THE MAN FROM THUNDER RIVER MOVIE CAST: BILL "WILD BILL" ELLIOTT and ANNE JEFFREYSCast members Elliott and Jeffreys sign promotional still from the 1943 film Printed photograph signed: "Your peaceable/ friend/ "Wild" Bill Elliot" and "Anne Jeffreys" in grey ink. B/w, 10x8. Still from their film The Man from Thunder River (1943). BILL "WILD BILL" ELLIOTT (1903-1965, born Gordon Nance in Pattonsburg, Missouri) had over 240 movie appearances between 1925 and 1957, both credited and uncredited. But he's best known for playing two archetypal cowboys: the real-life "Wild Bill" Hickok and fictional Red Ryder.Elliott, who actually got his start in movies as an uncredited dancer, took the role of Hickok in the 1938 Columbia serial The Great Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok. He was so identified with Hickok, whom he played until 1942, that he was billed as Wild Bill Elliot for the remainder of his career. Elliott moved to Republic in 1943 and took up the role of Red Ryder, whom he played for another four years. By 1945, Elliott had apparently grown tired of the squeaky clean cowboys that Hollywood was churning out at that time and started producing his own, more realistic Westerns in the mold of William S. Hart, of whom Elliott was a longtime fan. He switched to modern dress and hardboiled detective roles in the 1950s. Trained in voice at an early age, ANNE JEFFREYS (1923-2017) had her first movie role in the tuneful Rodgers & Hart adaptation of I Married an Angel (1942). After appearing in a series of "B" westerns and crimer films, she turned to symphonic and stage work including Tosca, Street Scene and the Broadway musical My Romance. Jeffreys and her husband, Robert Sterling, appeared in the TV version of Topper, television's first fantasy sitcom (1953-1955). Corners rounded and creased. Slightly toned. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
