Denny Miller

Actor

Born - 25 April 1934, Bloomington, Indiana, USA
Died - 9 September 2014

Very tall, fair-haired, strapping American actor who had only made one film appearance - in Some Came Running (1958) - when chosen by MGM to play Tarzan. But the film, Tarzan the Ape-Man (1959), was harmed by its low budget and use of old footage, and Miller was thereafter mainly seen in TV westerns - including a four-year stint as Duke, the scout, in Wagon Train - and crime series, remaining busy in the medium into his sixties. Other movies included Love in a Goldfish Bowl (1961), The Party (1968), Making It (1971), Buck and the Preacher (1972), The Island at the Top of the World (1973), The Gravy Train (1974), The Norseman (1978), Cabo Blanco (1980), Circle of Power (1981), More Than Murder (1984) and, much later, Hell to Pay (2005), his last. He died from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
