wikipedia notes: Zane Grey was known as an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the rugged Old West. As of June 2007, the Internet Movie Database credits Grey with 110 films, one TV episode, and a series, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater based loosely on his novels and short stories.
Zane Grey died of heart failure on October 23, 1939 at his home in Altadena, California.
