One of Republic Pictures' singing cowboys, MONTE HALE (1919-2009), had supporting roles in Westerns starring Roy Rogers and Sunset Carson before starring in his own series of films in the late 1940s. Later he toured with the band of singing cowboy composer Ray Whitley. He's a member of the Western Music Association Hall of Fame. PEGGY STEWART (born in 1923) appeared in many films, mostly Westerns, from the late 1930s into the 1960s. She was one of Republic Picture's leading ladies in the 1940s. Stewart remained a popular figure at Western film and nostalgia gatherings. EDDIE DEAN (1907-1999), born Edgar Dean Glosup, a former singer on the popular National Barn Dance radio program in 1934, became a featured performer on Gene Autry's Melody Ranch and The Judy Canova Show. In 1938, Autry offered Dean a film role in Western Jamboree, beginning an eight-year stint in low budget Westerns, including five Hopalong Cassidy films and the serial, The Lone Ranger Rides Again. Ironically, Dean was not asked to sing until 1944's Harmony Trail, which brought him to the attention of PRC, a low-budget studio. The studio, which hoped to compete with Republic's Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, released the first Eddie Dean musical westerns in color, making their singing cowboy the first star of color "B" Westerns. Dean was first teamed with Emmett Lynn, who was later replaced by Roscoe Ates, his best-remembered sidekick. In addition to his film work, Dean appeared on the TV series, The Beverly Hillbillies (1963), and wrote songs for other country artists, including "One Has My Name, The Other Has My Heart", which was a hit for Jimmy Wakely, and "I Dreamed of a Hillbilly Heaven", which became one of Tex Ritter's most successful recordings. Dean, who received a "Pioneer Award" from the Academy of Country Music, was inducted into the Western Music Association's Hall of Fame in 1990. Oklahoma born actor WILLIAM "BILLY" BENEDICT (1917-1999) was "Skinny" in the East Side Kids (1930s) films and "Whitey" in the Bowery Boys (1940s & 1950s) series . Other early films were Way Down East (1935) with Henry Fonda, and My Little Chickadee (1940) the W.C. Fields-Mae West hit. With more than 100 film credits before 1950, Benedict transitioned to television as a bit player, amassing more than 100 credits there. A few of his TV credits are: Dick Tracy (1951), Dragnet (1956-1957), Tales of Wells Fargo (1958), Maverick (1958-1959), Route 66 (1960), Lassie (1960-1962), Petticoat Junction (1963), Gunsmoke & Hondo (1967), Adam 12 and All in the Family (1971), Mannix (1970-1973), Barnaby Jones (1975-1977), Little House on the Prairie (1981) and Bonanza (1988).
