#Fact
1Best friend of Chuck Connors.
2Best known for his role as Marshal Micah Torance on The Rifleman (1958).
3Teamed with John Qualen 5 times. They started in "Road to Glory (1936)" and finished in 1973 in "The Streets of San Francisco: Winterkill." In between, they made featured appearances in 3 John Wayne movies: "The High and the Mighty" (1954), "The Sea Chase" (1955) and "The Sons of Katie Elder" (1965).
4Served in the US Navy during World War I.
5Former resident of Santa Monica, California. Drove a black 1960s Cadillac with longhorns attached to the front and personalized license plates reading: "P FIX".
6Buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Santa Monica, California - Block 17.
7Well known to Star Trek (1966) fans as Dr. Mark Piper in the second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before". His portrayal of the USS Enterprise's Chief Medical Officer was short-lived, and DeForest Kelley (who would later become a regular cast member of the original Trek and the first six films) replaced him as the CMO.
8Had a stutter off-screen.
9Father-in-law of actor Harry Carey Jr..
10Supposedly Fix taught John Wayne -- a lifelong friend -- his famous and distinctive "rolling walk" when Wayne was starting out in the business. He wanted something to set him apart, so Fix suggested the rolling gait that became his trademark.
