Howdy Manco!!

If'fn y'all don't know who Trevor Bardette was, then ya ain't been watchin enuff westerns!! This guy got his start in film in 1937 and appeared in a couple of westerns like, Borderland and Overland With Kit Carson and never looked back. He blazed a trail of sneaky, backshootin, schemin, lowdown rustlers, bankrobbers, stagecoach robbers, gang leaders, and just no good, no account folks in general, the likes of which ain't been seen since Quantrill's raiders. He had an uncredited role in Gone With The Wind, then he appeared in The Grapes Of Wrath. He was cast in The Westerner, Apache Trail, Broken Arrow, Johnny Guitar, Destry and more big western films than you can shake a stick at. As soon as you saw his grey headed, narrow rat like face, ya knew some poor pilgrim was gonna git it in the back. In the mid 50's, he started appearing in the t.v. westerns, like The Lone Ranger, Tombstone Territory, and Gunsmoke until 1970, when he retired. If ya can't remember whut he looks like, just think of his role, as ole man Clanton, on The Life And Legend Of Wyatt Earp.

I guess we must be doing all the villains today!! Alan Baxter first showed up n film, in Mary Brown, Fugitive in 1935. He was the furtive eyed, bullet headed, sneering killer, before Alan Ladd came along. Baxter appeared again as a killer in, Big Brown Eyes, and as Jesse James in Bad Men Of Missouri, and Saboteur. He continued to be cast as murderers, and assorted villains like nazi spies, in China Girl and films throughout the 50's. Like Trevor Bardette, he began to be cast as the villain in t.v. westerns in the 50's, like the Restless Gun, Lawman, The Tall Man, The Rifleman, Colt .45 and just about every western series on t.v. During the 60's, he continued to appear on t.v. and occasionally reappeared in films lke, This Property Condemned, Paint Your Wagon and Chisum, as the Governor. He retired from film work and went back to stage acting in 1971. Guess he got tired of all the bad guy roles.

Charles Bateman began his film career in 1958 as Cousin Jeff on Maverick. He snagged a regular part on the 1959 series, Manhunt as Detective George Peters and in 1960, took on the role of Marshal Ben January on the series, Two Faces West. Bateman continued to stay busy during the 60's, 70's and 80's, with appearances on The Virginian, Bonanza, Daniel Boone, Matlock, OHara, U.S. Treasury and many others, while occassionally appearing in films like The Posiedon Adventure And Brotherhood Of Satan. He retired from acting in 1991.

Dan Haggerty first appeared as a bodybuilder in Muscle Beach Party in 1964, then in Girl Happy with Elvis and in Easy Rider in 1969, but it was in 1974 that he got his big break with his role of Grizzly Adams in the 1977-1978, hit t.v. series, The Life And Times Of Grizzly Adams. After the series canceled, Haggerty made a couple of t.v. movies reprising his role in Legend Of The Wild and The Capture Of Grizzly Adams. Since the 80's, Haggerty has continued to stay busy in t.v. wth appearances on The Love Boat, Macon County War, Cheyenne Warrior and is currently filming Timberwolf.

Charles Bateman's first role on TV was Cousin Jeff Martin in an episode of Maverick. He then appeared on Lawman, M Squad, Rawhide and Lassie. He played Det. George Peters on the firts 13 episodes of Manhunt, and then as twin brothers Dr. Rick January and Marshal Ben January on Two Faces West. After that he appeared in episodes of several TV shows, before moving into soap operas.

Dan Haggerty was an animal handler and trainer before becoming an actor, and appeared in a few low budget movies before being cast in the starring role in 1974's The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, and later the TV series of the same name.

Also today:

Jodie Foster (1962-) started out in TV appearances on Mayberry R.F.D, Gunsmoke, The Partridge Family, and later starring on Paper Moon, in the role Tatum O'Neil played in the movie. She was cast by Martin Scorsese as a child prostitute in Taxi Driver, which earned her a slew of nominations, including an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She then appeared in the films Freaky Friday, Bugsy Malone, The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane, Foxes, and Hotel New Hampshire. While she was attending Yale, she became the object of obsession of Jon Hinkley Jr., who attempted to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981. She won 2 Oscars for Best Actress for 1989's The Accused and 1991's Silence of the Lambs, and earned a fourth Oscar nomination for Nell in 1994. She's also been in Maverick (1994), Contact, Anna and the King (1999), Panic Room, Flightplan, and The Brave One.
