    By the way, my favorite episode with John Anderson is the one where he plays Johnny Beaumont, who comes to North Fork to seek revenge 15 years after Lucas sent him to prison as a deputy in Kansas territory.

    John Anderson, who plays the mountain man in this episode, made the most number of guest appearances on the show, I believe.

    Six foot six inch Chuck Connors was a pro baseball player turned actor. A good move on his part. He was one of the most intimidating presences on all of television, and his acting skills had as much to do with it as did his SIZE! I remember as a kid being so incredibly impressed with that rifle and his ability to handle it as if it were an actual extension of his arm! I never could figure out why men were willing to take him on. That was back before I understood the concept of paid actors.

    0:00-0:21.; The most epic intro in TV history!
