Dick Foran, who died in Panorama City the year I first got laid. Dick Foran, Singing Cowboy who really could sing. Dick Foran, strong actor before and after he put down the reins. Dick Foran, all that, in a film with Humphrey Bogart!
He plays the sweet guy with a chance at a good life with a good job and a good girl. He’s also the guy who seems like he’s about to fuck it all up — he’s drinking beer at night and hanging out with tramps.
The twist (for his character’s arc at least) is that he avoids all the nasty stuff.
Nope. He misses all that. Bogart takes the wrong road.
Tough, decent and defiant to the end.
Dick Foran! What a guy!
