Norman Rockwell Museum is saddened to learn of the passing of our friend Walt Reed (1917-2015).

Actor. He was one of Hollywood's premier character actors from the 1940s through the 1960s best known for his work in movie and TV westerns. He appeared in nearly 100 feature films and several hundred TV shows. In 2000 he received a Golden Boot Award which is the western-movie equivalent of an Oscar. A month before his death the city of Santa Cruz declared Walter Reed Day. Reed arrived at a local theater in a white horse drawn carriage where they showed his 1956 western "Seven Men fron Now" which had recently been restored. They also had him imprint his hand and feet in a slab of cement outside the theater.
