Biography

Richard Allen Boone (June 18, 1917 – January 10, 1981) was an American actor who starred in over 50 films and was notable for his roles in Westerns and for the TV series

 

Boone was born in Los Angeles, California, the middle child of Cecile (née Beckerman) and Kirk E. Boone, a corporate lawyer. His father was a descendant of s Bonne, brother to frontiersman Daniel Boone. His mother was Jewish, the daughter of immigrants from Russia.

Richard Boone graduated from Hoover High School in Glendale, California. He attended Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, where he was a member of TI HX fraternity. He dropped out prior to graduation and went to work in oil-rigging, bartending, painting, and writing. He joined the United States Navy in 1941 and served on three ships in the Pacific during World War II, seeing combat as an aviation ordnanceman, enlisted Naval Aircrewman and tail gunner on Grumman TBF Avenger torpedo bombers.

 

In 1950, Boone made his screen debut as a Marine officer in Milestone’s Halls of Montezuma. In 1953, he played P. P in the first CINEMAS film released, The Robe. He had only one scene in the film, in which he gives instructions to Richard Burton, who plays the centurion ordered to crucify Christ. When he was ordered to appear in another film for Fox made at the same time as The Robe, he ended his contract with the studio.

During the filming of Halls of Montezuma he befriended Jack Webb, who was then producing and starring in Dragnet, whose writer was preparing a series about a doctor for NBC. From 1954–56, Boone became a familiar face in the lead role of that MEDICAL DRAMA, titled Medic, receiving in 1955 an Emmy nomination for Best Actor Starring in a Regular Series. While on Medic, he also guest-starred as the character Everett Brayer on NBC’s Frontier anthology series, in the episode “The Salt War”. He appeared in the 1954 Dragnet film based on Webb’s series.

Personal life

Boone was married three times: to Jane Hopper (1937–1940), Mimi Kelly (1949–1950), and Claire McAloon (from 1951 until his death). His son with Claire McAloon, Peter, worked as a child actor in several of his father’s Have Gun – Will Travel television shows.

Richard Boone moved to St. Augustine, Florida, from Hawaii in 1970 and worked with the annual local production of Croos an sw., when he was not acting on television or in movies, until shortly before his death in 1981. In the last year of his life, Boone was appointed Florida’s cultural ambassador. During the 1970s, he wrote a newspaper column for the St. Augustine Record called “It Seems To Me”. He also gave acting lectures at Flagler College in 1972–1973. In his final role, Boone played Commodore Matthew C. Perry in the Bushido blade.
