Actor Andy Devine was the squeaky-voiced sidekick in hundreds of movie and television westerns.
Devine's acting career spanned the silent movies to his final film appearance in "Won Ton Ton, the Dog That Saved Hollywood." Altogether, Devine appeared in about 400 movies.
Devine won a new generation of fans with his seven-year television role during the '50s as Wild Bill Hickok's jovial partner, Jingles.
He made his silent film debut as an extra in 1926.
When talking pictures were introduced a short time later, Devine's high-pitched, croaking voice ended his career—for a time.
But he persevered and in the 1930s appeared in dozens of movies, including a role as the driver in the classic "Stagecoach."
His credits also included performances in early radio, appearing with such personalities as Jack Benny and Lum and Abner.
While in his 60s, Devine also traveled throughout the country to appear in such stage productions as "Show Boat," "Never Too Late," "On Borrowed Time" and "Anything Goes."
