WOW is all I can say. Its funny how time stands still in our minds when we think of people from long ago. Seeing them now is often quite a shock. Hugh O'Brian was a handsome leading man with a nice deep voice. I wouldnt recognize him now. Ive wondered what happened to him. Unlike my memories, he has aged and changed.

A retired Senior Deputy U. S. Marshal who is on the board preserving the bithplace. He credited O'Brian's portrayal of a marshal as being an inspiration. Interesting aside, only he and O'Brian where the only former Marine's in the entire crowd.

My wife says he still has the "eyes." He's 83 years old and his speaking voice is still good.
