Howdy Manco!!

Glenn Strange arrived in Hollywood as a member of a singing group, The Wranglers. He made his film debut in 1930 and appeared in literally hundreds of matinee films and in every cowboy star's films you can name, including Hopalong Cassidy, The Cisco Kid, and even John Wayne's Red River. He played Butch Cavendish in the very first Lone Ranger film, who killed everybody but Clayton Moore. During the 40's he made several monster films, including playing Frankenstein, but it is the role of Sam Noonan, the barender on Gunsmoke for many years, that he will be best remembered for.

If you've ever seen the 1931 film, Frankenstein with Boris Karloff, then you know who Mae Clark was. She played Elizabeth, the bride of .Dr Frankenstein, who Boris Karloff chased in the film. She also appeared in the film, Public Enemy with James Cagney, that same year. She was the girl, who Cagney smashed a grapefruit in her face. Unfortunately, in the mid 30's, she scarred her face in an auto accident and was relegated to small parts until her last film in 1970.

Joaquin Cordero is a Mexican actor, that not many " gringos" are familiar with. He appeared in The Black Pirate in 1944 and has since made hundreds of Mexican films that are not seen in this country. He has also appeared in , The Hell Of Frankenstein, To Kill Is Easy, Smiles Of The City, but few that the western viewer would have seen.

Fess Parker made his film debut in 1950, but his role in the 1952 film, Springfield Rifle was the launching pad for his career. He next snagged the role in The Great Locomotive Chase and then Walt Disney tagged him for the starring role in the t.v. series, Davy Crockett. His next role would be his most famous, as Daniel Boone, on the long running 60's t.v. series, with Patricia Blair. Parker retired after 1974 and built the Fess Parker hotel, and eventually went into the wine making business, with his own vinyards.

Robert Culp showed up in the 50's, with his 1st t.v. series, Trackdown, as the Ranger, Hoby Gilman. He next took on the series, I Spy with Bill Cosby, then onto Hicky And Boggs as Boggs and finally, Greatest American Hero as F.B.I. agent Maxwell. He also starred in the controversial, Bob And Carol And Ted And Alice, along with Lee Marvin in, Great Scout And Cathouse Thursday. Culp appeared in many of the 50's and 60's t.v. westerns such as, The Rifleman, The Virginian, Bonanza and many more during his long career and it is difficult to say, which role he will be best remembered for.

Gary Clarke showed up in 1957, with appearances on Sky King, Laramie, The Tall Man and Gunsmoke, before landing the role of Steve on the long running t.v. series, The Virginian. Clarke left the series after only 2 years, reportedly over contract problems and continued to act into the 90's, but it for The Virginian, he will be best remembered for.

I know Julie Newmar doesn't have many Western credits, but you can't ignore her role in McKenna's Gold, especially the swimming scene! She was only to be topless, but she decided to it completely nude. She started her career as a dancer, and later started getting speaking roles. She had the starring role in the series My Living Doll in 1964, but she is best remembered as the original Catwoman on Batman.
