    Just shows many actors in roles that require guns are not trained or knowledgeable gun handlers...they just read what the script says. There have been actors who knew their stuff. In the movie "The Professionals", Lee Marvin maintained the machine guns himself as he was a combat Marine in WWII and knew what he was doing. Sammy Davis Jr. was an excellent gun handler and spin artist with a SAA. Jimmy Stewart knew his stuff. I'm sure there were others as well but probably in a minority of actors.

    The channel H&I (Heroes & Icons) carries shows like Maverick, Cheyenne, Wanted Dead or Alive. Have Gun Will Travel and Rawhide daily during the week.

    I did not appreciate the concept of 'A knight without armor in a savage land' when I was a kid. The program is on Saturday mornings here, and now it is apparent that the whole thing was a couple of light years ahead of its' time. I did not 'get' the true intent of his mission until much later. It is one of the better cornball westerns of the golden age of television. I won't miss it if at all possible.
    Seems to me, someone posted, in one of the Browning High Power threads, images of Richard Boone's personal M-35 with a hand written letter from Claire Boone, his widow, attesting to its' authenticity.

    Stembridge Rentals used to own the 'Paladin' rig and Colt - the grips were wood.

    All any of it had to do, was look good at a distance - camera lenses weren't as developed as today's, and seriously - no one cared...

    'Paladin' was the first western using the 'morality tale' as a concept - borrowing a page from 'The Twilight Zone'.

    Locally, we get Cheyenne qet 4 AM, Maverick at 5, Wanted, Dead or Alive at 6, Paladin at 7, and Rawhide at 8 AM. On the H&I channel. Johnny Western, who was in one episode and wrote the theme song became a good friend of Richard Boone. He said Boone could shoot, but that he was not a fast draw. Filming the episode Western outdrew Boone, but the editors worked their magic and had Boone outdraw Western and shot Johnny dead. The episode: The Return of Dr. Thackeray. Featured a young & beautiful June Lockhart.

    When I was a kid, I thought that Paladin's first name was 'Wire' because of his business card. I don't know or can't remember if he did have a first name.
