Dan Haggerty Actor

Dan haggerty

Dan Haggerty (born 19 November 1942) is an American actor. He is best known as Grizzly Adams in the title role of the 1974 Sunn Classic Pictures feature, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. From this feature film evolved the NBC television series which ran from 1977 to 1978, and Haggerty became famous to millions of nature-loving movie-goers for his popular portrayal of John Grizzly Adams. Haggerty has proven to be a durable and versatile journeyman actor starring in multiple films each year. Haggerty's preference in movie-making is to do outdoor films designed to entertain the entire family, although his versatility as an actor can be seen in other feature films as a psychologist, a biker, or as in recent film, a detective. Grizzly Adams" was Haggerty's first starring role in a film, followed by the title role of Jacob Fremont in Sun's The Adventures of Frontier Fremont. Haggerty excels in animal pictures because of his natural ability handling all types of animals, enabling him to do scenes that other actors would find difficult.

King of the Mountain is a 1981 film starring Harry Hamlin, Joseph Bottoms, Deborah Van Valkenburgh, Richard Cox, Seymour Cassel and Dennis Hopper about a group that race their cars up and down Mulholland Drive for both money and prestige. The film's primary focus is Steve, who has found himself generally content with his uncomplicated life of working and racing. This creates some amount of tension between him and his friends, who have been losing their interest in racing and have been attempting to make serious inroads in the music industry. Steve's blossoming relationship with singer Tina causes him to re-think his mantra, as he realizes that a truly fulfilling life involves more than just work and play. The film was poorly regarded critically and did not perform well in the box office, although it was significant in being among the first films about street racing and communities of street racers, as well as because it was inspired by the activities of real people who raced in the Los Angeles area. It also marked somewhat of a return for Dennis Hopper, who had spent several months secluded away from Los Angeles prior to making his appearance.
