Pic of the Day: “Beware! No Trespassing” revisited

Today we take another look at the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing”. It was first broadcast on November 1, 1952. Evil-doers Benton and Jardine (Robert Lowery) eagerly anticipate the execution of their dastardly plan that involves a tungsten mine.

Beware! No Trespassing - 1952

As I believe I’ve mentioned before, Lowery was the second actor to portray Batman (after a fellow named Lewis Wilson), in a 1949 serial. In 1942 he appeared in a “sex hygiene” training film for the U.S. War Department, warning against the dangers of venereal disease, with none other than the future Superman, George Reeves. Just use your super-powers, fellas!

Pic of the Day: “The Golden Wolf” revisited

Our pic for today takes us back to “The Golden Wolf,” the episode of Cowboy G-Men that first aired on September 27, 1952. Tim’s wolf hide rustler Jake Kirby battles with cowboy G-man Stoney Crockett (Jackie Coogan). I believe Crockett has just bit Kirby’s hand. Ouch.

It just occurred to me that Timothy would have made an awesome Lurch on The Addams Family. Not to take anything away from the great Ted Cassidy, mind you. It’s fun to think about the roles for Tim that might have been in some alternate universe. For instance, I think he would have been a great villain on Batman, and what an interesting Klingon he might have proved to be…

Pic of the Day: “The Secret Mission”

Today’s pic is from another of Tim’s six appearances on the low-budget Western series Cowboy G-Men. The episode is “The Secret Mission,” which first aired on October 4, 1952. Tim is the #1 henchman of bad guy Robert Lowery. Also in this scene are two of the most annoying child actors you’ll ever see. I’m not kidding.

Lowery appeared with Tim in three episodes of this series. He was a seasoned film actor by this point, and would have a long career in television, mostly in Westerns. He was also the second actor to portray Batman. Kind of resembles Clark Gable, doesn’t he?
