Robert Lawrence Crawford Jr. (born May 13, 1944) is an American actor who portrayed the character Andy Sherman on the NBC television series Laramie in 1959 and 1960. He was cast as the younger brother of Slim Sherman, portrayed by John Smith, owner of the fictitious Sherman Ranch and Relay Station some twelve miles east of Laramie, Wyoming. Their co-star was Robert Fuller in the role of former gunfighter Jess Harper. Crawford's role on Laramie ended in 1960, when Andy Sherman was shipped off to boarding school. Crawford is sometimes credited as Bobby Crawford Jr., or without the generational suffix as Bobby Crawford or Robert L. Crawford.[1]

Personal life

His father, Robert L. Crawford Sr., was a well-known Emmy-nominated film editor[2] and occasional actor, who portrayed Detective Phil Burns on the syndicated television series, Manhunt.[3][4][5]


Before and after Laramie, Crawford appeared in some two dozen film and television productions. His television guest appearances included Walt Disney family adventure series Zorro, The Californians, The Donna Reed Show, National Velvet, Dragnet, Combat!, Mr. Novak, Rawhide, The Rifleman, Cheyenne, and Gunsmoke.[6]

In 1959, Crawford's appearance on the CBS anthology series Playhouse 90 was nominated for Best Single Performance on the 11th Primetime Emmy Awards. That year's Emmy Awards also nominated Crawford's younger brother, Johnny Crawford, for his recurring portrayal of Mark McCain, son of Lucas McCain, on The Rifleman.[7]

In the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, Crawford was a production assistant, associate producer, and producer on films such as Slaughterhouse-Five (1972), The Sting (1973), Slap Shot (1977), The World According to Garp (1982), and The Parasite (1997).[8]

    A few references incorrectly credit Robert Jr. as the Manhunt character Detective Phil Burns, rather than Robert Sr. However, Robert Jr. was only 14/15 when the episodes aired in 1959, and multiple references correctly credit the father Robert Sr as the Manhunt character,; retrieved 2012-02-07.
