Rory Calhoun (1922-1999)was a popular film star of the 1950s and early 1960s who specialized in Westerns. He starred in the TV series, The Texan (1958-1960), and continued to appear in films, primarily in character roles, until shortly before his death. Regretting his refusal of a role on Dallas (1978-1991), Calhoun appeared in the soap opera Capitol (1982-1987) for five years beginning in 1982. Growing up, Calhoun had spent several years in reform schools and after convictions for auto theft and armed robbery he even spent some time in prison. However, when his checkered past was revealed by a tabloid, it only enhanced his"bad boy" image. A notorious philanderer, his first wife listed 79 adulterous relationships in her divorce suit against the actor. As a response, Calhoun amusingly quipped, "Heck, she didn't even include half of them." Fine condition.
