Video of the Week: “Across the Wide Missouri”

12/01/15 EDIT: Another one bites the dust. Sorry about that!

This week’s video provides a look – a really quick look – at Timothy’s first official film appearance. It’s Across the Wide Missouri (1951), directed by William Wellman. Fast-forward to 35:06 and you’ll see Tim’s grand film debut – as a corpse. But like I say, don’t blink or you’ll miss it!

Tim spoke several times in interviews about his escapades during the making of the film in Durango, Colorado, involving director Wellman and the film’s star, Clark Gable. This was also silent Western star Jack Holt‘s final film. Enjoy!
