What Was Ed Ames Cause of De@th?
Ed Ames, who played Mingo, the loyal Cherokee companion of Daniel Boone, in the 1960s NBC series Daniel Boone, has p@ssed away as an actor and musician. He was 95. Ames D!ed on Sunday at his Los Angeles home, his wife Jeanne told The Hollywood Reporter, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Ames was born on July 9, 1927, in Malden, Massachusetts; his parents had a total of eleven children, four of whom d!ed in infancy. The children of Ukrainian immigrants were raised on a diet of Shakespeare and Saturday night broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera by their mother.
Since Urick was so difficult to remember, New York satirist Abe Burrows proposed changing his name. The two brothers accompanied Ames. With hits like “You, You, You” and “Sentimental Me,” the trio was a staple of the 1950s music scene.
In the 1960s, Ames decided to switch gears and pursue acting. He made his debut in the leading role in a production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible that ran off-Broadway. As the Oxford-educated Native American Mingo, Ames became a household name in the 1960s because of the action thriller “Daniel Boone,” starring Fess Parker as the legendary frontiersman.
In preparation for his role in “Daniel Boone,” Ames learned to hurl a tomahawk, and on April 27, 1965, he made a comedic appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.” Ames still thinks back fondly on this show as a career highlight.
A cowboy was sketched on a piece of wood, and Carson pushed Ames to demonstrate his skill by throwing a tomahawk at it. The studio audience howled with laughter when Ames’ throw caught the wooden cowboy in the groin.
