Howdy Manco!!

Thurston Hall was an American actor that appeared in over 250 films between 1915-1957. He appeared in films like, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and At Dawn I Die, but will probably be best remembered as .Mr Schuyler on the ole 50's t.v. series, Topper.

Max Steiner was one of the most well known music composers in Hollywood. He was a multi Academy Award winner and worked on literally hundreds of films. He often teamed with John Ford and William Wyler. He composed the scores for such films as Casablanca, Sergeant York and Gone With The Wind, to mention just a few.

Dimitri Tiomkin was another of the great Hollywood music composers. He was awarded 4 Academy Awards for his music and scores, including Giant, High Noon, Duel In The Sun, The War Wagon, Rio Bravo. He was nominated for the Oscar 22 times for his work in film.

Charles McGraw was one of those Character actors that you love to hate. First appearing in 1942 in The Killers, he went on to appear as Kirk Douglas' gladiator trainer in Spartacus, The Birds and in many westerns like Joe Dakota. He almost always played a tough rancher, cop, or gangster of some sort. With his gravelly voice and bullying demeanor, he made the viewer want to punch him out or bend a gun barrel over his head.

Chuck Roberson was a character actor and stunt man for over 30 years in film. He was a favorite of John Ford and was John Wayne's stunt double for many years and appeared in The Big Country, The Alamo and Welcome To Hard Times in small roles. He was also a regular on the t.v. series, Swamp Fox.

Margaret Field was a b-movie sci-fi actress in the 50's and appeared in films like, Captive Women, The Man From Planet X. She also appeared in several t.v. westerns like Wagon Train, The Virginian and Range Rider. She is probably best remembered as the mother of Academy Award winning acress Sally Field by her first marriage and the wife of western actor Jock Mahoney.
