Is This Bob Miles?

Post by heartbeatgirl » Mon Feb 17, 2014 1:41 pm

Yesterday, whilst watching an episode from season 1 of The High Chaparral on TV, I began to think that one of the characters looked familiar. Afterwards, I went on Youtube, and took some screencaps. The episode is called "Ride The Savage Land", and I think the Native American is Bob Miles, Bonanza's stunt co-ordinator. Although he had a speaking part, the character didn't have a name, and isn't listed in the credits. I've even been on The High Chaparral website, but it only lists the main characters. It would be interesting to see what your views are?

Best I can do for comparison is a screencap from Land Grab. Bob Miles has a chin dimple and I don't see one on the "Indian."

Very hard call. Bob was part of the DD 'company' who popped up all over the place.

for the HC episode according to IMDB there is an apache brave listed as Dennis Cross-he was also in a 1967 Bonanza episode as Monk in "A Woman in the House". If one googles Dennis Cross on images, there is a picture of him in rifleman that looks a lot like the one from HC as shown here.
