AMBUSH BAY MOVIE CAST: HUGH O'BRIAN and MICKEY ROONEY Cast members O'Brian and Rooney sign 9½x8 still in black ink Photograph signed: "Best wishes/ Hugh O'Brian" and "Peace/ Mickey Rooney" in black ink. B/w, 9½x8. Still from the 1966 film Ambush Bay. Although he appeared in several films in the early 1950s, Hugh O'Brian (1925-2016) did not become a star until he earned the title role in the popular TV series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961). This show, which debuted the same year that Gunsmoke and Cheyenne did, helped usher in a new era of Westerns. For many years after this series, O'Brian resisted offers of Western roles, gradually relenting to appear in John Wayne's last film, The Shootist (1976) and then in TV recreations of his Earp role, including The Gambler Returns (1991). O'Brian starred in another shorter lived series, Probe (1972-1973). Other productions he appeared in include Twins (1988) and Old Soldiers (2016). In 1954, the actor won the Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer. O'Brian founded Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) in 1958 and it continues to be an organization that develops leadership skills in high school students across the country. MICKEY ROONEY (1920-2014) was the son of vaudevillians who put him into their act when he was 15 months old. He debuted onscreen in the silent short Not to Be Trusted in 1926 at the age of six. In 1998, 72 years later, Rooney appeared in Babe: Pig in the City and a later film, The Fighting Temptations, was released in 2003. During the course of his career, Rooney received four Academy Award nominations: two for Best Actor (Babes in Arms, 1939; The Human Comedy, 1943) and two for Best Supporting Actor (The Bold and the Brave, 1956; The Black Stallion, 1979). He was awarded special Oscars in 1938 "for significant contribution in bringing to the screen the spirit and personification of youth, and as a juvenile player setting a high standard of ability and achievement" and in 1982 "in recognition of his 60 years of versatility in a variety of memorable film performances". Rooney, who also won a Golden Globe Best Actor award for his performance in the TV movie, Bill (1981), starred in 16 films as Andy Hardy, the wise-cracking son of a small-town judge, from 1937 to 1958. He made his debut on Broadway in 1979, receiving a nomination for a Tony Award for Best Actor for the musical Sugar Babies. Fine condition.
