The Mexican Señiorita, Her Deranged Brother and the Federal Dick

Jason Nelson Robards was born in 1892 and acted in well-over 200 movies between 1921 and a final appearance on television in September of 1963 that was broadcast a few months after his death. He is possibly the only actor who is known today by a different name than he used on his credits for all of his acting career. . . . A name that he never anticipated up to his passing.

Jason Robards, 1892-1963 had a son named Jason Nelson Robards Jr. who also began acting, and who became more famous than his father. During the years that they both were acting, they were both credited as Jason Robards. After the death of Jason Robards the father, with the younger Robards attaining near super-star status, the world continued remembering his famous son as Jason Robards, and the original Robards actor as Jason Robards Sr.

I have not enjoyed the pleasure of watching all of the motion pictures and television shows featuring Jason Robards Sr., but of the ones I’ve seen this one is by far, in my humble opinion, one of his best performances ever.

In this Mexican smuggling airplane adventure Jason Robards is the bad guy . . . . No wait . . . . That isn’t correct . . . . . But he isn’t the good guy either. His performance is much more complicated and cannot be described in one word . . . . unless I use the word ‘excellent.’ He is the owner of a Mexican ranch and is involved with smuggling oil into the United States, with the help of an airplane pilot.

Lloyd Hughes is his airplane pilot accomplice, having flown with Jason Robards Sr. in ‘The Great War’ – World War One, which was about twenty years before this movie. The ace pilot/accomplice is actually a secret government agent trying to infiltrate the smuggling operation, but the smuggling gangsters believe that the pilot is a bad egg.

The secret government agent has a younger brother who thinks his older brother died in The Great War, and the younger brother tries to become a pilot and earn his wings, but is washed out when he fails to fly through a fierce thunder and lightning storm. The younger brother would also like to woo the young sister of Jason Robards Sr.’s character.

Crime, secret agents, U.S. Army maneuvers in Mexico and those wonderful flying machines combine to create an action adventure that stars one of Hollywood’s almost forgotten actors who was the father of an even more famous namesake. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

If you want to watch Jason Robards Sr. in his final screen appearance, wander over to Jimbo TV and watch The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, Secret Agent —»
