William Bishop played some great bad guys in a few of George Montgomery's westerns (Gun Belt, Texas Rangers, Cripple Creek), as well as working quite a bit with Universal (Redhead from Wyoming, The Raiders). He worked with Randolph Scott a few times (The Walking Hills, Coroner Creek), with Jock Mahoney (Overland Pacific), played the Sundance Kid opposite Gene Evans' Butch Cassidy in Wyoming Renegades, and appeared in numerous others, his last being The Oregon Trail. I will also always remember him from the comedy series he did with James Dunn called "It's a Great Life" (I think that was the title). Recently obtained two of his westerns on DVD (Phantom Stagecoach & White Squaw) in which he plays the lead and look forward to watching them next week when I start having some evenings free. I have always enjoyed his work and hope to someday find a copy of a film (perhaps it is amongst the lost films of Hollywood) called Thunderhoof....basicaly a four character western with Preston Foster, Mary Stuart, William Bishop & a horse. I've read about it and have a still from it and it sounds and looks like a really good one. He died way too young from results of tobacco use.

Howdy Pards!!

What is left to say about Barbara Stanwyck????? A true film legend. Her 2nd husband was none other than Robert Taylor, considered the best looking man in Hollywood and HE spent his wedding night with his mother!!!!!!!!! She appeared in over 90 films and 2 t.v. series , in a career that spanned 1927-1986. She is called the best actress to never win an Oscar, although she was finally awarded an honorary Oscar for her contribution to film. Although better known for films like Double Indemnity, Stella Dallas and Meet Jane Doe and others, she did appear in Cattle Queen Of Montana, Forty Guns, Maverick Queen and Annie Oakley. She will probably be best remembered as the matriarch (Victoria) of the Barkley family on the 60's t.v. series, The Big Valley.

Sonny Tufts was a r-o-u-n-d-e-r, make no mistake about it! He was probably better known for his off screen antics, than his on screen performances He appeared in The Seven Year Itch, Cat Women On The Moon, Here Come The Waves and made numerous appearances on t.v. westerns, but it is for being found drunk, lying on the sidewalk in 1949, being sued by 2 women for biting them on the thigh in 1950 and his wife having him arrested for drunkeness in 1951 that folks will probably remember him best for. After a year of staying sober, in an attempt to get the role of Jim Bowie in John Wayne's Alamo, he lost that role to Richard Widmark. He died a the age of 58.

Stanley Clements career spanned 1941-1978. He appeared in Fort Yuma and several t.v. westerns, like The Lone Ranger, Tales Of Wells Fargo, The Virginian, Cimarron Strip, Iron Horse and Gunsmoke. His last appearance was in the made for t.v. comedy western, Hot Lead And Cold Feet in 1978.
