Which Way Did They Go?
He's the brother who swept the Marshal's office out and took out two of the outlaws.

John received a Bachelor of Science degree from Butler University in Indianapolis, and, for all intents and purposes, was planning on post-graduate work at George Washington University. At a formal French embassy gathering John sang by chance and was encouraged to try a professional musical career along the lines of an Alfred Drake, Howard Keel or John Raitt. Inspired, he headed to New York and eventually won a role in a touring company of South Pacific, Broadway's biggest hit at the time. He went on to perform in other plays as well before breaking into TV work with such established shows as I Remember Mama. Broadway came his way with the Ethel Merman musical Happy Hunting and an understudy job in the title role of Li'l Abner starring Peter Palmer. John eventually replaced Palmer in the popular country bumpkin role. While singing in Las Vegas, he was spotted by a talent scout and signed by the William Morris agency for films and TV. He made the typical rounds in such rugged fare as Tales of Wells Fargo ― Surfside 6Rawhide Wagon Train and Here's Lucy.
