He has over 120 movie and TV roles to his credit, including small parts in The Lone Ranger and Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok, but he's probably best known for his role as Inspector Bill Henderson in the TV The Adventures of Superman. WILSON (1916-2007) is probably best known as Mr. Whipple from the Charmin toilet paper commercials, an ad campaign that began in 1964 and ran for more than 20 years. Born Riccardo DiGuglielmo in Preston, Lancashire, England, he appeared in over 70 movies and TV shows between 1956 and 1987, as well as The Twilight Zone, McHale's Navy, Bewitched and Hogan's Heroes. He also had small roles in a number of TV westerns, including Bat Masterson and Wagon Train and as Black Eagle in Don Knotts' western comedy The Shakiest Gun in the West. Actress and stuntwoman Evelyn Finley (1916-1989), who was often credited as EVE ANDERSON, made her film debut in 1940 in Arizona Frontier, and she would appear in several Westerns through 1956 (Perils of the Wilderness). Finley, who had begun her career as a stuntwoman (The Texas Rangers, 1936), worked in that capacity through 1955, when she made Blood Alley. She returned to films as a stuntwoman in 1960 in Swiss Family Robinson, and Finley did stunts for two other films, Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1960) and Silverado (1985). COTTON (1925-1997) also known as the Yodeling Blonde Bombshell, had 21 movie appearances to her credit including Apache Country and Blue Canadian Rockies with Gene Autry and Rough, Tough West with Jock Mahoney. She started out on radio and performing at San Francisco's Golden Gate Theatre yodeling, singing and playing instruments before her first movie appearance in 1944. She also recorded a number of Western songs, yodeling songs and song tracks. RUSSELL (1921-1991) was a Marine during World War II and received a battlefield commission at Guadalcanal. He has over 70 movie and TV roles to his credit, the most notable as Nathan Burdette in Rio Bravo. Modern audiences probably know him best as gun-for-hire Marshall Stockburn in Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider and as Commander Stone from the second season of the children's TV show Jason of Star Command. LYDEN (1908-1998), who was named "Villain of the Year" in a 1944 Photo Press Fan Poll, appeared in more than 125 B-Westerns and serials, beginning with King of Dodge City in 1941. He was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1979. WHITE (1908-1980) appeared in over 250 films and television series between 1936 and 1975, many of them Westerns like Arizona Whirlwind (1944) and Harmony Trail (1944). CAMPBELL (1911-1989) appeared in the Western films Yodelin Kid from Pine Ridge (1937) and Ridin' the Cherokee Trail (1941). SHILLING (1910-2004) went from stage work to her film debut, Wise Girls (1929), and starred opposite William Powell in Shadow of the Law the following year. She was a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1931. She made 42 films through 1936, mostly B-Westerns and crime dramas. A good rider (unlike many of her rival Western heroines), she co-starred with many of the Western heroes of the day, including Buck Jones, Fred Scott and Tim McCoy. Noteworthy was her 1934 serial The Red Rider, with Scott. She retired from acting when she married, but returned in later years on the film nostalgia circuit. MARION (1912-2003) had a short but busy career as a heroine of B- Westerns in the mid-1930s, starring opposite Johnny Mack Brown, Ken Maynard, Bob Steele and Tom Tyler. She married stuntman Cliff Lyons in 1938 and retired from film, returning only for an un-credited appearance in Ain't Misbehavin (1955). Canadian actress PATTERSON (1922-1995) appeared in 51 movies and TV shows between 1942 and 1959, many of them westerns. Her other roles included the 1943 serial The Batman and female lead in the classic sci-fi B-movie It! The Terror From Beyond Space. She was also Miss California in the 1940 Miss America contest.
