THE LADY TAKES A FLYER MOVIE CAST: JEFF CHANDLER and CHUCK CONNORS B/w still from the 1958 film showing Chandler as pilot Mike Dandridge and Connors as his co-pilot Phil Donahoe in the cockpit of a WWII airplane Printed Photograph Signed in ink: "Jeff Chandler" and "All the best to/ you-/ Chuck/ Connors". B/w 10x8, © 1957 Universal Pictures Company, Inc. The Lady Takes a Flyer is a 1958 romantic drama, directed by Jack Arnold and written by Danny Arnold, based on story by Edmund H. North. JEFF CHANDLER (1918-1961), who began his career as a radio actor, made his film debut in 1947. In 1950, he made the first of three performances on the big screen as Apache Chief Cochise in Broken Arrow, earning an Academy Award nomination. Chandler, who was one of the top leading men of the 1950s, died shortly after making Merrill's Marauders (1962) from blood poisoning after spinal surgery. He was 42. CHUCK CONNORS (1921-1992) was an American actor and professional athlete. He played in both Major League Baseball (MLB) and in the Basketball Association of America, the predecessor to the NBA. Following his career in sports, he grew into an even more famous celebrity as an actor. His portrayal of single father Lucas McCain in The Rifleman (1958-1963) is easily his most recognizable role; the show ran for 168 episodes over five seasons and follows the rancher and his son Mark McCain (portrayed by Johnny Crawford) as they settle in at a new home in North Fork, New Mexico Territory. He earned his first screen credit in Pat and Mike in 1952, where he portrayed a police captain. After earning various television and film credits throughout the 1950s, Connors beat out dozens of other actors for the role of Lucas McCain. After The Rifleman ended, he picked up starring roles in television shows Arrest and Trial (1963-1964), Branded (1965-1966), and Cowboy in Africa (1967-1968). When none of these shows achieved the level of success that The Rifleman did, Connors began to focus on the big screen, with roles in Soylent Green (1973) and Airplane II: The Sequel (1982). In a return to television, he had a memorable role in the mini-series Roots (1977) as a plantation owner, one of the many antagonists of the series. The popular actor was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1984. Corners slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
