Re: Spurs and the Great West

Most actors seem to practice the pause for effect in the middle of a sentence. "Howdy, gents, I'm here to take the...(pause)...stagecoach to Yuma." "Frankly, Seymour, you habits are driving me...(pause)...up the wall. Listen for it. You'll be surprised how often you hear it in shows both old and new.

After the Civil War, nomadic adventurer Cheyenne Bodie (played by Clint Walker) roamed the west looking for fights, women, and bad guys to beat up. His job ...

Unfortunately, his "cowboy" abilities leave a lot to be desired and earn him the nickname "Sugarfoot", which is one step lower than a "Tenderfoot". Will Hutchins played the title rol...

Re: Spurs and the Great West

When the pioneers crossed the treeless prairies, they needed something to burn for their cooking fires. They copied the Indians and used dried buffalo dung or "chips". I've tried it, and they burn good. Today the main use for buffalo chips is in throwing contests. The individual record of 186’ 7” wa...
