Western : Which western actor had the most parts?

Which western actor had the most parts?

I'd say Myron Healey could hold the record, he was never off the screen both large and small in the Fifties a bit too much for my liking as I never though he that good. Harry Lauter, John Dehner and John Doucette were not far behind.

George "Gabby" Hayes supported just about every "B" cowboy in the business as well as John Wayne and Randolph Scott.
Roy Barcroft, "The busiest badman in westerns" harassed all of Republic's "B" cowboys as well as, appearing in many of their "A" westerns.

Ray Teal certainly had his fair share of Western supporting roles, as did Bob Steele.
