The Virginian - anyone remember that tv series! It ran from 1962-1971 and was all about a ranch called Shiloh, its owners and the cowboys who worked there. The Virginian was one of the main characters, he was a bit mysterious and we never got to know his real name or much about his background. He was played by the actor James Drury. My favourite was Trampas, played by Doug McClure - I had photos of him on my bedroom wall. Remember the theme music?
After that came The High Chaparral (1967-1971). Ranch owner was John Cannon played by Leif Erickson and my favourite - his son Blue Boy, played by Mark Slade who had the most gorgeous blue eyes! Yup, had pics of him on wall too! Another favourite character was Manolito played by Henry Darrow - he was a bit of a rascal.
I also loved Alias Smith & Jones starring Pete Duel and Ben Murphy - "two latter day Robin Hoods"! I remember taping the titles and playing it over and over, How sad is that?!?!? But the ultimate cowboys were, of course Butch and Sundance - swoon!
All these photos come from my Fab 208 Annual from 1971.
