Howdy Manco!!

Gerald Mohr began his career in radio, and took part in over 4000 plays before appearing in film. He was the voice of Detective Phillip Marlowe for several years and narrated several of the first Lone Ranger episodes. He appeared in several films, like Funny Girl, Gilda, The Magnificent Rogue and Sniper, but I remember him best from the innumerable guest star appearances he did in the t.v. westerns. He played Indians, Mexicans and villains on most of the series like Sugarfoot, Overland Trail, Maverick and an episode of Cheyenne, in which Clint Walker shot part of his ear off comes to mind. He bore a strong resemblance to Michael Pate, who also played many different nationalities in the westerns. He died in 1968, at the young age of 54.

We've talked about Buddy Baer before. He was a professional boxer, turned actor. He was the younger brother of Heavy weight champion Max Baer and the uncle of actor Max Baer .jr, who appeared as Jethro on the long running tv. series, The Beverly Hillbillies. Buddy appeared in The Flame Of Araby, Quo Vadis and also in film with the 3 stooges. He made many t.v. appearances on westerns, but the one that comes to mind was in an episode of Gunsmoke, titled Don't Mess With Chester. Buddy dragged Chester in the episode and Matt later beat Buddy up in a fight. Buddy was 6 feet 7 inches tall and was 46-7 in pro fights. He once knocked Joe Louis out of the ring, but was later disqualified and would've knocked James Arness over the moon!!

John Bromfield was what's known as "beefcake" in his early career. Tall, dark haired and good looking, he was cast to attract female viewers. He appeared in Sorry, Wrong Number, Easy To Love with Esther Williams and Revenge Of The Creature, in which Clint Eastwood also had one of his first bit parts in film. He would later be cast in the 50's t.v. series Sheriff Of Cochise, in which he played a modern day Sheriff and after a couple of seasons, the title was changed to U.S. Marshal and he was promoted to U.S. Marshall, who worked out of Phoenix. Bromfield retired from acting after that and took up commercial and charter boat fishing for a living.
