The Lawman at Disneyland

John Lawrence Russell was an actor and World War II veteran who played Marshal Dan Troop in the ABC western TV show "Lawman" from 1958-1962. Here he is with his family enjoying a day at Disneyland, on February 15, 1959, right at the height of his popularity. Looks like he and the family (or are these just adoring fans?) are about to get on a raft to tour the Rivers of America.

I've often wondered if he was the model for the Joor Muffler Man in Escondido. Same face, same build.
