Dan Haggerty, 'The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams' Star, Dead at 74

Dan Haggerty, the burly, bearded actor who became a 1970s icon playing a mountain man in "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams," died early Friday after a long battle with spinal cancer. He was 74.

Haggerty played a fugitive who flees into the wilderness and befriends a bear in a 1974 movie that became a surprise box office hit — and in a TV series of the same name that ran on NBC from 1977 to 1978.
