Photograph signed: "Tom Steele" and "House Peters Jr". B/w 10x8. Legendary Scottish-born stuntman/actor STEELE (1909-1990) was the only stuntman under contract to Republic Pictures, which often cast its serial heroes to for their resemblance to the handsome Steele. Steele, who starred in Republic's serial, The Masked Marvel, often played three to four characters in other films and doubled for such actors as Roy Rogers, Rod Cameron, Clayton Moore and George Montgomery. Steele, who made his film debut in 1937, appeared in a number of feature films, including The Thing (1951), Spartacus (1960), Cat Ballou (1965), Harper (1966), Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and The Blues Brothers (1980), and did stunts for a number of TV shows, from Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951) to Hondo (1967). PETERS (1916-2008), played the original "Mr. Clean" on a string of early TV commercials for the product. The son of actor House Peters, he had begun his film career in "B" Westerns and went on to play supporting characters and villians over the next 32 years. Known as "Junior" or "Juny" by his friends, Peters also served in the U.S. Army Air Corps' Air Sea Rescue section during WWII. Upon returning home after the war, he found work in both films and on television, but Peters left show business in 1965 (after finishing an episode of Lassie) - keeping a promise to himself that he would leave the business if he hadn't achieved star status by age 50. House, who then went into the real estate business in the San Fernando Valley, had appeared in a number of films, including Ace Drummond (1936), Adventures of Frank and Jesse James (1948), Cow Town (1950), Gene Autry and the Mounties (1951), The Red Badge of Courage (1951), Lorna Doone (1951), The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Red Planet Mars (1952), Strategic Air Command (1955), Rebel Without a Cause (1955), Johnny Tremain (1957), Rio Conchos (1964) and The Great Sioux Massacre (1965, his last film). After making his television debut in 1950 on The Gene Autry Show, Peters guest starred on such series as Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951, 1952), The Cisco Kid (1952), Death Valley Days (1953), Fury (1956), The Roy Rogers Show (1956, 1957), Broken Arrow (1958), M Squad (1959), Gunsmoke (1959, 1961), Wagon Train (1958, 1961, 1962) and Perry Mason (1964).
