Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 2001.


He was survived by his mother, who later died in 1974 at age 90.


The muppet "Bert" on Song of the Cloud Forest (1969) was rumored to be named after Bond's character (Bert the cop) in It's A Wonderful Life (1946).


He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6933 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.


A popular urban myth holds that on the day he died, Bond was scheduled to meet singer Johnny Horton in Dallas to sign a contract to appear on Wagon Train (1957). Horton died in an auto accident, hit by a drunk driver, at 1:30 a.m. and Bond died in Dallas at noon the same day. However, Bond was only the star of the series and not a producer, so he had no say in casting.


Samuel Johnson Clayton The Searchers (1956).


An ardent but anti-intellectual patriot, he was perhaps the most vehement proponent, among the Hollywood community, of blacklisting in the witch hunts of the 1950s, and he served as a most unforgiving president of the ultra-right-wing Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals.


Sullivan in Gentleman Jim (1942), Det.


Tom Polhaus in The Maltese Falcon (1941) and the Rev. Capt.


Bond did not have any children. United States census records from 1940 show a son, Kenneth Bond, approximately 12 years old, living in his household. He was actually Bond's stepson, Kenneth Duane Childs (1927-2003), his wife Doris's son by a previous marriage.


Bond appears in the most films (seven) of the American Film Institute's list of the 100 Greatest American Movies: It Happened One Night (1934), Bringing Up Baby (1938), Gone with the Wind (1939), The Grapes of Wrath (1940), The Maltese Falcon (1941), It's A Wonderful Life (1946) and The Searchers (1956).

Director John Ford promoted Bond from extra to supporting player in the film Salute (1929), and became another fast friend. An arrogant man of little tact, yet fun-loving in the extreme, Bond was either loved or hated by all who knew him. His face and personality fit perfectly into almost any type of film, and he appeared in hundreds of pictures in his more than 30-year career, in both bit parts and major supporting roles. In the films of Wayne and Ford, particularly, he was nearly always present. Among his most memorable roles are John L.


Entered films in 1928 while attending the University of Southern California.
