Friday Night Puzzle Blogging: Old Western Edition

Sarah's picture

I know that's James Garner, third from the right, but who are the rest of these TV Western stars (and was this a still from a TV show or a movie)? Is that Gene Barry standing beside Garner to the left? Who *are* those mustachioed men at the right?

Eat your hearts out, Depp and Marsters.
UPDATE: See additional (better) photos below, and my thanks to dblhelix.

Warner Brothers' back lot, by the way, doesn't look a DAMN thing like the South Texas brush country.

And I've been to Houston. It doesn't look anything like this, and it didn't 110 years ago, either:

But back in the day, they made good music and entertaining credits, even for shows that didn't last (Wildside and Outlaws! come to mind).

Sugarfoot, I'm sad to say, was before my time. I remember a different "other" on Maverick besides Garner (and didn't like either of 'em as well). Never saw Bronco or Colt 45 or Lawman, even in reruns, but that's quite a lineup. THANK YOU, dblhelix!!!

PS - Black and white or not, we could do worse than have some of these old shows replayed instead of "Survivor" and its ilk!

Show folks what it means to grow up and behave responsibly.
