Jim Davis

Biography

Date of Birth 26 August 1909, Edgerton, Missouri, USA Date of Death 26 April 1981, Northridge, California, USA (multiple myeloma) Birth Name Marlin Davis Height 6' 2½" (1.89 m) Tall, rangy Jim Davis spent much of his early career in westerns, mainly at Republic Pictures. His relaxed, easygoing manner and Southern drawl (although he was born and raised in Missouri) easily fit most moviegoers' image of the cowboy, and Republic put him in a ton of them over the years (the fact that, unlike a lot of movie cowboys, he looked right at home on a horse didn't hurt, either). He alternated between good-guy and villain roles, one of his better ones being that of the devious, murderous fur trapper working for Kirk Douglas' competition in The Big Sky (1952). He is best known, however, for his role as Ewing family patriarch Jock in the long-running TV series "Dallas" (1978).
