 #3 is Colt .45 with Wade Preston

#4 is Tales Of Wells Fargo with Dale Robertson 

#9 is Trackdown with Robert Culp

#10 is The Tall Man with Barry Sullivan and Clu Gulager 

 

By the way, in Gunsmoke, James Arness was not a sheriff.  He was a U.S. marshal.

In the late 50s--early 60s westerns were everywhere.

Saddle up and see how many you can remember.

When you identify the show also name the principal performer(s) in the series.

1) This Wild West private detective receives his clients in a fancy San Francisco saloon where they have located him by acquiring one of his printed business cards.

2) This western's hero was an ex- Confederate officer, who worked undercover as a government agent. He spent his time gambling on a riverboat. And he brought in the bad guys with the help of a fancy gun and a Native American sidekick.

3) Here is another undercover government agent in the Wild West. He poses as a salesman for the "Peacemaker"revolver.

4) In this western the hero was an agent troubleshooter for a private  company and was known as the "left-handed gun".

5) In this western  a new sheriff in town teaches his young deputy the ropes, while romancing the blonde salon owner who also doubles as the schoolmarm.

6) A sheriff in a Kansas town deals with keeping the peace with the help of a local sidekick, while romancing the red headed saloon keeper and listening to the wisdom of the local doctor.

7) In this western another ex-Confederate roams the Wild West with his father's sawed- off double barrel shotgun and a revolver.

😎 Eight) This hour long western featured a hero who was the mayor of a town in  Oklahoma territory. The local blacksmith also served as the town's deputy.

9) And this Western features yet another ex- Confederate officer who is now a Texas Ranger,  and who also doubles as the sheriff of a Texas town.

10) This western is a fictionalized account of two real Wild West legends, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

 Happy Trails😄😄😄

repeating your clues, they are on the previous page, a pain to go back and forth to read them.

#5 is Lawman with John Russell as Marshal Dan Troop, Peter Brown as Deputy Johnny McKay, and Peggy Castle as Lilly Merrill.

The difference between Marshal and Sheriff is that Sheriff is a local lawman with jurisdictional boundaries of the town or the county.  It is usually an elected position.  U.S. Marshal is an appointed position with jurisdiction anywhere in the United States.  That is why Marshal Dillon on Gunsmoke can go many miles with Chester or Festus to hunt down fugitives.

Well, that was on two different pages so it was kind of hard to keep up.

But we had good participation on this one from  Lav, Peebs and Miles.

And we're not surprised that Miles, our King of the Wild Wild West, won this quiz with  6/10 correct answers.

Miles, You won that shoot out, so you're up.....

Hi Lav, I'm not adding anything that you also posted. 

I added #7. the Cisco Kidd replacing Roy Rogers.  Originally I had Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and Wagon Train posted.   

No big deal.  I'll cross out the ones we both answered. 🙂

Wow, you folks are sailing through these!   I was going to post even more, but I got a bit tired and ended where I did.  Keeping score, I don't see anyone identifying  #6, #10, and #11 yet.  In order to alleviate confusion, #4 is Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and Pat Brady, along with Pat's jeep, NELLYBELLE, in The Roy Rogers Show.   Dickie Jones, then billed as Dick Jones, was Buffalo Bill Jr. in #1.  That was the outfit that he always wore.  Dick Jones appears again with The Range Rider himself, Jack Mahoney, in #3.   He was later billed as Jock Mahoney. 

Here are some clues:

#6 starred one of the greatest movie singing cowboys of all time.  The fellow with the whiskers later was a regular on Green Acres.

#10  This fellow portrayed a legendary scout.  The star had a connection to The Perry Mason Show.

#11.  Another all time cowboy movie star.  He usually wore black and rode a white horse named Topper.  He portrayed the same character in countless movies before bringing the role to television.

Both Peebs and I identified 4 correctly but Peebs post showed up first.

I understand.  Peebs gets the credit.

By the way, I meant to post this photo, but I forgot it.  Can you identify the actors and the show?

The show was sponsored by Kellogg's Sugar Pops.  Sugar Pops Are Tops!

You are correct, Lavender.   I discovered that late last night and I intended to post about it this morning.    Thanks to Chaya, Peebs, Princess, and Lavender for playing.  As a group you got them all correct, and you know that there were lots of other westerns on TV in those years.  Maybe we'll get to some of them in the future.  This thread is all about reminiscing and I had fun just looking for the photos.  I hope you all had fun identifying them.  

Lavender got the most, so she gets the next turn.
