Addendum to that. I just found that it was "Tales of the Texas Rangers" My older brother always insisted on being Clay Morgan, the number one guy. I was relegated to be Jace Pearson. I recall that the rangers would advance resolutely down a street, with lesser rangers progressively turning off. Jace would be the last to turn off, leaving only the steely eyed Clay to face the camera. And my brother's Colt was constructed of some metal castings (I think a Walker), leaving me with some much smaller and less impressive revolver. Only later did we acquire equal Lugers, that held rolls of caps. Cheers Hopalong again. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of G Hopkinson Sent: Thursday, 15 March 2007 22:21 To: 'Leica Users Group' Subject: RE: [Leica] re: [IMG] gun portrait Sonny, that's a precious memory. What was it Patton said about pearl handled revolvers? I like the buzzcut on the boys in the background. Maybe future Marines? I think that I grew up as the sidekick in "Texas Rangers" I seem to remember the Cisco kid as well. Then there was a period as Rowdy Yates in Rawhide. Who knew he'd grow up to be mayor of someplace?
