Robert Horton, who played Flint McCullough on Wagon Train, had such a beautiful speaking voice. Was he a singer? 

—Robert and Donna Baker, Palmyra, Mo.
Yes. In fact, the reason Horton left the Western TV series in 1962 was to perform in nightclubs and theaters across the U.S. and Australia, which he did for several years. In 1963, he performed on Broadway in 110 in the Shade, the musical version of The Rainmaker. He starred also in the 1965-1966 TV Western A Man Called Shenandoah. The Los Angeles native, 87, whose hobbies once included collecting fancy cars and piloting, is retired.
