Happy Birthday James Drury!


JamesDruryPortraitJames Drury is 82 years old today!  He acted in many things, but is best known for his role as the foreman at Shiloh ranch in The Virginian TV show (that is the role he is pictured in in the portrait above). I grew up watching him in Pollyanna (he’s also in Disney’s Ten Who Dared), he was in many other films and western TV shows, including playing small roles in The Rifleman, Cheyenne, Gunsmoke, and the little know show Black Saddle.

Why not watch a Virginian episode tonight to celebrate his birthday? Which episode would you recommend? Do you have a favorite?

    Wait, he’s in Pollyanna??? How do I not remember that?

      He’s the turn-of-the-century gentleman with the straw hat, who is the suitor of the housemaid. Quite different than his cowboy roles, but very well done. 🙂 You should watch it again! He’s quite funny!
