Been watching a bunch of Johnny Mack Brown's movies lately. Enjoyed them. Brought back the days of the Saturday movie matinee for me. Good clean fun where the good guy is a good guy, the bad guys are bad and they got their comeupance in the end. And a great cast of feature players like Myron Healey, Terry Frost, Marshall Reed, Lane Bradford, Lee Roberts, as well. Happy birthday, Johnny.

Richard Arlen had a long career. He went into acting after WWI, when he was a pilot in the Royal Canadian Flying Corps (he did not see combat). He got his big break in William Wellman's Academy Award winning film Wings. In 1929, he co-starred with Gary Cooper in The Virginian. He played in various movies an TV shows from 1921 to 1976, when he died of emphysema.

Nathan Juran was a writer, art director (he won an Oscar for art direction for How Green Was My Valley), and director. He directed a variety of movies and TV shows, from bad sci-fi to good fantasy (he directed Attack of the 50 Foot Woman as well as The 7th Voyage of Sinbad), war movies (Hellcats of the Navy), and Westerns (Gunsmoke, Tumbleweed, and Drums Across the River).

Richard Farnsworth started in the 1930s as a stuntman, and later moved into acting, mostly as a uncredited bit player in movies like gone With the Wind, Red River, Mighty Joe Young, The Ten Commandments, and Spartacus. He didn't receive a screen credit until 1963. He played in many TV Westerns, and was nominated for 2 Oscars (Best Supporting Actor for 1979's Comes A Horseman, and Best Actor for 1999's The Straight Story). He was diagnosed with terminal bone Cancer in 1999, and committed suicide the following year.

Yvonne De Carlo started as a nightclub singer and dancer, and later went on into acting, appearing in various movies before taking the role she's most famous for, Lily Munster.

Don Stroud has been acting since 1967, when he made his debut in the Doris Day Western/comedy The Ballad of Josie. He later played one of Robert Duvall's "hunting party" in Joe Kidd. He's probably best known for playing Capt. Pat Chambers in the TV series Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer with Stacey Keach.

One more September 1st birthday: the real Art Pepper (1925-1982), alto saxophone great. Not a Western star, but he played on the soundtrack of Clint Eastwood's The Gauntlet, and The Subterraneans, the only Hollywood movie in which he appeared, featured performers like George Peppard, Janice Rule, Jim Hutton and Roddy McDowall, all of whom were in at least one Western. So happy birthday, Art! Wonder what you'd be like at 87?
