Hugh O'Brian, Star of TV's 'The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,' Dies at 91

The Philadelphia Inquirer offers an obituary of actor Hugh O'Brian, who was one of my childhood heroes when he portrayed legendary western lawman Wyatt Earp on TV.

LOS ANGELES ( - Hugh O'Brian, who starred in the long-running series "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp," died Monday. He was 91.
The actor died peacefully in his Beverly Hills home, according to a statement from Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership.
ABC Western "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp," in which the exceedingly handsome, muscular O'Brian starred as the title character, ran for 221 episodes from 1955-61. At the time he was one of television's great male sex symbols.
In 1957 he was nominated for an Emmy for best continuing performance by an actor in a dramatic series for his work on "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp."
