Tom Tully headshot

On March 17, 1954, actor Tom Tully visited his future brother-in-law, Ernie Caddel, in Roseville. Caddel was a successful businessman who operated Roseville’s Crockard Caddel Chevrolet dealership. His sister, the former Mrs. Ida Johnson, was set to wed the Hollywood actor later that summer.

According to the March 19, 1954, Roseville Press Tribune, Tully said, “that they plan a honeymoon trip to Europe or Africa or just about any spot in the world except the Hawaiian Islands.”

Tully had just returned from Hawaii, where he was on location for his film, “The Caine Mutiny,” and felt he’d seen enough of the islands to last a while. Tully played the role of Lt. Cmdr. William H. De Vreiss for which he earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination for the 27th Academy Awards in 1955.

Ernie Caddel was also a bit of a celebrity. He played football at Stanford University under legendary coach Pop Warner and enjoyed a career as a standout halfback in the National Football League with the Portsmouth, Ohio, Spartans who eventually moved from Portsmouth to Detroit, Michigan, to become the Detroit Lions. He led the 1935 Lions to their first NFL championship. He bought an interest in Roseville’s Crockard Chevrolet in 1945 and became the primary owner in 1959.

Tully’s 1954 marriage to Johnson was his third and her second, but it was the one that lasted. They were married until his death in 1982.
