HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY Richard, I have always admired your acting abilities. Your TV series Have Gun, Will Travel was the best half hour western in the 50s-60s. Boone served in WW II and used the GI bill to enroll in Actor's Studio in NYC. He made his film debut in 1950 and appeared in 47 movies. Boone died in 1981 in St Augustine, FL. Here are Boone' top ten movies according to IMDb ratings. I note that half were westerns.
