biography

Born Harry Albershart in Mishawaka, Indiana, on September 22, 1909, as a youth Allan 'Rocky' Lane often spent summers in at his uncle's ranch in New Mexico where he developed an affinity for horses. As he matured, he briefly attended Notre Dame, playing football for the school. He drifted away from his studies and had been a photographer, model, and stage actor by the time he was 20 years old. In 1929, the handsome Lane was spotted by Fox Film Corporation (later 20th Century Fox) talent scouts and was signed to a contract. His first film role for Fox was as a romantic lead opposite June Collyer in the 1929 release Not Quite Decent, which is now a lost film. Lane made several other films at Fox but then jumped ship to Warner Bros. However, while at Warner Bros. his career floundered, and after a number of bit parts he left films in the early 1930s to play football for a fledgling team in Cincinnati, Ohio. By 1936, Lane returned to films and to 20th Century Fox, taking supporting roles in the drama Laughing at Trouble and the Shirley Temple vehicle Stowaway. After several more supporting roles at Fox, Lane longed for a starring role; therefore, he took the lead in a Republic Pictures short feature titled The Duke Comes Back (1937).

Although Allan Lane is primarily known as a western actor, he appeared in only a handful of westerns until the 1940s. After stints at Fox and Warner Bros., Lane did a number of films at RKO in the late 1930s, often appearing in crime dramas. But as his career had gone south in the early 1930s, Lane's career again began to slide badly. He then went to Republic and stayed there for the remainder of his film career. Lane's personal life proved to be as tumultuous as his film career. He was married twice, but neither marriage lasted long. His marriage to first wife Gladys survived for a few years. He married his second wife, actress Sheila Ryan, after a brief courtship in October 1945 but the union dissolved just weeks later. (Ryan went on to marry another western actor, Pat Buttram, in 1951).

later years

By most accounts, Allan Lane was difficult on the set and disliked by many of his co-stars. After the release of El Paso Stampede in 1953, Republic pulled the plug on Lane's contract and career since low-budget western features were being replaced by western television series. After a three-year hiatus, Lane returned to the screen, this time on television in the syndicated series Red Ryder. Unfortunately, the series was canceled at the end of the first season after a total of 39 episodes were shot. Lane worked little until 1960, when he was cast as the voice of the horse 'Mister Ed' on the Studebaker-sponsored TV series Mister Ed (1961-1966). The long-running series was canceled by CBS in 1966, and afterward Lane retired from acting. After a battle with cancer, Allan Lane passed away on October 27, 1973, at the age of 64. He left no immediate survivors.
