WRLEM TV: Tales of Wells Fargo
Recently we were watching "Time Tunnel" on Hulu and they had a baby Robert Duvall playing a heavy. He was in his twenties at the time. It is always fun to watch an old episodic TV show and some famous actor has a bit part when he is just starting out.
Anyway there was a character actor in one of the episodes of Time Tunnel that we couldn't place and I looked him up on IMBD. This guy named Harry Lauter played a bad guy on just about everyone of my favorite shows from when I was a kid. Gunsmoke. Bonanza The Big Valley. The Virginan. Ironside. Mannix. Cannon. Gomer Pyle. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Rawhide. Ozzie and Harriet. Peter Gunn. Have Gun Will Travel. Just about everything I ever enjoyed watching.
One of my new things to do is catch these old shows on Youtube. Most of them are available because I guess the studios don't care anymore. So as I was reviewing his IMBD I noticed that he appeared on an old favorite. "Tales of Wells Fargo." When I looked it up on Youtube there were entire seasons. This is the first episode of the very popular series. A famous TV cowboy has a bit part. I am sure you know who he is. This was in between times of playing for the Dodgers and the Boston Celtics. He was one busy bastard.
Anyhoo. Enjoy Western fans!
I know Ed will get a kick out of it.
