to be dead!” Well – you gotta start somewhere, right?

Isn’t it great how even though you can’t see his face, it’s still unmistakably him?
