John McKee

Actor/suntman

Born - 16 December 1916, San Luis Obispo, California, USA
Died - 12 May 2013

Dark, craggily handsome American stuntman and bit-part player, a former baseball pro who turned character actor, often in westerns and war movies. After a debut in The House on 92nd Street (1945), most of his roles were very minor - just a fleeting appearance as officer, cop or cowboy. But he found better parts in a few: Rim of the Canyon (1949), Across the Wide Missouri (1951), Above and Beyond (1952), The Affairs of Dobie Gillis (1953), Strategic Air Command (1955), Backlash (1956), Stampeded! (1957), Pork Chop Hill (1959), Lover Come Back (1961), Cape Fear (1962), A Gathering of Eagles (1963), The Hallelujah Trail (1965), Alvarez Kelly (1966), Monte Walsh (1970), Ulzana's Raid (1972), MacArthur: the Rebel General (1977), 1941 (1979) and Tough Enough (1983), his last.
