Howdy Manco!!

Col. Tim McCoy was a real cowboy from about the age of 15 years old. He served in both WW1 and WW11, achieving the rank of Colonel in the U.S. Army Air Force. He appeared in almost 100 films between 1925 and 1965, including 8 films he made with Buck Jones as a member of the Rough Riders. He often wore all black with a pearl or ivory handled six gun. He was a very stern, almost hawkish looking individual and left you with the impression that he was not one to slap your hip and yell boo at, leastwise, ya might git yer fool head blown off!!!!!!!

Harry Morgan started his film career back in the 40's. He has appeared in many westerns and t.v. series over the past 50 years, including Dragnet, with Jack Webb, back in the 50's and the classic Oxbow Incident with Henry Fonda in the 40's. He will probably be best remembered as Col. Potter on the long running M.A.S.H t.v. series, in which he replaced McClean Stevenson. One of the best actors in Hollywood during his lifetime.

Chuck Connors was a professional athelete and played for the Chicago Cubs AND the Boston Celtics before becoming an actor. He appeared in The Big Country, Old Yellar, Soylent Green and Reprisal, Ride Beyond Vengeance are just a few of his many films. He also had several t.v. series, like Branded and Werewolf, but is the role of Lucas McCain on the hit t.v. series The Rifleman that he will always be remembered for.

Sheb Wooley was BOTH an actor and singer during his film career. He appeared as Ben Miller, the brother of Frank Miller in the Academy Award winning film, High Noon with Gary Cooper. He also appeared with Clint Eastwood in the classic western film, The Outlaw, Josey Wales. He was a regular on the hit t.v. series Rawhide with Eastwood back in the late 50's. He became famous for recording the hit song, The Purple People Eater in the 50's and continued to write and record under his own name and his alter ego, Ben Coulder for decades. Under the name Ben Coulder, he did parodies of hit songs like the 70's hit, Almost Persuaded by David Houston, and the Billy Ray Cyrus hit, Achey Breaky Heart. I shall never forget the opening line in his parody of Almost Persuaded!! "Last night, all alone in a barroom.
Met a girl with a pint in her purse." Sheb Wooley was a heck of a singer AND an actor.

One of Sheb Wooley's early films was one of Davy's favorites..."Rocky Mountain" with Errol Flynn. Another was "Little Big Horn" with John Ireland & Lloyd Bridges. A great actor. He once said, "I came out to Hollywood to become a singing cowboy but when I got here in 1950 they didn't want any singing cowboys, even if you had your own guitar. So I got into the other end of the cowboy business and played mostly heavies in my film career." Tom.
