Cameron Mitchell (1)


The son of a minister, Cameron Mitchell made his Broadway debut in 1939 in Jeremiah and his television debut in an experimental 1940 broadcast of The Passing of the Third Floor Back. After serving in the US Air Force during WWII as a bombardier, Mitchell made a few movies for MGM before originating the role of Happy in the original Broadway production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman in 1949. He repeated the role on film in 1951 with a cast that included Fredric March and Kevin McCarthy.

His career seemed to alternate between leading man roles in high profile movies like How to Marry a Millionaire with leading ladies Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall and Love Me or Leave Me with Doris Day and James Cagney to low budget films like Flight to Mars and Rebel Rousers.

He made multiple television appearances, starring in three series: The Beachcomber, The High Chaparral and Swiss Family Robinson. His role as Buck Cannon in The High Chaparral endeared him to fans. His episodic appearances included Bonanza, The F.B.I., Mission: Impossible and Simon & Simon.
