  1. I just watched one of the episodes of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp in which Dana appeared. He was a strong actor with a rich voice and lots of charisma. I am grateful you posted this here, as there is little information about him online. Sad to see an actor with a successful career seemingly vanish almost without a trace.
