Above lobby card shows Ed Cassidy trying to restrain Scott who is pummeling perpetual baddie Dick Curtis. Since this was one of Scott's early starring efforts, he was being billed as "the Silvery Voiced Baritone".

Above, sidekick Harry Harvey Sr. and Fred Scott.  Harvey easily migrated to TV work, and was the town law officer helping Roy and Dale in the ROY ROGERS TV show.  He was also seen in various bit and supporting roles, and a couple of examples are: as manager Joe McCarthy in THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES (1942), the saga of Yankee baseball player Lou Gehrig (played by Gary Cooper); and as the doctor who was telling Jimmy Stewart about June Allyson's condition in THE GLENN MILLER STORY (1954).
