Mini Bio (1)
Cowboy actor, stuntman and quick-draw artist are all things that could be used to describe Arnold Roberts. His career started in the late 1950s and he appeared in such TV shows as "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" and "The Untouchables"
In the early 1960s. the president of Universal Studios wanted to develop a studio tour which wold take people to see production of films and TV shows in action. Roberts was called up to coordinate the western stunt show portion. When Roberts wasn't doing the stunt show he appeared in many of Universal's western shows, doing stunts and playing a variety of barflies, henchmen and ranch hands as needed. Even with the downturn of westerns in the late 1960s, he still was able to obtain work in such shows as Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and Alias Smith and Jones.
Like most of the cowboys before him, he worked up until the very end, with his last part being that of an auctioneer appropriately dressed as a cowboy in Timestalkers.
