Video of the Week: “Bayou/Poor White Trash”

This week’s video presents the final showdown between Timothy and Peter Graves in Bayou (1957), re-edited and re-released in 1961 as Poor White Trash. Ulysses has come to take Marie (Lita Milan) away, and no sugar-talking dirty punk Yankee city fella from swell country is going to stop him!

This scene really could have benefited from the classic Star Trek fight scene music, I think. The following year, Tim would duke it out on the small screen with Graves’ brother, James Arness, on Gunsmoke.
