  • American silent-screen actor Roy Robbins, nicknamed for now obscure reasons "Skeeter Bill," usually played lowly ranch hands, subordinate henchmen, rustlers, and the like, in addition to stunt-doubling the stars. Although on screen from the early 1920s, Robbins is perhaps best remembered for supporting the fading Hoot Gibson in a 1931-1933 series of inexpensive oaters produced by M. H. Hoffman. Robbins, in fact, worked for Gibson offscreen as well, managing the star's ranch near Saugus, CA. He died in a freak accident when hit by a truck while wiping snow off his car.
