Talk:Broncho Billy Anderson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


According to IMDB, and some weak google hit evidence (compare "Anderson, Bronco Billy" vs "Anderson, Broncho Billy"), he used "Broncho" rather than "Bronco" -- some webpages suggest that that's a more archaic spelling of "Bronco." Can someone clear this up? Zyqqh 00:20, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Date of birth[edit]

It is different than the one at Find-A-Grave. Lincher 19:01, 24 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The first section, "Birth," says that the actor's birth name was Max Aronson. Immediately afterwards he is referred to several times as "Anderson," before it is explained in the next section that he adopted the professional name of Gilbert M. Anderson. Naturally, this is very confusing!

Then in the "Film" section, it says that "in his seventies" he made a cameo appearance in "The Bounty Killer" of 1965. Since he was born in 1880, he would be in his eighties (about 85), not in his seventies.

As to the spelling controversy over Broncho/Bronco, as a boy in the 1940s (already a film buff, with my own projector and library of 8mm films!) I always saw it spelled "Broncho" and even then wondered why it was "wrong," but my dad said that it was spelled that way in "the old days." Later, people apparently began dropping the 'h' when the word was used generically. This may not be "proof," but it accords with a common type of evolution in language.
