Howdy, Manco! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving!
Lynne Roberts was a B-movie actress, under contract for most of her career with Republic Pictures. She started her career at the age of 14, and in 1938 appeared in the serials The Lone Ranger and Dick Tracy Returns. She was briefly under contract for Fox in the early 1940s, then went back to Republic in '44, and stayed there until 1948. She was in Sioux City Sue, Robin Hood of Texas, and Saddle Pals, all with Gene Autry, and Rough Riders Round Up and In Old Caliente with Roy Rogers (billed as Mary Hart). She also was in episodes of The Gene Autry Show, Racket Squad, Fireside Theater, Mr. & Mrs. North, and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. In December 1977, she fell in her bathroom and struck her head. She fell into a coma, and died the following April at the age of 55.
Robert Vaughn first appeared as an extra in The Ten Commandments, then appeared in his first film credit in Hell's Crossroads (before this film, he appeared in episodes of Gunsmoke, State Trooper, and Father Knows Best). His first notable appearance was in The Young Philadelphians, for which he earned an Oscar nomination and Golden Globe nomination. In 1960, he played the gunfighter Lee in The Magnificent Seven, and was instrumental in getting his friend James Coburn cast as Britt, the knife thrower. He was cast in the 193-64 season of The Lieutenant, but was dissatisfied with the role, and met with the producers to expand his part, when he got the call offering him the part of Napoleon Solo in The Man from UNCLE. Over the years, he's been in dozens of movies and TV shows, and in recent years has done TV ads for the law firm of Metzger-Wickersham, and doesn't seam to have aged too badly, for a guy who's 80 years old!
