    @melollylolly It is no longer politically correct to play cowboys and indians, unless of course, the cowboys are finding their feminine side, the cowgirls are tough wagon masters and the indians are successful casino operators…

    Will they ever make another western TV series? I doubt it. And if they did it would be so ‘politically correct’ that it would be a waste of time watching. Sure it was pure escapism, but sometimes people need that. Reality can be so boring sometimes. Maybe there IS some ‘young Spielberg’ just itching to get a chance at making an old style western TV series. I can but hope.

    Well done and if we had shows like this still on the television today we might see a different young adult and adults. Songs that made you walk away proud to be a human and hold your head high with pride in the men and women that tamed a continent… any continent… The knights of TIME!!! Thank you for this!

    What I wouldn’t give for just one episode of that.

    Eric drowned while making a movie.

  20. emt49 says:

    No, it’s Frankie

  21. Mavarla says:

    Frankie Laine sang the original version of the “Rawhide” theme song, but please, correct me if I’m wrong: Isn’t this Clint Eastwood, himself, singing in your clip? Sure sounds like him, but, maybe, my ears have just gotten rusty! :-D Great clip, by the way!

    Thank you for posting!
    And of course I enjoyed it!
    Some of it brought a hint of dampness to my eyes as I remembered things past.
    Things seemed so much simpler then.
