  • Burly 6'2", 200 pound Bob Reeves, a Texan, was a rodeo champion and stunt double at Universal until a prominent role in the action-packed serial The Great Radium Mystery (1919) paved the way for a starring series of 2-reel westerns. A bit bland as an action lead, Reeves nevertheless worked steadily through the 1920s for small Gower Gulch outfits like Cactus Features and Anchor. Reeves vehicles such as Cyclone Bob (1926), Desperate Chances (1926), Fighting Luck (1926) and Iron Fist (1926) had no production values whatsoever, suffered from nondescript direction (often old hacks like J.P. McGowan), and were saddled with amateurish supporting casts. But they almost always offered non-stop action and were usually filmed on locations in real-life California villages. Unfortunately, Hollywood suffered a glut of inexpensive western fare in the mid 1920s, and Reeves was demoted to minor supporting roles by the time talkies came around. He continued in films for another three decades or so, playing scores of henchmen, cops, security guards, or simply a face in the crowd, rarely billed but always a welcome presence in films ranging from The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1939; he played a policeman) to Canadian Mounties vs. Atomic Invaders (1953; as a bartender). Bob Reeves died of a heart attack in his Los Angeles home in 1960.
