Let’s Drink a Toast to Smokey’s Ghost

Charles Lafeyette, (yes, with an e after the f), King was born in Hillsboro, Texas in 1895. After serving in the Navy for almost a year during World War One, he became an actor in motion pictures instead of becoming a doctor like his father. After appearing in several silent comedies, he drifted into cowboy westerns, and become one of the best-loved bad guys in western adventures.

It seems that Charles King always battled the bottle and depression. On February 15, 1951, just six days before his fifty-sixth birthday, he walked into the living room of his home where his family was watching television. With tears streaming down his cheeks, he proclaimed, “I love you all, goodbye.” With that he turned, and went into the bathroom where he shot himself in the chest with his son’s 22caliber rifle.

As fate would have it, the bullet went cleanly through his body, never hitting anything of importance, and the wounds healed quickly. After that incident, he appeared in one more movie in a bit part, and several Gunsmoke television episodes, before dying of liver failure in 1957.

In this adventure Charles King is henchman Jake, doing the dirty work for his bosses who have murdered the owner of the Bar BX ranch and are now charging ranchers a pile of money to move their cattle through the Boulder Pass. Like in all of the cowboy movies that Charles King was in, the good guys get the best of him, but not before I see enough of his personality to make him the villain that I always love to watch, see if you don’t agree. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
