I also have fond memories of "Montana Mike." I saw it on an old RCA TV with a round 12-inch screen. I had scarlet fever at the time, and the the TV was only 10 feet away, but sometimes the picture looked 10 yards or 10 miles away.
I, too, watched it every night on Million Dollar Movie. I thought I was going to die; and, if so, I wanted a cowboy angel like Robert Cummings to take me to heaven.
