Max Terhune (February 12, 1891 – June 5, 1973), born in Franklin, Indiana, was an American film actor. He appeared in nearly 70 films, mostly B-westerns, between 1936 and 1956.
Terhune was in 21 The Three Mesquiteers (co-starring with Robert Livingston and Ray "Crash" Corrigan in the Republic series) and The Range Busters (24 entries with Ray Corrigan and John King at Monogram Pictures).
He had supporting roles with Gene Autry and the Johnny Mack Brown westerns at Monogram, playing the comic sidekick (usually named either Lullaby Joslin or just Alibi). He always traveled the range with his dummy Elmer sharing his saddle. Terhune was not only a splendid ventriloquist, but a magician. Card tricks were his forte, and he often performed such in his movies. His former vaudeville act included juggling and doing impressions, talents also incorporated into his sidekick roles.
