Just saw Kip Niven (Rev. Tom Marshall) in a movie - "Dead Before Dawn." Also starring Cheryl Ladd. 1993
What is so interesting to me is the fact they filmed some scenes of this movie in the office building I was working in at the time in Kansas City. I remember looking out the large office windows as the camera crew was filming.
Kip Niven was from Kansas City, so it makes sense they would ask him to participate.
I was surfing the channels when I heard a familiar voice. It was Ivor Francis who appeared in the Waltons as Dean Beck and Professor Hoadly/Hoadley.
It was a TV show... er, a movie... er, a movie made from a TV show from the 70s. It was called 'The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West' and was made by combining 4 episodes of the short-lived TV show 'Dusty's Trail' starring Forrest Tucker and Bob 'Gilligan' Denver. It also featured Jeannine Riley and Lori Saunders (Petticoat Junction).
Ivor played a 'Mr. Howell' type (Gilligan's Island) who had hired Tucker and Denver to take him and his wife west. The TV show lasted just one season. I think I would have walked out on the movie.
(Ivor should have stayed on Walton's Mountain.)
