Who Remembers This Actor??

Recommended Posts

Yup, that's Clint.  Probably a stock photo from another classic, Rawhide.  I still remember the theme song, and the Blues Brothers sang it in a movie.

"Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope, throw an' brand 'em
Soon we'll be livin' high an' wide..."

My Dad was friends with Cisco kid and poncho when he lived out in California.  He was a chef at a restaurant there.  One time they stopped there in a Cadillac convertible and took him out on the town and brought him back there the next morn.  Lol said it was a great time.  Lol.

My uncle was friends with Dan Blocker aka Hoss from Bonanza.  Said he was a really good, down to earth guy. And  really loved his beer!  So did my uncle!  From the stories, I guess they put down quite a few together.

OMG, I'm old..!!! Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Lone Ranger, Bat Masterson, Cheyenne Bodie, Cisco Kid, Paladin, Wyatt Earp, Yancy Derringer, Wanted: Dead or Alive (ala Steve McQueen). Just for the animal lovers there was Flicka, Fury and Rin Tin Tin. For us Easterners, there was Davy Crockett & Danial Boone. Never forgot my 1st true love, Sky King's niece Penny! Oh La La...! That was before being infatuated with Mouseketter Annette.

Still recall Saturday mornings hovering near the radio listening to the Lone Ranger or Captain Midnight episodes. Wish I still had that Ovaltine decoder ring!  Or trips to local theater to watch westerns, short versions of course. Was a special treat when a friend invited me over to watch westerns on their new TV. Remember the TVs that were as big as refrigerators and had ~12" B&W, flickering screens?

I remember listening to radio shows prior to TV . You could use your imagination when you listened to Sgt Preston of the Yukon , Straight Arrow , The Whisperer , Inner Sanctum , The Lone Ranger , Red Ryder , Amos & Andy , The Shadow , etc ... 

Red Ryder's sidekick was Little Beaver played by Robert Blake aka Baretta . I bet Pygmy would have thought Little Beaver was a young Indian Girl ! :taunt:

No Emergency, Adam 12, Hee Haw- Corn Field County cast, or Dallas?

Emergency - a definite yes and can still hear the dispatch tone if I think about it

Adam 12 - yes

Hee Haw - yes and that cutting edge humor for it's time

Dallas - never followed that series

Dragnet.  It was later but Jack Webb from Dragnet made a show called Emergency....(squad 51, Johnny Gage and Roy DeSoto). 

In the hippie era- Mod Squad.

Who remembers the show "Mannix?  It ran from 1967-1975.  According to Wikipedia Mannix was knocked unconscious 55 times during the series run and he got shot and wounded over a dozen times.  Talk about a tough guy!  LOL

Mannix was also the first detective that I remember who carried his .38 snubby in his waistband at the small of his back...

One of the funniest things I have ever seen, Eddie....Carson was a master...He could get more laughs with the raise of an eyebrow than many comedians could get with a punchline...

BTW.. it's a good thing you didn't watch R Lee Ermey in FMJ before you went....Jack Webb was a choirboy compared to him...

And after talking to a lot of my buddies who had the bad judgement to enlist in the Marine Corps during Vietnam,  Ermey's performance was pretty authentic....

I was a pussy, so I joined the Navy...hehehe...
