    (July 14, 1923-February 27, 2013)
    Born in Harrah, Oklahoma
    Birth name was Dayle Robertson
    Portrayed Jim Hardie in ‘Tales of Wells Fargo’ (1957-62)
    Final host of ‘Death Valley Days’ (1968-70)
    Appeared in the films ‘Fighting Man of the Plains’ (1949), ‘Two Flags West’ (1950), ‘Golden Girl’ (1951), ‘The Outcasts of Poker Flat’ (1952), ‘O. Henry’s Full House’ (1952), ‘City of Bad Men’ (1953), ‘Sitting Bull’ (1954), ‘Dakota Incident’ (1956), ‘Law of the Lawless’ (1963), ‘Blood on the Arrow’ (1964) and ‘The One-Eyed Soldiers’ (1966)
    Of his four marriages, two ended in divorce, one in an annulment after six months.
    He was typecast in Westerns.
    He reveled in his reputation for being uncooperative, boasting that he had won the Sour Apple Award from the Hollywood Women’s Press Club three consecutive years with his streak ending only because ‘that dang Sinatra had to hit some photographer in the nose.’ (Actually, he won only once, in 1953.)
    He had a recurring role on Dynasty, but his character disappeared after the first season. He claimed the producers killed off his character because ‘They kept putting all this sex and stuff into it, and I didn’t do it the way they wanted it.’
    He was training polo ponies in his teens.
    While attending a military academy, he earned extra money as a professional boxer.
    In North Africa during World War II, his tank was hit by enemy fire. He was blown out the hatch of the tank and suffered shrapnel wounds that left permanent scars on his legs.
    Later during the European campaign, he was wounded in the right knee during a mortar attack.
    His Hollywood career began unintentionally: while stationed in southern California, he had a photo of himself taken and sent to his mother. The photographer displayed a copy in his shop window, where it attracted attention from movie scouts.
    He had to draw his gun with his left hand, because he was so fast with his right hand that the cameras missed the action.
    The Guardian called him ‘the epitome of masculinity.’
