Harlan Warde — Find A Grave
Harlan Warde started in films in 1941 and remained before the cameras until the 1978. He has starred in everything imaginable.....Drama, Crime, Comedy, Film-Noir, War, Adventure, Thrillers, Action, Romance, Westerns, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Horror, Musicals, Family and Music. He played everything from a Lawyer, Police Officer, Military Officer, Reporter, Marshal, Sheriff, Doctor, Chaplin, Bank President and more. He even was Hoss' prosecuting attorney and was Sheriff Brannon on the TV Western series "The Virginian" (1964-1966). He also guest starred in "The Untouchables"
I found it rather strange out of all the things Harlan Warde did, he never starred with Chuck before or after "The Rifleman."
John Maysfield Hamilton, President of the North Fork Bank, was first introduced on "The Rifleman" in the episode 'Safe Guard.' This is when North Fork got their first bank and John Hamilton was new to North Fork.
I always enjoyed seeing him and wanted to see more of him as we did in the episode of 'Boomerang.' Lucas teaches a boy how to use a gun, not knowing that the boy plans on killing the banker he believes is responsible for his fathers death.
He has starred in "The Rifleman" as John Hamilton in 18 episodes.....'The Safe Guard' — 'New Orleans Menace' — 'The Gaucho' — 'The Boarding House' — 'One Went to Denver' — 'The Challenge' — 'The Money Gun' — 'Outlaw's Inheritance' — 'Boomerang' — 'The Spike Rifle' — 'Letter of the Law' — 'Surveyors' — 'Lariat' — 'Trail of Hate' — 'Dead Cold Cash' — 'Sheer Terror' — 'A Friend In Need' — 'The Man from Salinas'
