Our pic of the day takes another long-overdue look at The Gunfight at Dodge City (1959), directed by Joseph M. Newman. Don Haggerty, Timothy, and Mauritz Hugo are Dodge City’s crooked lawmen, about to get their clocks cleaned by Bat Masterson (Joel McCrea).
Hugo arrived in the U.S. from Sweden at age fifteen and established himself as a reliable character over the ensuing years, especially in Westerns. He was fortunate enough to have lost his accent along the way, freeing himself from getting typecast in “ethnic” roles.
Heading off the work week is another look at The Gunfight at Dodge City (1959), directed by Joseph M. Newman and starring Joel McCrea as Bat Masterson. Tim is uncredited as Forbes, crooked deputy to crooked Sheriff Jim Regan (Don Haggerty). I’m fairly certain that’s Mauritz Hugo on Tim’s left.
This was another of Timothy’s film roles that helped fund the making of The World’s Greatest Sinner. McCrea’s son Jody appeared along with Tim in Bikini Beach (1964) and Beach Blanket Bingo (1965).
