A real-life cowboy whose grandfather had founded the town of Mt. Morrison, CO, tall (six-foot, one-inch) American silent screen actor Pete Morrison entered films in 1908 when a Selig troupe headed by director-general Francis Boggs visited the area. Morrison later rode the celluloid range with Bronco Billy Anderson but didn't retire from ranching completely until the mid-1910s, when he realized that doubling for non-riders in Hollywood paid better than hard work on the range. Never a major star, Morrison headlined numerous very low-budget oaters through the early '20s, almost always toiling for penny-pinching producers such as Daniel Tattenbaum and William Steiner. Universal hired him in 1926 to replace Jack Hoxie and he hung around even after the demise of the Blue Streak Westerns, the studio's assembly line B-Western series. Surviving the changeover to sound, Morrison spent the remainder of his screen career with Hoot Gibson, a star who always remembered old friends when casting his Westerns. Morrison left films in 1933 and returned to ranching, this time near Golden, CO. His two older brothers, Carl and Chick, also appeared in silent Westerns.
