Biography by Hal Erickson

American leading man Larry Pennell kicked off his film career in 1955. Pennell briefly became a TV idol when he co-starred with Ken Curtis in the widely syndicated adventure series Ripcord (1962). He later spoofed his macho image as conceited, image-conscious movie star Dash Riprock on The Beverly Hillbillies. Larry Pennell kept busy into the 1990s in character roles and cameos, most memorably as Clark Gable in the 1980 TV movie Marilyn: The Untold Story.
