Website of the Week: Clint Walker

At long last, you will be able to reach the one and only legitimate source for personally autographed photographs and DVDs from Clint Walker, star of Cheyenne, The Dirty Dozen and so much more.

Clint Walker, a twin, was born in Hartford, Illinois. It was depression years and the family was forced to move from town to town, wherever there was work. Clint began his own wandering at the age of 16 when he quit school to work in a factory. He later worked on the local river boats, then joined the Merchant Marines at the age of 17.

After a stint in the oil fields of Brownwood, Texas, Clint moved to Long Beach, California, then on to Las Vegas, where he worked as a deputy sheriff at the Sands Hotel. There, he met many celebrities who encouraged him to try his luck in Hollywood. He did just that.

As luck would have it, Clint was quickly introduced to Cecil B. DeMille, who took a liking to him and offered him a part in his latest film, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Shortly thereafter, Clint was cast in the role of “Cheyenne Bodie” in the series CHEYENNE, which ran for eight years. CHEYENNE became television’s first hour-long western and established Clint as one of the new medium’s biggest stars.

When Clint decided to quit the show, he was cast in a number of films, including NONE BUT THE BRAVE, THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY, THE DIRTY DOZEN, SEND ME NO FLOWERS, NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLY, FORT DOBBS, YELLOWSTONE KELLY, and GOLD OF THE SEVEN SAINTS. Clint, who has a beautiful singing voice, also recorded an album of songs and ballads for Warner Bros.
