Howdy Manco!!

Bruce Cabot became a star with his role in the 1933 film, King Kong. He met John Wayne on the set of Stagecoach, for which Cabot auditioned for the part of Johnny Ringo and they became friends. He appeared in many of the Duke's films, like The War Wagon, Hellfighters, The Commancheros, The Green Berets, Hatari and several others.

Believe it or not, in 1934, Duncan Renaldo was arrested for illegally entering the U.S., but was pardoned by Franklin.D.Roosevelt. He appeared with Gary Cooper in, For Whom The Bell Tolls, but was relegated to B-films, when the part of the Cisco Kid came along. This series ran from 1950-1956 with his partner, Leo Carillo as Pancho and is the role for which he will always be remembered.

Elena Verdugo first appeared in film at the age of 6 years old in 1931. She starred with Gene Autry in The Big Sombrero in 1949. She co-starred on The Phil Silvers Show in the 50's and guest starred in many other sitcoms during her career.

James Gammon has been one of my favorite character actors for decades. He first appeared in Cool Hand Luke and Journey To Shiloh, then went on to star in some great films, like Major League, Silverado, The Milagro Beanfield War, The Sacketts, Wyatt Earp and Cold Mountain. Although he will probably be best remembered as the manager of the Clevelnd Indians in Major League, I will always remember him as the bandit leader in Silverado. This gravelly voiced actor just left us about a year ago.

I first saw Ryan O'Neal in the 50's t.v. series Empire/Redigo with Richard Egan and Terry Moore. He would go on to make the 1970 film, he will be best remembered for, Love Story, but along the way he made Paper Moon with his daughter, Tatum O'Neal, for which she became the youngest person to win the Academy Award. He also appeared in a very good western with William Holden, Wild Rovers. The 70 year old O'Neal has recently been diagnosed with stage II prostate cancer.

Clint Howard is the younger brother of actor/director Ron Howard, who we all remember as Opie on the ole Andy Griffith show and Happy Days. They are both sons of actor Rance Howard, a character actor, who appeared in every western on t.v. during the 50's and 60's. Clint's hit t.v. series was the 1967 series, Gentle Ben. He has appeared in many of his older brother Ron's films, like Cocoon, Grand Theft Auto, Backdraft etc. Although most will remember him from his hit t.v. series, I will always think of the original Star Trek episode, The Corbomite Maneuver, on which he guest starred as a very small child, before Gentle Ben.

Bruce Cabot I remembered first from King Kong, as Jack Driscoll, the romantic interest to Fay Wray. He was also Blofeld's henchman Bert Saxby in Diamonds Are Forever. He was in a lot Westerns as the heavy, such as in Angel and the Bad Man as Laredo Stevens or in Dodge City as Jeff Surrett.

The first thing I saw James Gammon in was Major League, and I laughed like crazy when he peed on Roger Dorn's (Corbin Bersen) contract. I also like in Silverado when Scott Glenn is acting like there's a big posse after the outlaw gang, he turn's to one of his men an say's "I think it's just a couple of guys out there, and this asshole's one of 'em!" He had a salty style and the deep gravelly voice. He was good as Charlie Goodnight in Streets of Laredo, too.

Also born on April 20: Veronica Cartwright, who played Jemima Boone in the first two seasons of Fess Parker's Daniel Boone series. When I was 8 years old I was kind of in love with her.
