Lane Chandler ACTOR


Lane Chandler was born on June 4th, 1899 in South Dakota with the birth name Robert Chandler Oakes.  He became a supporting player throughout his career as an actor mostly appearing in westerns.  

He was raised in Montana and after high school enrolled briefly at Montana Wesleyan College.  He left college early to work at Yellowstone National park and then moved to Los Angeles working as an auto mechanic.
Soon due to his skills from his younger years as a rancher, he was able to catch the attention of Hollywood directors and was cast with Paramount Pictures appearing in a number of silent films, mainly westerns.
Some of his early film roles included, "The Idle Class" (1921), "The Last Outlaw" (1927), "Open Range" (1927), "Love and Learn" (1928) and "The Legion of the Condemned" (1928).
As his career progressed he left working for Paramount and did freelance film work with such studio's as Big 4, Syndicate pictures and Kent Pictures.  Making the transition from silent films to sound was not so successful for him, but he continued to work appearing on, "Hurricane Horseman" (1931) and "The Cheyenne Cyclone" (1931).

As time went by other film roles included, "Blue Steel" (1934) starring John Wayne, "The Lone Bandit" (1935), "The Outlaw Tamer" (1935), "Trigger Law" (1944), "Riders of the Sante Fe" (1944) and "Red River" (1948) starring John Wayne, Walter Brennan, Montgomery Clift, Noah Beery Jr., John Ireland and Joanne Dru, "Tulsa" (1949) starring Susan Hayward, Pedro Armendariz and Chill Wills, "The Big Trees" (1952) starring Kirk Douglas, Eve Miller, Patrice Wymore, Ellen Corby, Alan Hale Jr., John Archer and Edgar Buchanan.  The majority of films that followed were uncredited, although he did act in over 300 roles throughout his career.    

Along with film work later in his career he turned his focus towards television appearing in such series as, "Gunsmoke", "Lassie", "Cheyenne", "77 Sunset Strip", "Bronco", "Maverick", "Rawhide", "The Cisco Kid", "Stories of the Century", Annie Oakley", "Racket Squad". "Mr. and Mrs. North", "Have Gun - Will Travel", "Lawman", "The Untouchables" "The Lone Ranger" and "Sugarfoot".

Lane Chandler passed away on September 14th, 1972 in Los Angeles, California after suffering from cardio-vascular disease.
