Rex Reason has died
(November 30, 1928 – November 19, 2015)
Rex Reason has passed away at 86. He’s best known for appearing in the great sci-fi picture This Island Earth (1955), but he’s in some solid 50s Westerns — Smoke Signal (1955), Raw Edge (1956) and Badlands Of Montana (1956, above) with Beverly Garland.
Beverly Garland made loads of films and a previous one to this had been in Killer Leopard with Johnny Sheffield in the Bomba The Jungle Boy series of fims.
Rex left the film business in the 60s to concentrate on property development.
He had a younger brother Rhodes Reason who we here in England remember well from the fifties TV series White Hunter. I can hear now the intro when the announcer would say in a dramatic voice ‘White Hunter With Rhodes Reason’
Rhodes Reason died in December 2014 so just a year earlier.
