Michael Pate Facts
Twice played Indians who rescued heroes of TV westerns from painful punishments. In a 2-13-59 episode of "Rawhide" (1959), he intervened to keep Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood from being flogged while tied to tree trunks. In a 9-15-67 episode of "Hondo" (1967), he saved Ralph Taeger from having hot coals poured on his bare chest while lying staked out on the ground.

Was the first actor to play James Bond's CIA counterpart, Felix Leiter, in the television adaptation of Casino Royale. In this version, however, he is renamed Clarence Leither and, since Bond and Leiter's nationalities were reversed, he was an MI6 agent instead.

Interviewed in "It Came from Horrorwood: Interviews with Moviemakers in the SF and Horror Tradition" by Tom Weaver (McFarland, 1996).
