Personal Quote:

[about his career as a movie cowboy] The years of Hollywood are only a memory, albeit a happy one--and the Bob Allen Ranger films the happiest. Tim McCoy and I got along fine, but my fondest memories are of my wonderful sidekick in the series, Wally Wales [Hal Taliaferro]. God Bless his soul.


Appeared as television spokesman for Carter's Little Liver Pills during the City Hospital series, broadcast live from New York City in 1951. See more »
