Dayle Lymoine Robertson (July 14, 1923 – February 27, 2013) was an American actor best known for his starring roles on television. He played the roving investigator Jim Hardie in the NBC/ABC television series Tales of Wells Fargo, and Ben Calhoun, the owner of an incomplete railroad line in ABC's The Iron Horse. He was often presented as a deceptively thoughtful but modest western hero. From 1968 to 1970, Robertson was the fourth and final host of the syndicated Death Valley Days anthology series.

Hi Sandee. Dale has moved out of the nursing home to be with his wife once more. I'm afraid that I can't give his new address but I will copy your note and send it to them next time I write. Dale isn't very mobile now but I am sure he is delighted to be home with his wife again! I also love listening to Dale's CD. I was amazed to find that he sang so well and he told me that he had written two of the songs and contributed to a third.

Is there an update on Dale's health?
I hope that he and Susan are doing well.
I always send him a birthday card-where do I send it this year? Was he able to leave the nursing home?
I think of him daily and still listen to his CD every day.

Thank you for replying,i hope for the best..

Dale isn't very well and is receiving treatment in a nursing home at the moment.

Robbie MurrayAug 3, 2011

hi any recent news on Mr Robertson at all?

Anne, I check this site every so often and copy what is new so I can send messages to Dale and his wife. I was really very lucky as a lady in Arizona suggested I fly from the UK to a Western Show in Scottsdale in 2001. At the same time, I contacted Dale's website, no longer running, to tell them of errors. Dale's wife replied and thus started an email relationship. She warned Dale that I would be going to the Festival so when I arrived, he knew who I was! I then went to 4 more festivals until the last one in 2004 and was able to help him out on his stall, taking his money while he signed autographs. He stopped using his computer after his heart operation in 2005 so I now keep in contact with his wife. The amazing thing for me was the fact that his character was so much like his character on Tales of Wells Fargo so I knew him pretty well. Cheers, Jeannine

As I said in my recent posting, I have loved Dale since 1951, I came to Toronto, Canada in1957 and brought 1000 (one thousand) photos of him I had( collected over the years, some with his signature, photos that I had sent for (before I left Glasgow, Scotland). I have just recently got a computer and look him up often, I only found out tonight from reading this section hat he is not well, I am sad about that. Maybe I might hear from someone, thank you

I have been a fan of Dale Robertsons since 1951, when I saw Golden Girl.

Patrick J. PattonApr 24, 2011

I don't think Dale will EVER be forgotten.Too many great childhood memories. I still think his best movie was "A day of fury" He was REAL baddd in that

Jeannine AudcentMar 13, 2011

Judy, Dale doesn't sign autographs anymore and his wife returns all written requests straight back to the senders. Dale has various medical problems now and can no longer hold a pen properly. However, I have copied your email and will post it to Dale when I write this week. I am sure he will be happy to know that you have not forgotten him. Jeannine

Hi I use to visit Dale at the Los Alamitos racetrack when he was there and racing his great horse Rebel Cause.I was 15 at the time and would always go and ask for his autograph. I am a huge fan. I would like an autographed picture of him. He probably doesn't remembere me but he always was so nice to me. My address is 3634 D St. Bremerton. Wa 98312 apt.A. thank you..judy

I knew Susan and Nancy Robbins back in LA in the middle sixties: Nancy married radio exec. Tim Sullivan and last I knew they lived in Rancho Sante Fe; Nancy and Susan were identical twins. I'd love to connect again with both of them. Jere Moorman
