Our video this week revisits the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing”. It was first broadcast on November 1,1952. Timothy and Robert Lowery are stirring up some trouble at a tungsten mine.
I’d like to express my gratitude to all the folks who are rescuing these obscure television shows from oblivion. Even considering the poor quality of some of the prints (like this one), it’s still worth it to have some of Tim’s earliest screen performances available to us. Thank you!
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.
Let’s kick off the week with some vintage Timothy from very early in his career. Our pic today is from the Cowboy G-Men episode “The Golden Wolf”. It was first broadcast on September 27, 1952, and is one of six episodes of that Saturday morning baby boomer staple in which he appeared. Wolf poacher and con man Jake Kirby is worried that the authorities will discover that he and his partner Gil Clement (Robert Lowery) have been selling the same recycled wolf pelts to unsuspecting suckers for ages.
Directing this episode was Reg Browne, a real jack-of-all-trades in the television industry – editor, director, writer, even bit actor. He also directed Tim in the CGM episode “Beware! No Trespassing” (11.1.52).
No dipping into the archives this week – we have a brand-new video for you! It’s the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing” in its entirety. It was first aired on November 1, 1952. Timothy’s henchman Benton and his boss Jardine (Robert Lowery) are stirring up some mayhem at a tungsten mine.
Series star Russell Hayden was one of the busiest Western film stars around in the 1930s and ’40s, carrying on the tradition on TV in the ’50s. He and fellow Western stars Roy Rogers and Dick Curtis were among the original investors and developers of Pioneertown in California, which has been used in countless movies and television programs.
Our pic for today revisits the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing,” which first aired on November 1, 1952. Timothy’s henchman Benton is imparting vital information to his boss (Robert Lowery) and fellow henchman (X Brands), and looking rather silly as he does so. Another shot of Tim that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.
Also look at the way the veins in his neck stick out. Tim certainly threw his entire physical being into his work.
This Friday’s pic revisits the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing”. It was first broadcast on November 1, 1952. Timothy’s henchman Benton is hoping there will be no hitch in his boss Jardine’s (Robert Lowery) evil plan.
It’s great to know that Tim was a part of so many baby-boomer cowboys’ and cowgirls’ Saturday morning TV adventures. A lot of these episodes have been released officially, but check the DVD Resources links to your right for more “unofficial” sources. And enjoy Jackie Coogan in his post-Chaplin, pre-Addams Family days.
Today’s pic is another from the Western television series Cowboy G-Men. The episode is “Beware! No Trespassing,” first broadcast on November 1, 1952. Tim and Robert Lowery are once again a couple of bad guys, this time causing trouble at a tungsten mine.
Tim appeared in six episodes of this series, and I do believe we’ve now covered all six here at the blog. Shortly after this shot, Tim and Lowery get into a bit of a scuffle, and the chin strap of Tim’s hat ends up in his mouth. Oops.
