Stoney Burke Trivia

    

Unfortunately, Stoney Burke didn't last long enough for Stoney to win the coveted "Golden Buckle".

After the series ended, Jack Lord continued to make public appearances at rodeos as Stoney Burke. He even performed rope tricks and sang some country/western songs!

Stoney Burke was pretty accurate as to the life of a rodeo rider (except for all the violence). Casey Tibbs who was a long-standing rodeo champion acted as consultant for the series. Casey was also a founder of the "Rodeo Cowboys Association".

Stoney Burke had some pretty stiff competition in its Monday night from 9 to 10PM eastern time slot. CBS was airing "Make Room for Daddy" (a.k.a. "The Danny Thomas Show) and "The Andy Griffith Show" during that same hour.

In addition to being a great actor, Jack Lord was a pretty terrific artist! The New York Metropolitan Museum acquired one of his paintings before Jack's twentieth birthday and so did the British Museum of Modern Art! Star Trek fans will be interested to know that Jack was seriously considered for the role of Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek series. When he told Gene Roddenberry and Lucille Ball who was the President of Desilu Studios that he would only agree to take the part if he could co-produce and get a percentage ownership, they quickly looked further for the role. Congratulations William Shatner! While training at the actor's studio, Jack enjoyed the company of fellow students, "Marlon Brando", "Paul Newman", and "Marilyn Monroe". Of course, Jack's best remembered for his role as "Detective Steve McGarrett" on the series, "Hawaii Five-0". He must have loved those islands because when he passed away in 1998 from heart failure, he left $40 million to the "Hawaii Community Foundation".
