Osborne was born Miles Osborne in Knox County, Texas on February 20, 1884,[1] and died in Hollywood, California at age 79 from a heart attack. Osborne specialized in westerns, and was also noted for his skill as a stage driver, and was thus much in demand from his first film in 1912 right through the early 1950s. He was working as a stunt man as late as 1948, in Ray Enright's Return of the Bad Men.

As he grew older Osborne played small character parts in such television western series as Have Gun – Will Travel, Bonanza, Bat Masterson, Rawhide and The Lone Ranger. His last role was in an episode of Gunsmoke in 1963. His career spanned 51 years, with a total of 607 films and television episodes to his credit.

He was buried at the Forest Lawn, Hollywood Hills Cemetery in Los Angeles.[2]
