Movie Clip

Kit Carson (1940) - Horizon Fever Efficient framing and opening from screenwriter George Bruce and director George B. Seitz, introducing Jon Hall as the title character, Ward Bond his man “Ape” and Harold Huber as Lopez, expressing attitudes both wise and nasty, then cracking action as the Shoshone attack, in independent producer Edward Small’s Kit Carson, 1940.
Kit Carson (1940) - They'd Kinda Like Them Brass Buttons Clever scene by director George Seitz, Raymond Hatton (said to have appeared in 500 movies) as host Bridger advises bathing Jon Hall (title character) and crew (Ward Bond, Harold Huber) about the offer from Fremont (Dana Andrews as the historical character) and Terry (“Lone Ranger” Clayton Moore), Lynn Bari in the neighboring tub, in producer Edward Small’s Kit Carson, 1940.
Kit Carson (1940) - Don't Hurry So Fast Producer Edward Small getting his money’s worth in Monument Valley (even if the story takes place along the distant Oregon Trail), Dana Andrews as (historical figure) Captain Fremont wants to hurry the wagon train, civilian Clayton Moore obeying until Jon Hall (title character) and his team (Ward Bond, Harold Huber) show up to take the trail guide jobs they at first refused, Lynn Bari the affronted Miss Murphy, in Kit Carson, 1940.
Hurricane, The (1937) - Terangi Jailed white-guy Terangi (Jon Hall) takes a stab at rejoining his wife's ship as it passes his Polynesian island prison in John Ford's The Hurricane, 1937.
Hurricane, The (1937) - Let Me Save You! Terangi (Jon Hall) offers rescue to Father Paul (C. Aubrey Smith) and Mme. DeLaage (Mary Astor), having already tied his wife (Dorothy Lamour) and daughter to a tree in the storm sequence from John Ford's The Hurricane, 1937.
