Other Cowboy Stars — Forrest Tucker in “Stagecoach to Fury”

October 3, 2011

Forrest Tucker projects such heavy intensity and solemnity in this role that it is nearly impossible to imagine him flourishing in the loony chicanery of his most famous role, that of Sargent O’Rourke on F-Troop.

“The Sarge should get a medal…for meddling!”  Not a fan.

Tucker started his film career with an auspicious role, swapping punches with Gary Cooper in the awesome 1940 William Wyler joint, “The Westerner.”  If you have not seen this film, I suggest that you make a positive step towards real change in your life and watch it tonight.

You don’t have to see “Stagecoach to Fury”, but it’s pretty cool.  The set-up is “Dangerous Hours” in a stagecoach station.  Bandits are holding the passengers of a stagecoach hostage until the gold shipment arrives…if it’s not already there!  As the hours tick by, we are treated to FLASHBACKS! of each of the characters.  Cool huh?

A nice film and a good role for this like-able seeming fella.
