One time he got to be the good guy

The television series Law of the Plainsman ran for one season 1959-60. Michael Ansara starred as an Apache Indian who was a U. S. Marshall. Because of his stern-looking features, Ansara usually played heavies, but in this particular show, of course, he was the good guy and got to display a softer side in some of the episodes.

Because of his swarthy complexion, Ansara often portrayed Indian roles. Actually he was of Syrian descent.
