In the early 1960s when TV-western mania reached its peak, an American magazine sponsored a contest for the actors who portrayed western heroes and villains. Since the climactic moment of so many shows was the classic quick-draw shoot-out, the actors had to acquire that skill to play their scenes. The magazine held a competiton among some of the stars of the shows, firing blanks, aiming not at each other but downrange, and using an electronic timer. Quite a number of cowboy stars showed up to "slap leather." He beat them all and won the title of the fastest gun in Hollywood.
Traditionally a dark-haired heartthrob of early 1960s TV, he became a peroxide blond for one of the leading surfer roles in Ride the Wild Surf (1964), co-starring Tab Hunter and Fabian.
His two adult sons are Matthew and Joshua.
Runs his own production company, Handshake Films, where he produced and narrated the instruction rodeo-styled video The Penning Tape (2000) (V).
Studying with such respected acting coaches as Jeff Corey, he was discovered pumping gas by none other than Jack L. Warner and handed a Warner Bros. contract.
He took the stage name Brown from his stepfather Albert "Bud" Brown. His biological father died when he was four. Peter's initial inspiration in show business was his mother, Mina Reaume, a radio and stage actress.
Born in New York City but raised in Spokane, Washington where he graduated from North Central High School.
Stationed in Alaska as a member of the Army's 2nd Infantry Division, where he organized a theater group to put on shows for the men stationed there.
Acting protégé of John Russell and Neville Brand.
His mother was born Wilhelmina Reaume in Washington state.
Until his death in March 2016, he was the last surviving main cast member of Lawman (1958). John Russell passed away in January 1991 at age 70 and Peggie Castle in August 1973 at age 45.
Peter Brown used his real-life horse, Amigo, on the series Laredo (1965).
Personal Quotes (1)
Every actor likes to work. But there are different qualities of work. I've gone to the Philippines to make war movies in the jungles and swamps with leeches and I've ridden horses playing cowboys and Indians. I've lots of different kinds of work and I am grateful for all of it.
