Michael Ives

His entertainment career began at three years old when he joined his dad in a vaudeville trio that toured nationally. By the time he was eight, he was beginning a film career that would endure until his death in 1990. His is a name widely known throughout the movie, TV, stage and music industries. 

During his illustrious career, he racked up numerous honors, including an Emmy Award, Grammy Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement awards, induction into the Las Vegas Walk of Stars, and Kennedy Center Honors.  

Outside his show business pack, he was an enthusiastic shooter who participated in a number of fast-draw competitions. Bob Munden, the “Fastest Gun Who Ever Lived,” stated that he was the second-fastest draw in Hollywood, trailing only this entertainer. After they appeared together on “The Mike Douglas Show” in 1961, the entertainer presented Munden with a customized Colt Peacemaker in recognition of Munden's skill.
