Just saw at Laura’s Miscellaneous Musings that actor-dancer James Mitchell passed away at 89. He appeared in a number of musicals, dancing his way through stuff like The Band Wagon (1953) and Oklahoma (1955) — and he’s known to a lot of folks for his almost 10 years on All My Children.
But Mr. Mitchell was also in one of my all-time favorite Westerns, Colorado Territory (1949) with Joel McCrea. (That’s him on the left.) He appeared with McCrea again the next year in Stars In My Crown. And he’s also in the incredible Anthony Mann film noir Border Incident (1949).
