John Lupton (1928-1993)



  1. Guy Williams,  Zorro, TV, 1957-1961. Because it was for Walt Disney, who had just made a big star out of Fess Parker as Davy Crockett, the first casting call in March 1957, was answered by 130 Zorro wannabes! Uncle Walt insisted all the final testees had real moustaches (like his!). Producer Norman Foster knew who he wanted and (despite Disney’s misgivings), wouldn’t make the series without him. And Williams began shooting the opener, Presenting Senor Zorro, during July 15-26.After surviving stage work with the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Mae West, Lupton had a steady if uneventful and mainly TV career, including re-treading James Stewart’s role of Tom Jeffords in the 50s’ series based on the 1949 Western, Broken Arrow. (Michael Ansara inherited Jeff Chandler’s Cochise).

* Missing the mark… of Zorro.  Guy Williams (in his Walt Disneyesque moustache) won the 50s’ TV series. John Lupton did not. Instead of South, he went West in the Broken Arrow series.                   [© United Artists, 1956]
