Allen Case Poster

Trivia (3)

During the Golden Age of TV westerns, most cowboy-heroes were tied up and lashed with a whip in at least one episode. Allen Case's turn came in an episode of The Deputy (1959) when, tied shirtless to a post, he was flogged by a man who mistakenly thought Case had gotten fresh with his woman.

Case's success on TV's The Deputy (1959) show prompted Columbia to release a long-play record called "Allen Case -- The "Deputy" Sings". Frank De Vol conducted the orchestra. On Side 1, Case sang "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered", "The Very Thought of You", "Don't Blame Me", "Again", "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "These Foolish Things". On Side 2, he sang "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows", "I Only Have Eyes for You", "My Romance", "For All We Know", "That Old Feeling" and "I'll be Seeing You". Case appeared on the album cover looking wistfully romantic in a casual shirt that wasn't part of his western wardrobe.

Died of a heart attack while on vacation in Truckee, California.
