SLIM WHITTAKER BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Slim Whittaker was born on July 29th, 1893 in Kansas City, Missouri with the birth name Charles Orby Whitaker. By the age of seventeen he was involved with the rodeo circuit and later found work as a cowhand on a ranch in California.
 
His involvement in the entertainment industry began first by working as a stuntman on a variety of westerns. Over his career he would appear in over three hundred roles and had a very successful professional life.
 
Prior to entering films he also gained experience early on as a stage actor and worked on the other side of the industry as a stage manager. He excelled as a comedic actor as well and earned the nickname 'Slender'.

Whittaker was so prolific as a 'bad guy' during his lenghty career that he appeared with all the great western stars including Tom Mix, Tom Tyler, Hoot Gibson, Tex Ritter, Hopalong Cassidy, George 'Gabby' Hayes, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Tim McCoy, Bob Steele and even John Wayne!
 
Some of his final roles towards the end of his career were in, "Black Hills" (1947), "The Westward Trail" (1948), "Tex Granger: Midnight Rides of the Plains" (1948) and his final role was in 1949 in, "The Gal Who Took the West".

Slim Whittaker then chose to retire from the industry and remained living in Hollywood where he found work as a short- order cook for a coffee shop. He passed away on June 27th, 1960 in Los Angeles, California after suffering from a heart attack.
