talking to an old guy and he remembered a singing cowboy with a horse called Ladybird - apparently they gigged in England?

Anybody any idea who he's talking about?

Administrative / Biographical History

Cal McCord (1904-1983) was born Hertzel Spenadl in London's Whitechapel in July 1904 and became popular in Britain during the 1940s-1960s as a Canadian cowboy, rope-spinner, juggler, singer, actor and comedian. The son of Benjamin Spenadl and his wife Anne Louise Ginger who married in Mile End in 1898 and had only one son, but a daughter Hannah who died aged 6 months and six other daughters Rachael, Frieda, Mendel, Zeasel, Malka and Surya, Hertzel, went to Canada aged 16 or 17 where he joined the army. He learned rope-spinning, became a performer with the Canadian Army and with 'the Macordialities' spent six years entertaining Canadian troops across Europe during WWII.

He appeared in a variety of television programmes in England including the BBC television documentary How to be a Cowboy (1953), and the BBC radio series, Riders of the Range (1949). His notable film credentials include Carry on Cowboy (1966) and Never Take Sweets From a Stranger (1960). McCord continued to perform in variety shows and appeared at many music halls, competitions, fetes and fairs across Britain throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Eleanor (Lea) McCord performed in amateur dramatics and variety shows throughout her life. Prior to marrying McCord she was also a performer for the British Army entertainment branch (E.N.S.A)."
