Pat Conway Actor

Pat conway

Patrick Douglas Conway, known as Pat Conway (January 9, 1931—April 24, 1981), was an American actor best known for his role as young but tough Sheriff Clay Hollister on the ABC and then syndicated western television series Tombstone Territory (1957–1960). He was a maternal grandson of silent film star Francis X. Bushman (1883–1966). Conway was born in Los Angeles, California, to director Jack Conway (1887–1952) and the former Virginia Bushman (born 1908 - deceased). He was a maternal nephew of actor Ralph Bushman (1903–1978), sometimes cited as Francis X. Bushman, Jr., and the art director Bruce Bushman (1911–1972). As Sheriff Hollister in the pre-statehood boom town of Tombstone, located south of Tucson in Arizona Territory and known by the sobriquet, "the town too tough to die", Conway co-starred with Richard Eastham as Harris Claibourne, the editor of the actual newspaper, the Tombstone Epitaph. The series ran on ABC in the 1957-1958 season opposite the sitcom Father Knows Best, then on NBC, returned to the ABC schedule for the second half of the 1959 season, and was then placed in syndication before it ceased production in June 1960.
