Utah's Little Hollywood

— Kanab Utah "Walk of Fame" —

One of Hollywood's top character actors and one of the screen's most beloved sidekicks was George "Gabby" Hayes. His career spanned more than 50 years starting in silent films as a heavy and continuing as a gruff but loveable pal to such cowboy stars as Roy Rogers, Randolph Scott, Dale Robertson, William Boyd and Wild Bill Elliott. "Gabby" came to Kanab in 1943 to co-star for Republic Studios in their epic film, "In Old Oklahoma" starring John Wayne, Albert Dekker and Martha Scott. George "Gabby" Hayes passed away in 1961 after appearing in more than 150 films.
