TV’s Wyatt Earp, Hugh O’Brian, has died at 91

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hugh O’Brian, who shot to fame as Sheriff Wyatt Earp in what was hailed as television’s first adult Western, has died. He was 91.

A representative from HOBY, a philanthropic organization O’Brian founded, says he died at home Monday morning in Beverly Hills.

Until “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp” debuted in September 1955, most TV Westerns — “The Lone Ranger,” ”Hopalong Cassidy,” the singing cowboys’ series — were aimed at adolescent boys.
