Following the Civil War, the U.S. government sets out to find a gang opposing the construction of telegraph lines in the west. They suspect Braden, who had formed a guerrilla band and destroyed the telegraph service during the war. Government agent Steve Duncan, who also works undercover as The Durango Kid, starts to run down the gang with only a picture of Braden for a clue. Steve is ambushed by an outlaw and left for dead but is rescued by Smiley, who takes him to a trading post ran by a man named Miller. Steve recognizes Miller as Braden, who tells him he is being falsely accused of crimes actually committed by Sloper.

MORE INFO ON JOCK MAHONEY: Mahoney is of French and Irish extraction, with some Cherokee. At the University of Iowa, he was outstanding in swimming, basketball and football. When World War II broke out, he enlisted as a Marine fighter pilot and instructor. In Hollywood, he was a noted stunt man, doubling for Errol Flynn, John Wayne, and Gregory Peck. Gene Autry signed him for the lead in his 78-episode "The Range Rider" (1951) TV series. He tested to replace Johnny Weissmuller, as Tarzan but lost out to Lex Barker. In 1960, he played the heavy in Gordon Scott's Tarzan the Magnificent (1960), and his part there led Sy Weintraub to hire him as Scott's replacement. In his two Tarzan movies, he did all his own stunts. In Tarzan's Three Challenges (1963), he continued working in spite of dysentery, dengue fever and pneumonia. By this time, Weintraub was looking for a younger Tarzan, envisioning a future TV series. By mutual agreement, his contract with Mahoney was dissolved. After a couple of years regaining his strength and weight, Jock returned to making action films.

Mahoney's career was interrupted in 1973 when he suffered a stroke while filming an episode of the television program "Kung Fu" (1972). He later appeared in the film Their Only Chance (1975). His final picture (ironically entitled The End (1978/I)) was with his stepdaughter, Sally Field. Burt Reynolds, Ms. Field's then-boyfriend, was co-star and director. Mahoney was stunt coordinator on the 1981 film Tarzan, the Ape Man (1981). He later guest starred in episodes of the TV programs "B.J. and the Bear" (1978) and "The Fall Guy" (1981). Mahoney died in Bremerton, Washington of an apparent stroke. He had been hospitalized after an auto accident two days earlier. He was survived by his wife Autumn Russell; a daughter, Princess O'Mahoney, and a son, Jim.

His step-daughter is actress Sally Field

The movies' oldest Tarzan. (He was 44 when he filmed Tarzan's Three Challenges (1963)).

He had a daughter, Princess O'Mahoney, with Margaret Field and 2 stepchildren, Richard and Sally Field.

He had two children with Lorraine O'Donnell: Kathleen & Jim.

Doubled for Errol Flynn, Gregory Peck and Randolph Scott.

MORE INFO ON SMILEY BURNETTE:

Smiley worked on a local radio station and in Vaudeville after high school. Always interested in music, he was friends with Gene Autry and worked with him on the radio show "The National Barn Dance". When Westerns became a big draw with sound, the studios were always on the lookout for singing cowboys. In 1934, both Gene and Smiley made their debuts in In Old Santa Fe (1934). Smiley became well known as Gene's plump sidekick Frog Milhouse, and they worked together in over 80 Westerns. After Gene, Smiley provided the comic relief for other cowboy stars at Republic such as Sunset Carson and Charles Starrett (The Durango Kid). He also provided a lot of the music as he wrote over 300 western songs and sang quite a few in the films. Smiley was the first supporting actor to regularly appear on the Top Ten Western money-maker list. He became well known for his white horse with the black circle around one eye. When he used a team of white horses, as when he was 'Spec Specialist' Smiley Burnette, each white horse had one black circle around one eye. When the 'B' movie Western reign ended in 1953, Smiley retired from the screen. He made occasional appearances on television including being a regular on the music show "Ozark Jubilee (1959)". His last performance was as railroad engineer Charlie Pratt on "Petticoat Junction" (1963) from 1963-67.

MORE INFO ON CHARLES STARRETT: While on the Darmouth College football team, Charles Starrett was hired to play a football extra in The Quarterback (1926). Impressed by the job, Starrett got the acting bug and next went into vaudeville, then regional stage work and finally to Broadway. Spotted by a Paramount talent scout, Starrett was signed to play the romantic lead in Fast and Loose (1930). For the next couple of years he would be busy, but his roles were unremarkable. In 1933 he would be one of the people who helped organize the Screen Actors Guild. In 1936 he would sign with Columbia and over the next 16 years star in 115 westerns. Appearing in as many films as he did, he was usually called "Steve" something - such was life on the "B" circuit. During the 1940s Starrett would always be among the top ten western stars. After playing assorted sheriffs and rangers, he would become well known for his role as the "Durango Kid". Never ask where he kept the white horse and the clothes, but he could change outfits and horses before the gun could clear the leather. The Durango Kid first appeared in 1940, and towards the end of his career he would play the Durango Kid in almost every film, even though he was starting to show his age. When the "B" movie westerns rode off into the sunset in the early 1950s, Starrett hung up his spurs for good.
