Actor Dan Haggerty, who died Friday at age 74, was best known for his role as mountain man James Capen "Grizzly" Adams in the 1974 feature film, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, which then became a 1977-78 NBC series of the same name. He later starred in two TV movie sequels, Once Upon a Starry Night (1978) and The Capture of Grizzly Adams (1982).

Other film credits include Muscle Beach Party (1964), Snow Tigers (aka When The North Wind Blows, 1974), The Adventures of Frontier Fremont (1976), King of the Mountain (1981), Ladies Night (1983), Elves (1989), Grizzly Mountain (1997) and Escape to Grizzly Mountain (2000) as well as the 1980 ABC miniseries, Condominium.

Below you can watch Dan Haggerty in Muscle Beach Party (as Biff the bodybuilder), The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (the 1974 film and the first episode of the NBC series), a 1977 Dean Martin Celebrity Roast special (as the guest of honor), and an interview from the 2013 DVD release of The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams: Season Two.
