Howdy Manco!!

Ben Welden was a short, balding, rotund actor, who appeared in over 120 films during his career, which spanned 1930-1966. He often played 'heavies", who were slightly dim witted and comical.
He appeared in The Big Sleep, The Fighting Seabees and several times on The Adventures Of Superman. He had a semi-regular role on The Public Defender.

Russell Hayden was voted one of the top ten cowboy actors during the 1930's. He appeared as Lucky Jenkins in several of the Hopalong Cassidy films. He also starred with Charles (the Durango Kid) Starrett in several films and along with Jackie Coogan, he co-starred in the t.v. series, Cowboy G-Men. He also produced and directed a couple of western series, like 26 Men and Judge Roy Bean.

Lash LaRue was always one of my favorite cowboy heros. Dressed all in black with a fancy 2 gun rig and the 18 foot long Bull whip, he was something to behold for a child. Starting his career in the mid 40's as a sidekick to Eddie Dean, he was cast in dozens of his own B-westerns films, like Law Of The Lash, Return Of The Lash, King Of The Bullwhip, he was cast as the Cheyenne Kid, with his trusty sidekick Fuzzy Jones, played by Al St John. When the B-westerns played out, he became Sheriff Johnny Behan on The Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp. He also appeared in several other t.v. westerns, like Judge Roy Bean. During a time, when the western actors could pick up a little extra money by making appearances at movie theaters, Lash would show up at the theaters during the 40's and 50's and perform tricks for the kids with his Bullwhip. He appeared all the way through 1990 in film and believe it or not, it was Lash LaRue, who taught Harrison Ford to use the Bullwhip in the Indiana Jones films!! A bit of trivia about Lash, he looked and spoke so much like Humphrey Bogart, that an actress once asked him if he were any relation to the star. When Lash replied, I don't think so, the actress asked" well, did your mother ever meet Humphrey Bogart???????"

Gary Farmer is a Canadian born actor, whose first appearance in film was in the series Spirit Bay. He also appeared in the t.v. series Forever Knight as the Police Captain. He has appeared in several films like Pow Wow Highway, Smoke Signals, but will be best remembered as the Indian guide "Nobody" in the Johnny Depp western, Dead Man.
