Myron Daniel Healey (June 8, 1923 — December 21, 2005) was an American actor. He began his Hollywood, California, career during the early 1940s in bit parts and minor supporting roles at various studios. Healey was born in Petaluma, California, and served in World War II as an Air Corps navigator and bombardier, flying in B-26 Martin Marauders in the European Theatre. He continued that military duty, retiring in the early 1960s as a captain in the United States Air Force Reserve. Returning to film work after the war, Healey played villains and henchmen in low budget western films. In the post-war period, he was often seen in Monogram studio films, which starred Johnny Mack Brown, Jimmy Wakely and Whip Wilson. In the 1950s, Healey moved to more bad guy roles in other films, including the Bomba and Jungle Jim series, crime dramas, and more westerns. Playing a good guy for a change, he was Phyllis Coates's partner in Panther Girl of the Kongo (1955). For the 1958-59 season, Healey replaced Douglas Fowley as Doc Holliday in the popular western TV series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. From 1959 to 1961, he played Maj./Col.
