Bert Freed had the distinction of being the first actor to play the rumpled detective Columbo in an episode of The Chevy Mystery Theater called Enough Rope in 1960. He was in numerous TV shows, including the role of the villain Ryker in the series Shane. He appeared in the movies Ma & Pa Kettle Go to Town, Invaders from Mars, Paths of Glory, Hang 'em High, and Billy Jack.
If you don't know Charles Bronson, something is wrong! He started in the '50s as Charles Buchinsky and appeared in movies like House of Wax and Master of the World, and then in TV shows like The Twilight Zone, Gunsmoke, Biff Baker USA, Sheriff of Cochise, and Have Gun Will Travel. He got his big break in The Magnificent Seven, and then in The Great Escape, The Dirty Dozen, Once Upon a Time in the West, Death Wish, Breakout, Telefon, The Mechanic, and Mr. Majestyk. His screen persona was that of the soft spoken tough guy. He was married 3 times, the longest to his 2nd wife Jill Ireland from 1968 to her passing in 1990. In his later years, he hip replacement surgery which led to him retiring, and then he suffered from Alzheimer's disease. He died of pneumonia at the age of 81.
Ken Berry was a song and dance man, and a comedic actor, best known for his role as accident prone Capt. Parmenter on F-Troop, as well as his appearances on The Carol Burnett Show, The Lucy Show, Dr. Kildare, Mayberry RFD, and Mama's Family.
John Barry (1933-2011) was a film composer best known for scoring 11 of the James Bond films, and also for his Academy Award winning sores for Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa, and Dances With Wolves.
Kate Capshaw (1953-) started on the sop opera The Edge of Night, and then appeared in the films Dreamscape, Space Camp, Black Rain, The Love Letter, and the 1987 Western The Quick and the Dead. He biggest role was that of Willie Scott in Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom. She would later marry that film's director Steven Spielberg.

Pard, not that I'm macabre or anything, but check out Charles Bronson's tombstone on findagrave.com It's a flat marble or granite slab, with a long and fascinating poem/message on it.
Charles Bronson was Sergio Leone's first choice to play Manco in Fistfull Of Dollars, but Bronson was still doing small parts and was trying to get his foot in the door in Hollywood and turned him down. After the "Dollars" films were released in the U.S.A. in the late 60's and Eastwood went from a co-star on Rawhide to a box office hit, Bronson regretted this decision and when Sergio asked him to star in his classic western Once Upon A Time In The West, Bronson jumped at the opportunity. Unfortunately, as great as Sergio's classic film was, it didn't catch on and Bronson would have to wait another 5 years for the film, Death Wish to become the mega star he became.
Kate Capshaw's film, The Quick And The Dead, with Sam Elliott (not to be confused with the Sharon Stone/Russell Crowe, Gene Hackman film) made in the 90's, is a very good western. She's an excellent actress and almost stole the film, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom from Harrison Ford!! Their chemistry in that film is some of the best on film.

Two more actresses:
Wanda Hendrix, who was leading lady in a few B Westerns and also appeared in TV series like Bat Masterson.
Peggy McKay, who guested in shows dating back to The Adventures of Jim Bowie and Maverick. She was also in the Virginian episode "Man of Violence," in which DeForrest Kelley called Doug McClure "Friend Trampas" about 200 times.
