A veteran of community theater and traveling stock companies, Rufe Davis developed into a fine bucolic comedy foil for such country & western radio entertainers as the Weaver Brothers and Elviry. Davis had struck out on his own as a solo comic, specializing in animal imitations and other "funny noises" by the time he was signed by Paramount Pictures in 1937. After a few seasons of small character roles, he moved to Republic, where he was cast as Lullaby Joslin in the Three Mesquiteers Westerns, remaining with the series until 1942. Active until 1970, Rufe Davis is best known to the TV generation as railroad engineer Floyd Smoot on Petticoat Junction.
