30 Handsome Portrait Photos of Clint Walker in the 1950s

Born 1927 in Hartford, Illinois, American actor Clint Walker became a client of Henry Willson, who renamed him “Jett Norman”. His good looks and imposing physique (he stood 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m) tall with a 48 in (120 cm) chest and a 32 in (81 cm) waist) helped him land an audition where he won the lead role in the TV series Cheyenne.

Walker played cowboy Cheyenne Bodie in the ABC/Warner Bros. western series Cheyenne from 1955 to 1963. He had his biggest feature film hit to date when he played the meek convict Samson Posey in the war drama The Dirty Dozen (1967).

Walker has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1505 Vine Street, near its intersection with Sunset Boulevard. In 2004, he was inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He received the Golden Boot Award in 1997. In 2017, he was presented an inlaid bronze star medallion on the Texas Trail of Fame in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District.

Walker died of congestive heart failure in Grass Valley, California, in 2018, nine days before his 91st birthday. Take a look at these vintage photos to see portraits of a young and handsome Clint Walker in the 1950s.
