By day,a Western star. By night, a family man. By day or night the funniest new personality on TV.
Sam Garret plays brave TV cowboy star Jed Clayton but the problem is he's uncoordinated, scared of horses and has allergies. Wife Ruth, son Bobby, and neighbors the Gilmans like Sam as the average guy he is.

Victor French, 27 August 2008
Author: afetrmath2 from United States

Those were the days of "My Living Doll" and "Valentine's Day", featuring actors I had never seen before.

I have been in love with Mariette Harley ever since.

I thought William Mulligan was a riot. Years later, he became better known as Bert on "Soap".

I still remember the supporting actor, Victor French, playing the neighbor. A few years later, I was surprised and amused to see French described as a "veteran heavy", and yet had to admit that he was chillingly convincing as a villain. Even later, you may recall him as Michael Landon's friend on "Highway to Heaven."
