Dan Haggerty

The actor best known as Dan Haggerty started his career as a Malibu hippie, working as a stunt man and animal trainer who also appeared in bit parts in beach party movies and biker flicks. He also worked on the motorcycles used in “Easy Rider.” But his real fame came when he was cast in the 1974 low budget indie film, “The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams.” 
The "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams" (1977) star is the only person to have his star removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was actually meant to honor another actor, the late Don Haggerty, and the committee made an error in spelling. Eventually Dan received a legitimate star, now located in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
