George Hayes Day -- "Gabby" Hayes - starred in hundreds of Republic Westerns. Gabby was sidekick to many of the Western Stars, among them John Wayne, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Wild Bill Elliott and Roy Rogers. He was always the super friend and the guy you could depend upon.
Gabby Hayes, one of the most beloved of all Western movie characters and teller of tall tales to show up on the silver screen.
Author of such outrageous sayings as; "Dern Persnickety Women", "Why, you young Whipper Snapper" and "You're dern tootin' "
As a young man, George Hayes worked in a circus and played semi-pro baseball. He appeared in vaudeville and on the legitimate stage, primarily in stock companies. Retired in his 40s, he lost much of his money in the 1929 stock market crash and was forced to return to work. He had made his film debut prior to the crash, and continued working steadily until his second retirement in his late 60s. He gained fame as Hopalong Cassidy's sidekick Windy Halliday in many films from 1936 to 1939. Leaving the Cassidy films, he was legally precluded from using the "Windy" nickname, and so took on the sobriquet "Gabby", and was so billed from about 1940. One of the few sidekicks to land on the annual list of Top Ten Western Box-office Stars, he did so repeatedly. In his early films he alternated between whiskered comic relief sidekicks and clean-shaven bad guys, but by the later 1930s he worked almost exclusively as a Western sidekick to stars such as John Wayne, Roy Rogers and Randolph Scott. After his last film, in 1950, he starred as the host of a network television show devoted to stories of the old West for children, "The Gabby Hayes Show" (1950). Offstage an elegant and well-appointed connoisseur and man-about-town, Hayes devoted the final years of his life to his investments.
