Great series RIP Johnny, say hi to Chuck for us.,miss him as well.
Have many fond memories of watching Rifleman as a youngster. A Father-Son storyline that resonated with what can be and what is hoped to be. Johnny Crawford brought the “son” role to life.
My thanks for sharing your talent with us, and my prayers for you and your family.
Always take any opportunity to watch Rifleman, a great show and cast .75 is not quite long enough but he was obviously not doing well .
