Minor Watson was a character actor who appeared in 111 movies, dating back to 1913. His credits include Abe Lincoln in Illinois, Western Union, Boys Town, They Died With Their Boots On, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Guadacanal Diary, and The Thin Man Goes Home.

Emil Sitka was known as "The Fourth Stooge", being one of only 2 actors to appear with every variation of the Three Stooges. He was in 40 films with the Stooges, as well as several uncredited appearances in feature films. He made his last film in 1992, and in June 19997 he suffered a massive stroke from which he never recovered. He passed away sis months later. His gravestone pays tribute to his association with the Stooges, with his famous line from the 1947 short "Brideless Groom": "Hold hands, you lovebirds!"

Frankie Darro was the son of circus trapeze performers, whose father wanted to train him for their act, but Frankie was afraid of heights. He did, however, do stunt work from an early age, and began acting at the age of 6. He appeared in silent Westerns and action films in the silent era, and had his first starring role in William Wellman's Wild Boys of the Road in 1933. He appeared in Gene Autry's first serial The Phantom Empire, Charlie Chan at the Race Track, A Day at the Races with the Marx Brothers, and was the voice of Lampwick in Disney's Pinocchio, before signing a contract with Monogram. Later on, he appeared on the TV shows The Untouchables, Bat Masterson, Have Gun Will Travel, and Batman, and was also the actor "playing" Robbie the Robot in Forbidden Planet. He died of a heart attack at the age of 59.

Peggy Castle made several film and TV appearances, dating back to the mid 1940s, but is best known as the owner of the Bird Cage saloon, Lily Merrill, on the series Lawman from 1959-1962. Her struggle with alcoholism ended when she died of cirrhosis at the age of 45.
