MINI BIO:

Burly, surly-looking and in the 'Ernest Borgnine tradition', Claude Akins had a late start in films and almost inevitably found himself cast as villains. Equally inevitably, it seemed, his later career brought better and more sympathetic roles, and his cheerful grin was also to be seen in leading roles in TV series.

Claude Akins Quotes:

Ben Lane: Frank, take a ride up river. See if they crossed ahead of us. If they cut our track, it's gonna put us between a rock and a hard place.


Rev. Jeremiah Brown: [preaching] Oh, Lord of the tempest and the thunder, strike down this sinner, as thou did thine enemies of old in the days of the Pharaohs! Let him know the terror of thy sword! Let his soul, for all eternity, writhe in anguish and damnation!
Rachel Brown: No! No, Pa! Don't pray to destroy Bert!
Rev. Jeremiah Brown: Lord! We ask this same curse for those who ask grace for this sinner! Though they be blood of my blood and flesh of my FLESH!


Ben Lane: A lot of money has a way of making a man all greed inside.
Jefferson Cody: Such as?
Ben Lane: It can get him to thinking of doing things he might not otherwise do. You know, it's a long way to Lawrenceburg. It wouldn't surprise me if somebody didn't try to take that woman away from you.
Jefferson Cody: Like you, for instance?
Ben Lane: Like me, in particular.
