Howdy Manco!!

Michael Ansara is actually a Syrian, although he has portrayed Mexicans, Spaniards and American Indians during his career. He was cast as Cochise in the t.v. series, Broken Arrow, which led to his own series, Law Of The Plainsman as Marshal Sam Buckhart. He has appeared in several of the classics, like The Ten Commandments, The Robe and The Greatest Story Ever Told. At one time he was married to I Dream Of Jeannie star, Barbara Eden.

Actress Jean Willes was a platinum blond, who is famous for her roles in film as the eternal floozie, dancehall girl, saloon owner. I don't know who played the role more often, Constance Ford or Jean Willes. I watched her in Lawman yesterday and she was a conniving saloon owner convicted of murder and in a episode of The Westerner, she was also a saloon owner with a heart of gold. When the networks needed an actress to portray a hard edged woman in a western, they almost always turned to her.

Claudia Cardinale is an Italian/Tunisian actress, that never really tried to break into Hollywood, although she was considered to be a 1960's sex symbol. She has appeared in inummerable Italian and French films. She appeared in Circus World, The Pink Panther and Son Of The Pink Panther and in 2 great western films, Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West and The Professionals with Lee Marvin and Burt Lancaster. It's hard to believe that she's 74 years old.

Robert Walker .jr is the son of actor Robert Walker and Jennifer Jones. Although he has never achieved the success of his father, he has appeared in Easy Rider and The War Wagon with the Duke. His most memorable role, for me, was as Charlie, in the original Star Trek episode, Charlie .X, in which he played a human child that had been rescued from a spacecraft wreck by very powerful aliens and with just his telepathic powers, he commandeered the Enterprise and gave Capt. Kirk fits!!!!!!!!

What I like about Michael Ansara is he has that deep, monotone voice that is just so menacing! Not only was he perfect as the Klingon Kang on 3 different Star Trek series, but as the voice of Mr. Freeze on Batman: The Animated Series.
