Reel Cowboys of the Santa Susanas -- Rod Cameron

Rod Cameron (1910 - 1983) was a Canadian-born movie actor whose career spanned four decades from the 1930s to the 1970s.  In 1943, he gained star status in the action serial Secret Service in Darkest Africa for Republic Pictures. 

When cowboy star Johnny Mack Brown left Universal Pictures for Monogram Pictures, Rod Cameron replaced him as Universal's western series star.  In 1947, he was hired by Monogram Pictures for a long string of B-Western pictures.
