A SMILING ROBERT RYAN

One of my favorite westerns, THE PROUD ONES (1956) stars Robert Ryan and Virginia Mayo ( and Jeffrey Hunter).
A smiling Robert Ryan is a rare phenomenon,his film characters usually grim,dramatic,cynical, obsessive – but never light.
Robert’s character, ‘Cass Silver’, in The Proud Ones is a dramatic one,but it’s nice to see this posed shot with Virginia Mayo who plays ‘Sally’. The relationship of Cass and Sally in the film is strong and has lasted for some time. Despite all that is going on in Cass’s life, the two of them are a couple and support each other in everything. Quite unusual for a western couple.
