He became famous by his stage name when he started his career in acting,. and which took him to the height of success given his acting skills and striking physique.

All the fame and money did not come naturally to this actor; Clint was raised by his mother as his parents divorced when he was very young, and he left school in his teens and worked at various jobs including on river boats, as a metal worker, nightclub bouncer and doorman, undercover for detectives among others. He went to serve at sea in the US Merchant Marine when old enough, nearing the end of World War 2, then returned to odd jobs on shore, and it was only some years later in the early ’50s that a friend suggested that he should try acting, given his voice and strong physique. So Clint then tried his luck in Hollywood, and initially appeared in the film “Jungle Gents” with the name Jett Norman. Later when he was signed by Warner Bros and ABC to the popular series “Cheyenne” in the role of Cheyenne Bodie, that he adopted his popular stage name, Clint Walker. With this role, Clint never looked back in his life, and went on to a successful acting career.

Clint always gave a touch of glamour in his movies, and is considered to be the one who should get credit for raising the stature of western actors in the eyes of the public. He subsequently starred in numerous television series as well as “Cheyenne”, including  “Yuma”, “Killdozer!”, “Scream of the Wolf” and many more. He also played roles in big Hollywood movies with the likes of “The Dirty Dozen”, “The Great Bank Robbery”, “Hysterical”, “None but the Brave” and so on, although to some extent his physique was something of a hindrance. However, for his considerable contribution to television and the cinema, he was been rewarded with a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. In all, Clint appeared in more than 40 films, both on the big screen, and in TV series and films, before he retired in the late ’90s.

In his personal life, Clint was married three times, and with his first wife, Verna Garner (1948-68) is the father of a daughter named Valerie, who went on to become one of the first female pilots. He was also married to Giselle Hennesey from1974 until her death in 1994, and was married to Susan Cavallari from 1997, living in Nevada County, California. The pin-up prince of women in the ’50s and ’60s, Clint still enjoyed the sparks and celebrations he received from his fans and followers, and loved signing autographs at various gatherings post- retirement from the film industry.

Clint Walker passed away on 22 May 2018 at his home in California, eventually from the effects of heart disease – he was 90.

  1. This is utter nonsense. Clint and his wife are good friends of mine and I can attest they aren’t worth anywhere near this. They struggle to get along just like the rest of us. Publishing this kind of misinformation is completely irresponsible.
