Rough Riders
24 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this old series, and got a chuckle out of the comment of the backwards guns, many of the old time western stars wore their guns backwards. They sometimes crossed their arms to draw. I wish, this series would show up on cable sometime. Being from Texas my favorite character was Lt Kirby,loved his blonde hair, and smart Aleck persona. I remember Jan Merlin from Tom Corbett Space Cadet too, I've followed his career over the years, IMO, he is one of the best character actors around, and he seemed to really enjoy playing the wise guy or the bad guy. Cole Younger, Gunfighter, was another one of my favorites! I've noticed his name pop up on Amazon, seems he has turned to writing.
