RIP Jack Ging
American actor Jack Ging died at his Palm Springs, California home on September 10, 2022. He was 90. Born October 30, 1931, in Alva, Oklahoma. Ging enjoyed a rather fruitful career as a television actor from the late 1950s to the early 1990s before retiring in California with his wife "Apache" in 1994. During that time, he worked in over 100 productions, mostly for television, including many of the western genre television shows produced in the 1960s. His success as a supporting character transferred to the big screen and he became a minor player in the boom of Hollywood westerns in the late 1960s and early 1970s, usually in supporting roles opposite Clint Eastwood. He was seen as Marshal Ace Hayes in 1968’s “Hang ‘Em High”, as Morgan Allen in 1973’s “Hight Plains Drifter. His only Euro-western appearance was an uncredited role as the preacher in “Another Man, Another Chance” (1977) starring James Caan and Genevieve Bujold.
