Victor Jory was in movies, both big budget films and B-movie, from the early 1930s to his death in 1980. He played Jonas Wilkerson in Gone with the Wind, Lamont Cranston in the 1942 serial The Shadow, Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and with his burly features and deep set eyes, was often cast as a heavy, or an Indian, in many B Westerns. He appeared in episodes of Wanted Dead or Alive, The Virginian, Rawhide, The Untouchables, Bonanza, Banacek, McCloud, and The Rockford Files, as well as a regular role as Lt. Howard Finucane on Manhunt.

John Dehner was a tall deep voiced actor, who could play a heavy with the best of 'em. He started out in radio, as the voice of Paladin on Have Gun, Will Travel, and then on Frontier Gentleman as J.B. Kendall. He was dang near every TV Western there was, and in a slew of movies. Most will remember him for his brief time on The Virginian, replacing Lee J. Cobb, or his role as Cyrill Bennett on The Doris Day Show. He worked into the late 1980s, with his final role being Adm. Ernest J. King (who, coincidentally, was also born on Nov. 23) in the Emmy Award winning mini-series War and Remembrance in 1988. He died of emphysema and diabetes at the age of 76.

Ellen Drew was discovered by William Demerest while she was working in an ice cream parlor. She was signed to Paramount from 1938-43, where she appeared in Sing You Sinners, The Lady's From Kentucky, and Christmas in July, then moved to RKO, and as a freelancer, appearing in Isle of the Dead, The Man from Colorado, Davy Crockett-Indian Scout, The Great Missouri Raid, and Man in the Saddle. She went into television in the 1950s and early '60s, appearing in episodes of The Millionaire, Perry Mason, and The Barbara Stanwyck Show. She retired from acting in 1961.

Paul Richards played in the Gunsmoke episode Matt Gets It as a man who outdrew and nearly killed Matt Dillon. He appeared in episodes of Rawhide, Have Gun Will Travel, Zorro, Bonanza, The Virginian, Dragnet, as well as starring in the series Breaking Point. He also played Mendez, the mutant leader in Beneath the Planet of the Apes. He made several other TV appearances until his death in 1978.

Paula Raymond started under contract at MGM, appearing in noir films, then later appeared in The Beast of 20,000 Fathoms. In the 1950s and '6os, she appeared in a wide variety of TV shows, and in the late ,60s and early '70s, she appeared in some low budget horror movies. She was cast on the soap opera Days of our Lives for a couple episodes, but was let go after getting injured on the set. She died of respiratory ailments at the age of 79.

Michael Wayne was the son of the Duke and his first wife, Josephine Saenz. He started working in films as a production assistant on The Quiet Man, then he joined his dad's production company, Batjac, as an associate producer, producer, or executive producer of many of the Dukes movies like The Alamo, McLintock, Big Jake, and Cahill, US Marshal. He died from a heart attack, as a complication of lupus, at the age of 68.

Also today:

Robert Easton (1930-2011) appeared in The Red Badge of Courage (1951), Savage Drums, and with Paula Raymond in The Beast of 20,000 Fathoms. He appeared as Bob McAfee on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, as well as episodes of Gunsmoke, Riverboat, Rawhide, Johnny Ringo, Lost in Space, and The Mod Squad. He did voice acting too, working on the Super-marionation show Stingray, and coached Forrest Whitaker on his Ugandan accent for the role of Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland.
