    More Details Hide Details McCoy was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1974. On January 16, 2010 McCoy was inducted into the Hot Springs County (Wyoming) Hall of Fame.

  • 1952
    Age 60
    McCoy hosted a KTLA television show in Los Angeles in 1952, called "The Tim McCoy Show", for children on weekday afternoons and Saturdays, in which he provided authentic history lessons on the Old West and showed his old western movies.
    More Details Hide Details His co-host was the actor Iron Eyes Cody who, while of Italian lineage, played an American Indian both on and off screen. McCoy won a local Emmy but didn't attend to receive the award. He was competing against "Webster Webfoot" in the "Best Children's Show" category and refused to show up, saying, "I'll be damned if I'm going to sit there and get beaten by a talking duck!"
  • FIFTIES
  • 1946
    Age 54
    His second marriage was to Inga Arvad in 1946.
    More Details Hide Details They had two sons, Ronnie and Terry.
  • 1942
    Age 50
    In 1942, McCoy ran for the Republican nomination for the open US Senate Seat from Wyoming.
    More Details Hide Details Interestingly enough, during that campaign, he established the first statewide radio hookup in Wyoming broadcasting history. He lost in the primary and within 48 hours volunteered for active duty with the U.S. Army. He had maintained his Army Reserve commission and was immediately accepted. McCoy spent the war in the U.S. Army and performed liaison work with the Army Air Forces in Europe, winning several decorations. He retired from the army and, according to lore, never lived in Wyoming again. His "Eagle's Nest" ranch was sold. He retired from films after the war, except for a few cameo appearances much later.
  • FORTIES
  • 1941
    Age 49
    Arvad had two previous marriages and an affair with John F. Kennedy in late 1941 into 1942.
    More Details Hide Details Arvad was already being followed by the FBI when Kennedy was introduced to her. J. Edgar Hoover had his agents extend their investigation through wire-taps. There was no evidence found to show Arvad was guilty of "any wrongdoing" but that didn't deter Hoover's FBI from continued wire-taps of Arvad and Kennedy when they were together.
    In 1941 Buck Jones recruited McCoy to co-star in "The Rough Riders" series, alongside Jones and Raymond Hatton.
    More Details Hide Details The eight films, released by Monogram Pictures, were very popular, and might have continued but McCoy declined to renew his contract, opting to pursue other interests.
  • 1938
    Age 46
    McCoy was available for pictures again in 1938, and low-budget producers (including Maurice Conn and Sam Katzman) engaged him at his standard salary of $4000 weekly, for eight films a year.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1936
    Age 44
    McCoy worked steadily in movies until 1936, when he left Hollywood, first to tour with the Ringling Brothers Circus and then with his own "wild west" show.
    More Details Hide Details The show was not a success and is reported to have lost $300,000, of which $100,000 was McCoy's own money. It folded in Washington, D.C. and the cowboy performers were each given $5 and McCoy's thanks. The Indians on the show were returned to their respective reservations by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
  • 1932
    Age 40
    Later, in 1932, McCoy would star in Two Fisted Law alongside future Western legends, John Wayne and Walter Brennan.
    More Details Hide Details
  • THIRTIES
  • 1931
    Age 39
    McCoy married Agnes Miller, the daughter of stage actor and producer Henry Miller and actress Bijou Heron. Their marriage resulted in three children: son Gerald, daughter Margarita, and son D'Arcy. They were divorced in 1931 and McCoy kept a portion of the ranch holdings in Hot Springs County, Wyoming.
    More Details Hide Details Agnes McCoy was rewarded with that portion known as the "Eagles Nest".
  • 1929
    Age 37
    In 1929 he was summoned back to Hollywood personally by Carl Laemmle of Universal Pictures, who insisted that McCoy would star in the first talking western serial, The Indians Are Coming.
    More Details Hide Details The serial was very successful.
  • 1922
    Age 30
    In 1922, he was asked by the head of Famous Players-Lasky, Jesse L. Lasky, to provide American Indian extras for the Western extravaganza, The Covered Wagon (1923).
    More Details Hide Details He brought hundreds of "his" Indians to the Utah location and served as technical advisor on the film. After the filming was completed, McCoy was asked to bring a much smaller group of Indians to Hollywood, for a stage presentation preceding each showing of the film. McCoy's stage show was very popular, running eight months in Hollywood and several more months in London and Paris. McCoy returned to his Wyoming ranch, but Irving Thalberg of MGM soon signed him to a contract to star in a series of outdoor adventures and McCoy rose to stardom. His first MGM feature was War Paint (1926), featuring epic scenes of the Wind River Indians on horseback, staged by McCoy and director Woody Van Dyke. (Footage from War Paint was reused in many low-budget westerns, well into the 1950s.) War Paint set the tone for future McCoy westerns, in that Indians were always portrayed sympathetically, and never as bloodthirsty savages. One notable McCoy feature for MGM was The Law of the Range (1928), in which he starred with Joan Crawford. The coming of talking pictures, and the temporary inability to record sound outdoors, resulted in MGM terminating its Tim McCoy series and McCoy returning once more to his ranch.
