Louis Lindley Jr.

AKA Slim Pickens

Louis Burton Lindley Jr.  Better known by his  stage name Slim Pickens, was an American actor and rodeo performer. Starting in the rodeo, Pickens transitioned to acting and appeared in several dozen movies and TV shows.

For much of his career Pickens played mainly cowboy roles; he is perhaps best remembered today for his comic roles in  Dr. StrangeloveBlazing Saddles and 1941, and his villainous turn in One-Eyed Jacks.

What we remember most… “What in the wide, wide world of spotrs isa goin on here?” RIP Slim.

Carl Alban Ruman

Stalag 17 (1953)

Wonderfully talented German-born actor, capable of tremendous comedic and dramatic performances, usually as some type of pompous bureaucrat or similarly arrogant individual. He served with the Imperial German Forces in World War I before coming to the United States in 1924. He regularly appeared in high-quality stage productions on Broadway.

 In the Hitler Gang, (1944) and Stalag 17, (1953) he gave a superb portrayal of the two-faced POW guard Schulz.

George Frances Hayes

George Frances Hayes

George Francis “Gabby” Hayes (May 7, 1885 – February 9, 1969), was an American actor. He began as something of a leading man and a character player, but he was best known for his numerous appearances in B-Western film series as the bewhiskered, cantankerous, woman-hating, but ever-loyal and brave comic sidekick of the cowboy stars Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rogers.

Despite his later association with westerns, Hayes did not come from a cowboy background; he did not know how to ride a horse until he was in his forties and had to learn for film roles.
