Birth Name:Keith Larsen Burt
On the October 19, 1958, episode of his TV series "Northwest Passage" (1958), Larsen was relieved of his shirt, stood against a post and flogged. During the "Golden Age" of the TV western, many of its heroes were subjected to similar "stripped-and-whipped" scenes, (Robert Horton in "Wagon Train" (1957), Ty Hardin in "Bronco" (1958), Lee Majors in "The Big Valley" (1965), etc.), but Larsen was the first to feel the lash across his bare back.
Son, Eric Larsen, with Vera Miles, was born on 30 April 1961 in Burbank, California.
Served in the Navy during WWII and became involved in stage acting in Santa Monica after his discharge.
Strapping, dark-haired, ruggedly handsome actor who appeared in mostly secondary roles in a number of 1950s film actioneers. Later produced, directed and wrote his own adventure vehicles.
Best known for starring as "Brave Eagle" (1955) on TV. He then went on to play Major Robert Rogers in "Northwest Passage" (1958) and "The Aquanauts" (1960). All three series lasted one season or less.
