American actor Scott Forbes, who spent most of his formative days travelling throughout the world before settling down to a performing career, was seemingly groomed in the early stages of his career to be a "young Gregory Peck", whom Forbes resembled both physically and vocally. Consigned to action roles in such Warner Bros. films as Rocky Mountain (1950), Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison (1951) and Operation Pacific (1952), Forbes was afforded more in-depth characters on television: one of his best TV outings was as a Captain Queeg-like naval officer on "The Deep Six," a 1953 installment of NBC's Robert Montgomery Presents which in recent years has made the videocassette rounds in kinescope form. In 1957, Forbes was cast in the title role of Jim Bowie, a TV "gimmick western"--the gimmick being that Bowie preferred using his knife rather than his guns. The series (and its accompanying theme song) scored an immediate hit with the younger set, though several adult critics found the program crude and Forbes' interpretation of Bowie "uncouth." After Jim Bowie, Forbes was limited to character parts. By the '70s Scott Forbes had left acting for the more rewarding pursuit of owning and operating Studio One, a popular Hollywood nightclub.
