    Speaking of McQueen, "Nevada Smith" is a good one, great cast.

    I loved Last of the Dogmen, if he had been cast in
    old time westerns, I think that Tom Berenger would
    have had a really good career.

    He had a western show on USA at one point. It only lasted a season or so but was pretty good. I’ll have to find the name though.

    I watched Gunsmoke shows and the later movies all weekend except for a little while Saturday when I was in the woods.

    Great movie. He was good in Johnson County War too.

    Not a typical western, but I watched a couple of episodes of Yancy Derringer on Amazon Prime last night. I loved that show when I was a kid.

    Not a western but I liked him in The Substitute when he played a mercenary posing as a teacher to clean up a school.

    Wasn’t he just in the first couple? Treat Williams was in one or two and they weren’t as good. Haven’t seen any of them in years.

    Only saw the first one. I think he was in the second but I haven't seen it.

  13. Fess Parker, Hugh O'Brien (Wyatt Earp), Richard Boone (Palladin), Chuck Connors (The Rifleman) ... and James Arness (Gunsmoke) - those were the days! Heck, Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels too (The Lone Ranger).

    Oooh. Old school.

    Remember Connors in "Branded?"
    Or Nick Adams in "The Rebel?"

    I loved "Lawman" with John Russell, who was also in "Pale Rider."

    Another of my favorites was Bonanza. It was also the first TV show I saw in color.
    Hoss was my favorite.
    Guess I'm giving away how old I am!

    Gunsmoke and Bonanza were soap opera's for the whole family.

    Except that both of them lacked a critical component - that of a continuing story line. Lots of today's shows do now maintain that continuing story line but they lack some of the other qualities of yesteryear's shows.

    I like both styles...it really just depends on the story and show to determine which is needed. It worked for them, IMO.

    Gunsmoke always tickled me though when they’d reuse actors for different characters, sometimes within just a few episodes of each other.
