Howdy Manco!!

Victor Young was a Hollywood composer, arranger, violinist and conducter. He won an Academy Award for his score of, Around The World In 80 Days. Some of his other musical scores include, Samson And Delilah, A Man Alone, Golden Boy, For Whom The Bell Tolls, The Quite Man and Shane.

Rory Calhoun's career began, when he met Alan Ladd, while horseback riding. Ladd's wife, Susan, got Calhoun a 1 line part in an Laurel and Hardy film titled The Bullfighter. While attending a party at the Ladd's house, he was spotted by David.O.Selznik's employee, Henry Taylor, who was famous for changing actors names. Taylor promptly named him "Troy Donohue", but later changed it to Rory Calhoun. Calhoun's career spanned over 40 years and included films like, Yellow Tomahawk, Ride Out For Vengeance, River Of No Return, Apache Territory, The Saga Of Hemp Brown and many others. He also produced and starred in the popular t.v. series, The Texan. Much Later in his career, he appeared in several B-Horror films, like Motel Hell and others. His last film appearance was in the country music singer, George Strait film, Pure Country.
A little bit of trivia about Rory Calhoun. He was incarcerated in a boys reformatory, when he was 13 years old. He escaped , stole a revolver and robbed several jewelery stores and crossed state lines, which made it a "federal" crime. He was captured and sentenced to the penitentiary in Springfield MO. and then to San Quentin Calif, until he was released at the age of 21.

Kelo Henderson was raised on a ranch and became a ranch foreman, before venturing into film. He has appeared in several western films, like Gun Glory, Mercenaries Of The Rio Grand, and Pyramids Of The Sun God, but it the role of Ranger Clint Travis, on the 1957-1959 t.v. series, 26 Men, that he will be best remembered for.

Richard Anderson has always been one of the great supporting actors in Hollywood. He has appeared in many films during his long career, like Escape From Fort Bravo and the sci-fi film, Forbidden Planet, but it is his work in t.v. series, like The Big Valley, The Rifleman and other westerns that set him apart. He played a very spooky vampire in the pilot for Kolchak, Night Stalker, but it is probably his role of Oscar Goldman in both the t.v. series, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, that audiences will remember him best for.

Tom Reese was the subject of the "guess who" trivia game on the forum, a few months ago. This guy has taken a big hulking build and a craggy face, with a large nose and turned it into a 50 year career in films. He has appeared as a villian in every t.v. western and detective series on, since the late 50's. It seems that in every western series, I ever watched, there was either Mickey Simpson or Tom Reese as a bad guy. This guy has been beat up and shot by every western hero in film. Having said that, I will remember him best as the 2nd gunman that Walter Brennan hired to shoot James Garner, in Support Your Local Sheriff. He's the one, who stopped Suzanne Pleshette( I think), as she was taking lunch to Garner, told her it would only be a minute and was shot in the Sheriff's office by Garner, then stumbled back out and fell on the boardwalk. All I can tell ya, is whutever ya do, DON'T loan this guy yer hankerchief!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keith Carradine is the middle son of legendary actor John Carradine and brother to the late David and Robert Carradine. First appearing in the film, A Gunfight in 1971, he has become one of the finest western actors in Hollywood. He appeared as Big Foot Wallace in the 3rd or 4th Lonesome Dove mini-series, Dead Man's Walk and as Tom Selleck's pardner, Chet Rollins, in Selleck's remake of Monte Walsh and as one of the Younger brothers in , The Long Riders. He has just finished up the film, The Tin Star, which is in post production now. He was the History Channel's host on the western series, The Wild West, until he turned it over to his older brother David, to take on another t.v. series. He is as good as it gets these days and if anybody in Hollywood has any brains, they should use Keith in as many westerns as possible, while he's still young enough!!!!!!!!!!

Kelo Henderson was a heck of a spinner. Watch how he handled those pistols on 26 Men!

I grew up watching Richard Anderson as Oscar Goldman on the Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman, but he made a career of playing villains before that. One of his early roles was as the prosecuting officer of the kangaroo court martial in Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory.

Early in the first season of Kung Fu, Kieth Carradine played a younger version of brother David's Kwai Chang Caine. He also played Wild Bill Hickok in the first season of Deadwood (until he's killed by Jack McCall at Tom Nutall's #10 Saloon during that ill fated poker game).

Howdy Tinhorn!!

The only western I recall, that Dustin Hoffman ever appeared in was, Little Big Man. Connie Stevens appeared a couple of times on Cheyenne, as Patience Preston and on Maverick as Frankie French, but who can forget Brooke Bundy in Firecreek with Jimmy Stewart, Henry Fonda, Inger Stevens, Dean Jagger, Ed Begly, James Best, Morgan Woodward and J.C. Flippin. She also appeared on Rawhide, Wagon Train and in the film, A Man For Hanging with Peter Breck.
