Kit Carson (1940, Jon Hall, Dana Andrews)



Filmed on location at the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona, Kit Carson is an action-packed Western based on the story of a real-life 19th-century scout and tracker. The strong cast is led by JON HALL and DANA ANDREWS as two men fighting hostile Indian tribes and for the affections of Dolores Murphy (LYNN BARI), while there’s also a rare opportunity to see TV’s The Lone Ranger (CLAYTON MOORE) unmasked.
