Bill Caress is in the white shirt, acting out some sort scene….FEAR? The over acting was obvious but necessary in the old motion pictures …the  reasons being  silent movies or bad sound.

Bill Caress is having a bad day. According to his great nephew Dave Chestnut, he worked in many motion pictures. His years of experience on the 101 Ranch show helped him as an actor.

From cowboys to comedy but comedy was his forte. On the 101 he did a comedy act with a burro, plus clowning.  He was very funny.

Bill Caress is on the right. Really don’t know what this scene is about, but it looks like someone is going to get hit with a rolling pin. I am guessing that Bill started his career in acting in 1926,or 27.
