Stars in the Making!
pepe-46 from London, England
17 November 2006
This exciting episode of 'Cheyenne' brought together two future stars
in the making, namely James Garner and Michael Landon. Garner, in his
second outing in 'Cheyenne' once again plays a cavalry lieutenant as he
did in "Mountain Fortress" the first ever episode. Whilst on the
subject of cavalry lieutenants, it seems that during this period Garner
had a penchant for playing these officers in a number of movies around
this time. Fortunately for James, eighteen months after "Decision" was
aired he found himself embarking on the series that set him on the road
to being a world ranking star..."MAVERICK"!
Michael Landon meanwhile, looking a very young 20 year old, has a small
uncredited role as a soldier. There is a strong possibility that this
could have been his first role on screen, as this was aired in January
1956 and it appears that this was the year that his movie/TV career
started (Unless anyone knows differently)?
This episode itself, has Cheyenne, now a temporary government scout for
the cavalry, leading them on an 8 day trek to Fort McKay with marauding
Arapahos on the loose!
Veteren actor Richard Denning completes this star studded outing as
Capt. Quinlan and really pulls the movie together.
An enjoyable cavalry vs Indians western.
By the way whatever happened to Smitty?
