As the star of Cannon, William Conrad made for one unlikely — and awesome —
action hero. Heavy set and middle-aged, Cannon was quick to apply rough
justice on criminals. The detective would climb out of his ice blue Lincoln
Continental and slap around a hooligan without second thought. He even had a
trademark fighting move — the Cannon belly bump.

While Conrad was a wonderful physical actor, his long career was perhaps
reliant on his deep, authoritative voice. He began, naturally, in radio,
most notably as the star in Gunsmoke. His Marshal Matt Dillon was deemed
better heard than seen, however, and the role was recast with James Arness
when the show made the leap to television.

Other Conrad offerings:

A train speeds through the night. "Name: Richard Kimble. Profession: Doctor
of Medicine. Destination: death row," Conrad declares, as Kimble gazes at
his reflection in the window. "Richard Kimble ponders his fate, as he looks
at the world for the last time… and sees only darkness."

His name was Iron Eyes Cody, but he was best known for shedding a single
tear. The actor became a pop culture icon in the 1970s due to this lasting
anti-pollution PSA. As Cody paddled his canoe through the filthy waters
alongside a factory, Conrad intoned, "Some people have a deep, abiding
respect for the natural beauty that was once this country… and some people
don't." Cut to some jerk in a speeding car, throwing his trash out the
window at Cody's feet.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
