Popularity Through Marriage

Susan is the third and last wife of Clint Walker. Before her, he was married twice before, but all his marriages lasted for around 20 years. His first marriage was to Verna Garver, from 1948 until 196, then in 1974 he married Giselle Hennessy, and the two divorced in 1994.

Just three years later, Susan became his third wife, and the two remained married until the 21st May 2018, when Clint passed away from congestive heart failure in Grass Valley, California, just nine days before his 91st birthday. Once the news of their wedding spread, Susan became one of the most prominent personalities at the time, but unfortunately, the media failed to discover any details about the third wife of Clint Walker. Rather unfortunate, but hopefully such information will become available in the future.

Susan Cavallari Ex-Husband, Clint Walker

Let’s share some information about Clint, his early life, family, education, and career as well.

Born Norman Eugene Walker on the 30th May 1927 in Hartford, Illinois, he is a son of Czech mother, Gladys Huldah, and Paul Arnold Walker. He came into the world alongside his twin sister, Lucille. He dropped out of school to work in a factory, and later joined the US Military as Marine Merchant sailor during the last few months of World War II when he was only 17 years old. After he left the military, he worked at a variety of jobs in Texas, Nevada, California etc.

Career Beginnings

Walker started his acting career as Henry Willison’s client – Henry gave him the nickname “Jett Norman”, and cast him in “Bowery Boys”. Later, in Los Angeles, he was hired by Cecil B. DeMille for an appearance in “The Ten Commandments”. His friend from film industry pushed his career a bit, just enough for Warner Brothers studios to acknowledge his potential as they were producing western TV series at the time. Walker’s good looks helped him get the title role in the new TV series called “Cheyenne”, as Cheyenne Bodie, a heroic wandering cowboy in the era of post-American civil war. That role gave him the opportunity to show his charisma, and made him a western film legend. In 1958, Warner Brothers gave him a lead role in “Fort Dobbs”, and in 1959 title role in “Yellowstone Kelly”. “Cheyenne” episodes eventually ended in 1963, spawning feature films too, and Walker also guest starred in the TV series “Maverick” and “77 Sunset Strip”. Warner’s gave a third shot to Walker with “Gold of the Seven Saints” in 1961, with Roger Moore as his co-star, who also had a contract with Warner Brothers.

Career After “Cheyenne”

In 1964, Walker starred in Kraft Suspense Theatre, and in 1965, Frank Sinatra gave him a role in the “None But the Brave” war drama, the only piece Sinatra ever directed. Walker also fought a grizzly bear in “The Night of the Grizzly” in 1966. But his most profound role which lifted him to star status again was in the movie “The Dirty Dozen” in 1967, playing convict Samson Posey in the war drama. His return to Westerns was with the movie “More Dead Than Alive” in 1969, and he also had several support roles in the Western comedies “Sam Whiskey” and “The Great Bank Robbery” in 1969.

In the 1970’s he played many characters in “Phynx” (1970), starred in the movie “Yuma” (1971), and later in 1972 he had roles in “Hardcase” and “The Bounty Man”. Walker then co-starred with Telly Savalas in “Pancho Villa” in 1972 and many other TV series during the decade. In 1976 he starred in “Baker’s Hawk”, and had support parts in “Snowbeast” 1977 and “The White Buffalo” also in 1977. The Canadian “Deadly Harvest” also saw him a co-starring role in 1977, and he then appeared in “Mysterious Island of Beautiful Women” in 1979.

Later Years and Retirement

His career years were winding down, but he still managed to secure a few notable roles, such as an appearance in “Hysterical” in 1983, and then in “The Gambler Returns: Luck of the Draw” in 1991. Four years later he reprised his most prominent role of Cheyenne Bodie in the TV series “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues”, while in 1998 he voiced Nick Nitro in the film “Small Soldiers”, which ultimately became his last career endeavor.
