After spending three seasons with the Pasadena Playhouse, actor Robert Rockwell made his Broadway debut in Jose Ferrer's 1946 production of Cyrano de Bergerac, a job he landed on the strength of his dueling skills. Signed to a Republic Pictures contract in 1949, he starred in 11 films over a period of two years, including the infamous anti-Communist tract The Red Menace. From 1952 to 1955, he was seen as Mr. Philip Boynton, the stunningly handsome and incredibly naïve biology teacher on TV's Our Miss Brooks. So typecast was he by this role that he had some trouble finding work after the series' cessation, but the TV-Western boom came to his rescue in 1959, when he was cast as two-fisted frontier insurance investigator Sam Logan in The Man From Blackhawk. Active into the 1990s, Robert Rockwell could be seen in character roles in such TVers as Growing Pains and Beverly Hills 90210.
