Although he appeared in several films in the early 1950s, Hugh O'Brian (1925-2016) did not become a star until he earned thetitle 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. The actor 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. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Corners worn and lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
