Howdy Manco!!

Iron Eyes Cody was NEVER an American Indian!!!!! His real name was Tony Decorti and he was of Italian and specfically Sicilian descent.. He took the surname of Cody, when he became an actor. He appeared in The Big Trail with John Wayne, Nevada Smith with Steve McQueen and A Man Called Horse with Richard Harris.. He was probably most famous for his role in the Keep America Beautiful program, where he is seen with a tear running down his cheek, when someone throws a piece of trash out of a moving car.

What more can be said about actor Marlon Brando??? He won his first Oscar for his performance in On The Waterfront. He went on to appear in A Streetcar Named Desire, One Eyed Jacks, The Appaloosa, Apocalypse now, The Superman films, The Godfather and more hits than I have room to list here. With his mumbling style of talking and his pure animal magnetism, he was box office magic. It was Jack Nicholson that said" when Marlon Brando dies, everybody moves up one"!!

Seems like we did this one already!! Kevin Hagan 's first regular role was on the 1950's t.v. series, Yancy Derringer. He went on to guest star in many of the t.v. series of the 50's and 60's and 70's, like Bonanza, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea and many others. He will probably be best remembered for his role of Doc Baker on Little House On The Prairie, although he played one of the meanest varmints ever in the film Shenandoah.

Jan Merlin is a character/supporting actor from the golden years of t.v. Classically handsome in the mold of Michael York, you would think he would have become a movie or t.v. hero, but he portrays a cold arrogance, that typecasted him as a cool, clever villain. A regular on the series, Rough Riders and the soap opera, Another World, Jan is 87 years old and is also a prolific author.

Robert "Bobby" Hoy was a stunt man, who doubled for such stars as, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas and many others, before moving into acting. He has appeared in Wild Wild West, Walker, Texas Ranger etc, but is probably best remembered for his role as Joe Butler in the t.v. series High Chaparral.
