WKRLEM: Another old school western where almost everyone grew up to be more famous than the Star of the show.
Here is an old school western called "Tate; Bounty Hunter." See if you can recognize the big names who play bit parts in this shoot em up that was a summer replacement for the old Perry Como show. I mean guess them before the final credits. One is really obvious but a couple of others not so much.
This is an interesting dark series. This was just about the first show with a handicapped hero who had a dead arm from the Civil War. The atmosphere just seemed very interesting to me. Sort of a film noir western if that makes any sense. It has a elderly Irish poet with a ripe young wife. Two bounty hunters. Shoot outs. And a really great coat that the hero has that I wish I owned today. I had one like it in the 1970's. Man I miss that coat.
Do you remember this one ed?
