I don't think I've noticed this before.... But I am watching the Great Filling Station Robbery, where the guys hide in the trunk, and i am noticing Mr. Carter ( who brings in Jimmy) sure looks and sounds a lot like Mr. O'Malley in Convicts at Large. Not sure if the character's name will be listed at the end... Curious, curious... Anybody else notice this??

Just noticed in my Definitive AGS reference book, it is the same. Willis Bouchey was his name. How I never noticed this is beyond me, but it's as clear as the nose right on my face!
Sorry to be inept!

Willis Bouchey also played 2 other roles on TAGS; Fletch Roberts, the man who brings the archery equipment in, 'Back To Nature,' and, Mr. Brady, Inspector Case's supervisor in, 'The Inspector.'

I always wonder why O'Malley rides the bus when he goes out of town.  He's got money, you know.  Remember, Floyd or Barney or somebody pointed that out.  Plus, he has that cabin (hunting camp?), in addition, I'm assuming to his usual residence.  I'm not sure where that is.  Does anybody know?

You'd think a guy who was in the chips would drive a fancy auto rather than riding the bus. But maybe he didn't want to bother with driving.  Any thoughts?

 

I had a good friend in college whose parents had never owned a car.  They took buses or cabs everywhere they travelled.  This was in the late 60's.

Also, I grew up near Gary, Indiana, which at that time(1950's and 60's) was a huge steel mill town.  My father was a bus driver, and I remember him telling me how many of his passengers did not own their own automobiles.  Different era I guess. 

I've wondered about that too, TC. I'm thinking that O'Mally caught the bus back and forth to the Raleigh airport when he traveled, as he didn't want to leave his Caddy in the long-term parking lot.

He also played a judge on Perry Mason, it would be interesting to see how many actors played judges on that program...the list would be long. You could usually count on Willis Bouchey playing a good character.

I was watching the same episode this afternoon.  Yes, Mr. Carter and Mr. O'Malley is the same person.  His name is Willis Bouchey.

He(Mr. Bouchey) plays a Union Colonel in the movie "Horse Soldiers" starring John Wayne and William Holden.  First movie I ever saw at a drive-in!  1960.  Ding dong--ding dong!  (If you have seen the movie you'll understand!)  :)

Watch out now, stagnation.  Don't give us too much information about your history at the drive-in movies!! 

Trust me, it ain't as if I was there with one of the "Fun Girls"!!  :)

Even a "Fun Girl" couldn't distract me from a John Wayne movie. I study him. Wanna' here me take off on him? Close yer eyes, here goes, "Alright, Pilgram, now get on your horse."

Sounds more like Edward G. Robinson to me!!  :)
