1. Rod Cameron. Rod Cameron (born Nathan Roderick Cox) (1910-1983) was a Canadian-born film and television actor whose career extended from the 1930s to the 1970s. He appeared in horror, war, action and science fiction movies, but is best remembered for his many westerns. (Submitted on March 7, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.) 

2. Rod Cameron (Internet Movie Database). The well-worn phrase "Tall in the saddle" is certainly one easy way of describing (and perhaps pigeon-holing) leathery, wiry-framed 1940s and early 1950s western film star Rod Cameron, although he proved quite capable in crime stories, horrors and even swing-era musicals.
