Andy Devine came to Hollywood after a successful college football career. The heavyset actor was inevitably typecast in comic roles, often as sidekick for Roy Rogers and other cowboy stars of the 1940s. His most important role was probably that of Buck the stagecoach driver in Stagecoach (1939), providing comic relief during the tense ride across Monument Valley to Lordsburg with Apaches on the warpath. “If there is anything I do not like, it’s driving a stagecoach through Apache country,” Buck mutters at one point.
