<quoted text>I agree! It's also amazing to see some of the then not so famous actors climbing up the ladder!
Jeanne Cooper, then a virtual unknown, for example, guest starred in episodes of "Have Gun, Will Travel, "The Big Valley", and "Bonanza".
Since 1973, she's played "Catherine Chancellor" on the daytime soap, "The Young And The Restless".
At age 84, she's now leaving the show and will retire, I hear.
I watched Lena Horne in "Death of a Gun Fighter" the other day. It's remarkable how she past for being white.
I too, like "Have Gun Will Travel” The thought of a hired assassin that will travel during those days is interesting.

I was amazed when I first started watching Westerns to see Charles Bronson as an ardent Western actor.

In all his movies he promotes the same style: Vengeance.

Lucas McCain!
I was watching him the other day!!!!
Sounds like you spend most of your days watching TV Land. Isn't that geared for kids ages 6 to 12?

I wouldn't insult the millions of adult fans of TV Westerns by saying that!

I'm A HUGE fan of the Classic Westerns. Most any western made after 1975 pretty much s u c k s.
Sergio Leone's, "Spaghetti Westerns", are among my favorites. Forget that lame commercial spewn TV Land and switch to commercial free,'Encore Westerns'.

One show I can't stand is Gene Autry and his sidekick. It's almost as degrading as The Lone Ranger and Tonto.
I like Gene Autry.

Also, the cane antics of Bat Masterson can't be matched.

I loved Rawhide, I always wondered what happened to Eric Fleming, especially after the career Clint had.
Then I found out he drowned aged 41, in the last weeks of filming a movie that never got released.
That's very interesting. He was a great actor, indeed!

Sort of surprised that Woody Strode isn't getting mentioned. Being this is an AA forum and everyone's favorite western actors seem to be white.

Sergeant Rutledge??

Never understood Chuck Connors in The Rifleman.
He prided himself on being a man that minds his own business and yet every show he was up in someone else's business. Always wondered how he ever got any work done on his ranch. His kid was a bit of a wimp .
