Jock Ewing

Jim Davis played John Ross "Jock" Ewing I on Dallas from 1978 until his death in real life in 1981.  Jock Ewing was by far one of the most strong and powerful characters the series ever saw.  Much of the early success of the show can be attributed to him.  His character built the foundation on which the show grew, even long after his death.  Click here.  Above is the original title shot used to commemorate him at the end of the episode in which Jock Ewing died.

Jock Ewing was just as aggressive and power oriented as JR, but he could never be considered as evil as JR was at times.

The Ewings always gathered togehter at Southfork in the evening for a drink.  Many memorable scenes took place in this setting.

This is Jock with his son Ray Krebbs.  When Jock was away at World War II, he got a little to lonely, and hence, Ray Krebbs.  JR always saw Ray as a half-breed.

Here Jock is arriving at Southfork in his Lincoln.  His license plates rightfully read "EWING 1".  The very same Lincoln can still be seen today on display at the Southfork Ranch.

Jock and JR have a little talk at Ewing Oil.

Here Jock is leaving for Colorado to visit his first wife Amanda who has been mentally ill for years.

: The scene is hauntingly familiar to Jock's final scene later in the series.

Jock is visiting Amanda at the mental institution in Colorado.  She does not recognize him.  She then gets a glance of Bobby and she thinks he is Jock.  It is somewhat of a sad scene.

Almost every morning the Ewings would enjoy breakfast outside on the patio at Southfork.
