Photograph from the ABC Television 25th anniversary show. CHUCK CONNORS (1921-1992) was an American actor and professional athlete. He played in both Major League Baseball (MLB) and in the Basketball Association of America, the predecessor to the NBA. Following his career in sports, he grew into an even more famous celebrity as an actor. His portrayal of single father Lucas McCain in The Rifleman (1958-1963) is easily his most recognizable role; the show ran for 168 episodes over five seasons and follows the rancher and his son Mark McCain (portrayed by Johnny Crawford) as they settle in at a new home in North Fork, New Mexico Territory. He earned his first screen credit in Pat and Mike in 1952, where he portrayed a police captain. After earning various television and film credits throughout the 1950s, Connors beat out dozens of other actors for the role of Lucas McCain. After The Rifleman ended, he picked up starring roles in television shows Arrest and Trial (1963-1964), Branded (1965-1966), and Cowboy in Africa (1967-1968). When none of these shows achieved the level of success that The Rifleman did, Connors began to focus on the big screen, with roles in Soylent Green (1973) and Airplane II: The Sequel (1982). In a return to television, he had a memorable role in the mini-series Roots (1977) as a plantation owner, one of the many antagonists of the series. The popular actor was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1984. Although he had appeared in several films of the early 1950s, HUGH O'BRIAN (1925-2016) did not become a star until he won the title role in the popular TV series, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961). (Reportedly, Earp's biographer and widow both urged the casting of O'Brian.) 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). CLAYTON MOORE (1914-1999) entered show business as a young circus acrobat. He worked his way up the ladder in Hollywood Westerns from extra to stunt man to supporting actor, reaching stardom on television as The Lone Ranger from 1949-1952 and 1954-1957. Thereafter he made a good living from commercials and public appearances as the titular character. Fine condition.
