Jubal (1956) - Most Horses Is Better Than Humans First scene after the opening, in which rancher Shep (Ernest Borgnine) found Glenn Ford (title character) staggering out of the Wyoming woods, introducing Pinky (Rod Steiger), Sam (Noah Beery Jr.) and Carson (John Dierkes), in Jubal, 1956, directed by Delmer Daves, often cited as a Western treatment of Shakespeare’s Othello.
Plymouth Adventure (1952) - Hymns And Prayers Should have seen this coming, Captain Jones (Spencer Tracy) has been warning of the ways of sailors, comes home to the Mayflower drunk one evening, finding Dorothy Bradford (Gene Tierney), rescued by her husband (Leo Genn), still in port in England, in Plymouth Adventure, 1952.
Thing From Another World, The (1951) - That Thing's Alive! Barnes (William Self) takes over the watch and probably unwisely throws his electric blanket over the frozen alien, bringing Hendry (Kenneth Tobey), Carrington (Robert Cornthwaite) et al into action, in The Thing From Another World, 1951.
Left Handed Gun, The (1958) - He Is Death's Child From Leslie Stevens' script based on Gore Vidal's teleplay, the lyric in the theme by William Goyen, Paul Newman's Billy the Kid stumbles and mumbles and meets first Tom (James Best), then rancher Tunstall (Colin Keith-Johnston), in Arthur Penn's radical western The Left Handed Gun, 1958.
Abbott And Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1953) - Mr. Hyde Will Kill Him! All Boris Karloff, in the title role/s not occupied by the stars, and not a single joke, John Dierkes his assistant, ruminating on the motivations of himself and his alter ego, after committing a murder in turn-of-the-century London, in Abbot And Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, 1953.
Abbott And Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde (1953) - The Fat One Saw Me Bud and Lou are bumbling American cops fired from their professional-exchange gig with the London police force, and nobody will believe Lou, who’s just seen sly Boris Karloff turn from Hyde to Jekyll after a chase at the wax museum, in Abbot And Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, 1953.
Shane (1953) - The Sovereign State Of Alabama From director George Stevens, a key scene featuring none of his principals, merchant Grafton (Paul McVey) greets farmer Torrey (Elisha Cook Jr.), summoning courage before ranchers (Emile Meyer, John Dierkes) and their new hired gun (Jack Palance), marking Independence Day, in Shane, 1953.
Convicts 4 - I'm The One That's Dying Death row guards (Adam Williams, John Dierkes) showing some respect for inmate John Resko (Ben Gazarra) who's minutes from the chair, in writer-director Millard Kaufman's bio-pic Convicts 4, 1962.
