    Clint Walker, Star of TV Western ‘Cheyenne,’ Dies at 90

    [​IMG]

    Clint Walker, who starred in the television Western “Cheyenne” and had a key supporting role in the WWII film “The Dirty Dozen,” died on May 21, 2018 in Northern California, according to the New York Times. He was 90.


    For seven seasons from 1955-61, he played Cheyenne Bodie, a rambunctious wanderer in the post-Civil War West, on the ABC series “Cheyenne.” (He also guested as the character on another Warner Brothers western production “Maverick.”)

    The actor’s seriocomic confrontation with star Lee Marvin was one of the highlights of the classic 1967 war picture “The Dirty Dozen.”

    I've never seen Cheyenne and didn't recognize him from that picture, but once I realized he was Samson Posey in The Dirty Dozen, now I know who he is. 90 is a great run. RIP.
