About Granville Owen:

    Jeff York, who went by the name Granville Owen in this film, plays Li'l Abner Yokum to perfection.  He's tall, good-looking, and has all the facial expressions one would expect of a real-life Li'l Abner.  And at some camera angles, he looks almost exactly like Jethro Bodine from the much later "The Beverly Hillbillies" TV show.  Granville really captures Abner's naivety and stubborn spirit!  He was a very busy actor before and after this film.  You may remember him best as Mike Fink in Disney's "Davy Crockett and the River Pirates" movie from 1956. 

    York was born March 23, 1912 in Los Angeles, California, USA.  He died on October 11, 1995 in Woodland Hills, California, USA.
