Rory Calhoun (1922-1999)

  1. Victor Mature, Samson and Delilah, 1949.    CB De Mille was unimpressed by Mrs Alan Ladd’s discovery. He became, mainly a B-cowpoke, despite two big films with Marilyn Monroe.
  2. Jay C Flippen, Jet Pilot, 1949.     Before Howard Hughes - hunting a jet age version of his 1929 Hell’s Angels - got his hands on Robert Hardy’s storyline, producer Paul Short was prepping it as a quickie for Audie Murphy, Calhoun and Rhonda Fleming. Hughes’ version was anything but quick. Shooting began in October 1949 and he then tinkered with it for so long - close to eight years - that the innovative jets he filmed were obsolete when the picture was released…   in October 1957.
  3. Clint Eastwood, A Fistful of Dollars, Per un pugno di dollari, Italy-Spain-Germany, 1964.     Among the many asked to be The (then) Magnificent Stranger was the ex-TV star of The Texan on TV - the only Hollywood cowboy who had previously worked with Sergio Leone - on The Colossus of Rhodes.
  4. Robert Conrad, The Wild Wild West, TV, 1966-1969.      First choice for the sagebrush 007: West, James T West. Until knocked out of the park by the tiny Conrad - 5'8" without his 3inch heels. He lasted 104 episodes and never, according to CBS orders. with a female guest star over 5'6" in what was first called, The Wild West West.
  5. Jean Ferch, Eve, Canada, 1989.For some reason, the job of voicing Lucifer was offered to cowboys Calhoun, Chuck Connors and Clint Walker. They all stayed in their saddles.
