Kit Carson, Action-filled story peopled with many great characters, beautifully played by some excellent actors, all make this a very watchable movie.
It had been years since I saw Jon Hall and I understand why he was as popular as he was but don’t understand why he’s relatively unknown now.
Hall played the title character and Dana Andrews was an excellent John C. Fremont, both real historical people.
Ward Bond again showed why he was and is still popular: Great actor and very personable.
Harold Huber was another superb character actor, one of those Hollywood standbys without whom movies just couldn’t be made. Here he puts on a quite good Spanish accent, and his character is a strong and necessary partner to the Carson character.
Lynn Bari was, as usual, lovely, but she too played a strong character.
There were just too many excellent players to name them all. For now, just know it will be worth your time to see this “Kit Carson,” wherever you can find a copy. I found mine at Kanopy, a service of many public libraries.
