Howdy Manco!!

Viola Barry was a silent screen actress, active between the years 1911-1920. She did appear in a couple of westerns, such as The Ranchero's Revenge and Ace Of The Saddle.

Lane Chandler first appeared back in the 30's as a leading man in B-westerns,but began to be typecast as a sidekick in innumerable westerns, including 2 with John Wayne. In the 50's and 60's, he moved into television with several appearances on Gunsmoke and Lawman and many of the other t.v. westerns of the day. He retired in the 60's, due to his many real estate investments.

Don Diamond will be best remembered for the 2 t.v. series, he co-starred in. He played "Crazy Cat" , on the t.v. series F Troop and was the sidekick to Bill Williams in the 50's series, The Adventures Of Kit Carson.

Dennis Weaver first drew attention, with his role of Chester Goode for 9 years on the long running t.v. series, Gunsmoke. He next took on the role of McCloud, on the 70's t.v. series based on Coogan's Bluff. He appeared in another short lived series titled Stone and was involved with the t.v. series, Wildfire, when he passed away., but I think he will probably be best remembered as the star of Steven Spielburg's first film, Duel, which was a film about a businessman, being chased by a psychotic truck driver.

Ken Clark appeared in a couple of westerns like, A Man Called Sledge and A Gunman Called Nebraska, but was probably better known for his appearances on Colt .45, Sugarfoot and many other of the t.v. westerns during the 50's and 60's. He also appeared in a B-horror film titled, Attack Of The Giant Leeches.

John Drew Barrymore will probably be best remembered as the son of famed actor John Barrymore and the father of actress Drew Barrymore. He appeared in The Sundowners and High Lonesome and also in several Gunsmoke episodes and a few other t.v. appearances. Due to drug and alcohol problems, he became somewhat of a recluse and was even replaced in a Star Trek episode because he failed to show up for the part.

Bruce Dern doesn't just play villains, he plays villains with a quirky psychotic personality. He first appeared in Wild River and has appeared in dozens of films and t.v. westerns since, like Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte, Hang'um High, Harry Tracy, Support Your Local Sheriff, Last Man Standing and Hard Ground. He is one of the few men to ever kill John Wayne in film, which he did in The Cowboys and make a fool out of Kirk Douglas in the film Posse. He's the last guy you ever want to see, with a chain saw in his hands!! One of the best of the best deviated villains ever in film.

Michael Greyeyes is a Canadian born Plains Cree Indian. He has appeared in about a dozen films, but it is his made for t.v. films like Geronimo in which he played "Juh' and the title role in T.N.T.'s Crazy Horse that have brought him fame.

Ed, you're right about the movie Duel. The never explain Why the truck is dogging Dennis Weaver, and you never see the driver. And every time Dennis thinks he's in the clear, the truck shows up! Great movie!

Bruce Dern is good at playing creepy characters. If you ever get a chance, check him out in the sci-fi film Silent Running. And he could do comedy, too. I like him in the Tom Hanks movie The 'burbs, as the Vietnam vet with a screw loose.
