Arthur “Arkansas” Hunnicutt Gravesite

Below is a photo of me taken last week placing trade silver beads from the Harley Dragoon Seminole Massacre site onto the grave of one of my heroes, Arthur “Arkansas” Hunnicutt; and a photo of him in the movie The Big Sky (1952). Arthur had a long and distinguished career in film, stage, and television, earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Big Sky. Author served as a corporal in the U.S. Army during WWII. There is a memorial to him in Arlington National Cemetery as well. He was born in Gravelly, Arkansas on February 17, 1910, and died of tongue cancer on September 26, 1979 in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 69. His final resting place is the Coop Prairie Cemetery in Mansfield, Arkansas.
