RIP Hugh O’Brian

hugh_obrianBEVERLY HILLS, CALIF.–Hugh O’Brian, handsome leading man of films and TV, and notable philanthropist, died in his sleep at his home here. He was 91.

He is perhaps best remembered on screen for the lead role in the 1955-61 series “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.” MSTies will remember his role as Harry Chamberlin in the movie in episode 201- ROCKETSHIP X-M.

The L.A. Times has the obituary.

Thanks to Paul (who once met Hugh) for the heads up.

    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more Death. Neither sorrow, nor crying. Neither shall there be any more O’Brain; for the former things are passed away.

    MSTIES will ALSO remember him as one of three field agents in the dreadfully underrated series “Search,” and its pilot movie “Probe.”

    Probe 1 to Probe Control, do you read me ?

    Wow, another member of the Abe Vigoda “I didn’t know he was still alive and now he’s dead” club.

    Loved Wyatt Earp show (as old as I am, saw it when first broadcast). He lived a long, and hopefully good, life. R.I.P., Marshall.
