Biography:

Guy Wilkerson, born December 21, 1899, was a consummate silver screen cowboy - even though over half of the 185 titles he appeared in were not westerns..He became known as "Panhandle Perkins" in some two-dozen low budget westerns he made during WWII. When the movie westerns began to fade, Guy moved over to television, appearing in a number of cowboy classics such as Lawman, Cheyenne and Maverick - and country shows such as Green Acres and Petticoat Junction. He closed his cowboy career with a pair of appearances on one of the most popular westerns of all time - Bonanza.
