Studio horses?

I was 8 when my family would not miss an episode. Seeing the tops of the set makes an old favorite look so fake.

Doesn't look enough room

to swing a cat, never mind ride a horse!


I can't think of a television actor I liked and admired more than James Garner. Other girls my age were in love with James Franciscus, or Richard Chamberlain or maybe Steve McQueen (in Wanted: Dead or Alive), or young Michael Landon in Bonanza. But I was crazy for James Garner. The Rockford Files is still at the top of my all time favorite TV show list. So sad to hear of his passing.

Shades of Bonanza

I never liked it when they filmed Western scenes indoors.
