Pic of the Day: “Alaska Seas” revisited

By my dear husband’s special request, today’s pic is another shot from Alaska Seas (1954), directed by Jerry Hopper. Timothy’s boat repairman Wycoff is angrily demanding the $920.60 owed him by Matt Kelly (Robert Ryan).

“I did a show with Bob Ryan once,” said Tim in the Grover Lewis interview. “He was great, but he wouldn’t allow a lot of takes. ‘This is it,’ he’d say.”  Timothy and Ryan appeared together again in one of Ryan’s last films, John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973).

  1. Welcome to The LAMB. You’ve got a great looking site here. I’m sad to say that I had never heard of Timothy Carey before, but it looks like he had quite a career. Is there a particular film of his that you would recommend as his best?


    • Thanks very much! Well, you certainly can’t go wrong with the films he made with Stanley Kubrick, The Killing (1956) and Paths of Glory (1957). I’m also particularly fond of his performances in Finger Man (1955), Bayou (1957), The Boy and the Pirates (1960), and The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976). He did lots of TV work as well. You’re in for a treat! Thanks again!
