The TV Western Broken Arrow, shown on ABC from 1956 to 1958, was inspired by the Eliott novel Blood Brother and a 1950 film. It starred MICHAEL ANSARA(1922-2013) as the Apache Indian chief Cochise, and JOHN LUPTON (1928-1993) as has friend, Indian agent Tom Jeffords. Lebanese-American Ansara (b. 1922) has often been cast as American Indians, Mexicans and Star Trek Klingons. He has also made dozens of guest appearances on TV series and does voice work for animated cartoons. Ansara was married to actress Barbara Eden (1958-1974). Though best known for his role in Broken Arrow, Lupton (1928-1993) had supporting roles in many films (Battle Cry, The Great Locomotive Chase, both 1956) and TV guest spots. He had a long-running role as Tommy Horton on the daytime drama Days of Our Lives. He was cast as Jesse James in the drive-in classic Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter (1966). TY HARDIN (born in 1930 as Orrison Whipple Hungerford, Jr.) had some minor film roles before getting his big break. When Clint Walker left his series Cheyenne in a salary dispute, Hardin replaced him as "cousin" Bronco Layne. Walker returned after one season, but Hardin's character had been popular, so ABC gave him his own Western series - Bronco (1958-1962).This led to major roles in several films, including second leads in Merrill's Marauders (1962) and PT-109 (1963). Hardin reportedly turned down the starring role in A Fistful of Dollars. In the 1980s, Hardin became a leader of the Arizona Patriots, a right-wing militia group which claimed citizens were sovereign and had no obligation to obey government regulations. He left the country temporarily (for Costa Rica) when federal authorities cracked down on the group. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
