Robert Horton Credits



Robert Horton moved on from Wagon Train to enjoy a long and successful career in the musical theatre. He starred in at least thirty different shows, only a few of which are listed at right.

In 1964 he began his critically acclaimed leading role on Broadway as Starbuck in 110 in the Shade, a musical adaptation of The Rainmaker, in which he had also appeared.

In many of these productions, Horton’s leading lady was Marilynn Bradley, now his wife of 40 years.

Besides singing on the cast album of 110 in the Shade, Horton released 2 full-length albums (The Very Thought of You and The Man Called Shenandoah) that showcase his fine baritone voice. In addition, several singles were released in the US and Great Britain, where he also had the honor of performing for the Queen.

A MAN CALLED SHENANDOAH

After the run of 110 in the Shade, Robert Horton was enticed back to TV with the leading role in A Man Called Shenandoah. (1965-1966) Although critics loved the show, it never got a decent time slot. Placed opposite both the Andy Griffith Show and the Andy Williams Show, Shenandoah only lasted one year.
