Click for Denny Miller’s CreditsBig, affable Duke Shannon joined the Wagon Train in 1961 and rode the trail until 1964.
Billed on Wagon Train as Scott Miller but better known to fans as Denny Miller, the former UCLA basketball star played Duke.
From the Megan Herring CollectionFor reasons that are not clear, the producers originally under utilized Miller, often relegating him to pointing “thataway” or answering in monosyllabic utterances. In later seasons he was given more dynamic scripts, which made fans happy.Why? Because the ladies had sure noticed the tall blond. And sent him plenty of fan mail as well!
