Richard Anderson 1926 – 2017

Better late than never, folks. Richard Anderson, Timothy’s co-star in Paths of Glory (1957) (two years later they both appeared in The Gunfight at Dodge City, though not together), passed away on August 31 (my birthday!) of this year at the age of 91. He was of course best known for his role as Oscar Goldman in The Six Million Dollar Man television series. Romeo Carey did get an interview with him a few years ago, thankfully. As today is Wednesday, the usual day for Video of the Week, here is Anderson with Timothy in the memorable court-martial scene from Paths. Rest well, Oscar.


Video of the Week: “Paths of Glory” trial scene

This week’s video puts Timothy front and center, literally. It features the questioning of Pvt. Ferol during the court-martial in Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory (1957). Also in the scene are Richard Anderson, Kirk Douglas, and Adolphe Menjou.

It was this scene that made me fall in love with Tim all those years ago. I’m fairly certain I’m not the only one, either.

Pic of the Day: “The Gunfight at Dodge City” revisited

Let’s start off the week with another gander at The Gunfight at Dodge City (1959). Timothy’s crooked deputy Forbes thinks he’s going to be privy to a meeting between his boss Sheriff Regan (Don Haggerty) and Bat Masterson (Joel McCrea), but he’s got another think coming.

Dodge City was directed by Joseph M. Newman, who directed Tim three years earlier in Flight to Hong Kong (1956). He also directed the sci-fi classic This Island Earth (1955). Also appearing in Dodge City are two of Tim’s previous co-stars, Charles Horvath (Francis in the Haunted House) and Richard Anderson (Paths of Glory).
