Life Story of Jim Davis

Tall, rangy Jim Davis spent much of his early career in westerns mainly at Republic Pictures. The Missouri-born and -raised Davis' relaxed, easygoing manner and Southern drawl 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).

Significant features of Jim Davis

Wendell Corey and Jim Davis in Ein Schuß und 50 Tote (1959)

In April 1981 the writers of Dallas (1978) decided not to write his death into the storyline right away. They initially thought about replacing him with another actor, but out of respect decided that only Davis should play Jock Ewing. Jock was kept alive on the show (he was down in South America drilling for oil) until early 1982 when it was learned that he died in a plane crash.

For many years Davis suffered a series of migraine headaches which led to his terminal brain cancer that eventually claimed his life.

Jim Davis, Preston Foster, and House Peters Jr. in Three Desperate Men (1951)

Didn't have to walk too far in between scenes while doing Dallas (1978) prior to suffering his own health problems, but was determined to keep working until he was unable to. He had to leave the show when the cast (and himself) knew that he was dying in 1981 (though he almost appeared in every episode of the 1980-81 season).
