Happy 85th Birthday Gregg Palmer

Born on January 25, 1927 in San Francisco, California, Gregg Palmer started out as a radio disc jockey, billed under his given name of Palmer Lee. He launched his film career in 1950, usually appearing in Westerns and crime melodramas. During the 1950s, he could most often be seen in such inexpensive Sci-fi films as “The Creature Walks Among Us” (1956) and “Zombies of Moro Tau” (1957). Before his retirement in 1983, Gregg Palmer logged in a great many TV credits, including a 13-week stint as a Chicago gunman named Harry in “Run Buddy Run” (1966). Gregg appeared in two Euro-westerns “They Call Me Providence” (1972) and “Here We Go Again, Eh Providence?” as Hurricane Kid Smith co-starring Tomas Milian and credited as Gregg Hunter. Gregg has remained active in retirement and can be found at film conventions and as a public speaker. Today we celebrate Gregg Palmer’s 85th birthday.

  1. Gregg, Happy Birthday! I saw your movie, "Dead For A Dollar." Good movie. Who were you again? Portuguese? He was a good character. Hey, do you think you could get a hold of George Hilton? I heard he's good. I'm a big fan of Spaghetti Westerns and always wished I could be in one. Well, Happy Birthday Gregg Palmer.
