Re: Spurs and the Great West

The Rebel ran from 1959-61 with Nick Adams as a former Confederate soldier who roamed the west saving people from Indians and bad guys. His signature weapon was a sawed off shotgun.

Re: Spurs and the Great West

Chuck Connors followed The Rifleman with Branded in 1965-66. He played a U.S. Army officer who was drummed out for alleged cowardice, and who then roamed the west trying to prove his innocence. His signature weapon was his broken officer's sword which he turned into a really big knife.

Re: Spurs and the Great West
