Program page describing Jones' and Lauter's television series Buffalo Bill (1955-1956) and Davis' show Annie Oakley (1954-1957). DICK JONES (1927-2014) was cast as the voice of Pinocchio at age 10. Hoot Gibson had him performing riding and rope tricks at age six in the rodeo and ultimately sponsored his move to California. Other early movie parts were in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Destry Rides Again with James Stewart. In 1949, Gene Autry hired him as a stun man thus beginning his television career: The Range Rider -he was the sidekick (1951-53), Dick West and Buffalo Bill Jr. (1955-56) with guest appearances on Gunsmoke,Annie Oakley and The Lone Ranger. Jones worked in nearly 100 films and more than 200 television episodes, retiring from show business in 1959. HARRY LAUTER (1914-1990) was a character actor that nearly made it to stardom with the lead role in the 52 episode TV series Tales of the Texas Rangers (1955-1958). A career spanning nearly 40 years, hundreds of credits-more if you count his uncredited appearances from his early days in film, Lauter was an in-demand, always busy, quality character actor. A list of the TV series on which he appeared 10 times or more includes The Gene Autry Show, Annie Oakley, The Lone Ranger, Range Rider, Gunsmoke and Rawhide. He appeared on many crime dramas, too, just not as often. The son of an artist, Lauter was also a painter that ran his own gallery. Actress GAIL DAVIS (1925-1997) was discovered by Gene Autry, who had featured her in nearly 20 of his movies and 30 of his own program's episodes before giving her a series of her own. A skilled rider and a crack shot, Davis did most of her own stunt work. Her series Annie Oakley (1952-1956) was the first television western starring a female. Right edge frayed. Slightly toned. Light surface creases. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
