PETER DUEL BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Peter Duel was born on February 24th, 1940 in Rochester, New York with the birth name Peter Ellstrom Deuel.  After high School he majored in English at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York but only attended college for two years before realizing he had more of an interest in acting.  He then studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City from 1957-1961. He began his career as a stage actor and toured with the National Road Company.  Peter then decided to relocate to Hollywood and he gained some experience first appearing on a number of television shows such as, "Gomer Pyle, USMC", "Channing" and "Combat!".
 
After signing a seven year contract with Universal Studios, Duel worked on a number of films and television series such as having a recurring role on the television series, "Gidget" (1965) followed by a role on, "Love on a Rooftop" (1966).  He also had guest appearances on, "The Psychiatrist", "The Bold Ones", "Ironside" and "Marcus Welby, M.D" and on the film, "Cannon for Cordoba" (1970).
 
When he was cast in the pilot of "Alias Smith and Jones" (1971) it turned out to be a big hit.  While the show was on a break he also stared in a television play called, "The Scarecrow".
 
His career was going so well that his fan base was shocked to find out he had alcohol and depression problems and on December 31st 1971 he was found dead in Hollywood, California after suffering from a gunshot wound ruled as suicide.  He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery.
