Personal Quote:

[When his and Lee Majors's characters encounter a rabid beast ready to pounce on another livestock]: It was a timber wolf. They threw him off a rock and on to me and doubled the close-up with a German shepherd. We would rehearse it and the gaffers would get up there with him and throw him at me. The paws were going every which way. See more »

Trivia:

He wrote a column for Wildest Westerns magazine. See more »
