Biography

Clint Walker is an American actor best known for his starring role on the popular Western "Cheyenne". Handsome and well built (he was 6'6'' and had a 48-inch chest), Walker got his start with bit roles in "Jungle Gents" and "The Ten Commandments" after making contacts working at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. This led to his being cast as the lead in the TV show "Cheyenne"; as Cheyenne Bodie, he roamed the frontier in search of adventure. The show ran for seven seasons and made Walker a star. During its run he also appeared in several feature films, including the 1959 Western "Yellowstone Kelly". Walker could never hope to replicate the success of "Cheyenne" but did have some significant roles after the series ended in 1962. He had a recurring role on the action show "77 Sunset Strip" and took a stab at comedy in Norman Jewison's farce "Send Me No Flowers" in 1964. He had a memorable role in the ensemble war drama "The Dirty Dozen" as convict Samson Posey. An older Walker continued appearing in Westerns such as the 1969 feature "More Dead Than Alive" and the TV film "Yuma". He also starred in the little-seen "Kodiak", a show set in the Alaskan wilderness, which lasted only 13 episodes, and had a starring role in the cult sci-fi movie "Killdozer". He continued acting in low-budget films and in TV roles until effectively retiring in 1998.
