TV western series, making cameo appearances). Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Who Are All These Other Guys?

Notable entry since it may be first in TV history to plug a number of the studio's other series into the story-line. It's done humorously, of course, again showing the possibilities opened up by the fresh tongue-in-cheek style. Cameos are from John Russell & Peter Brown (Lawman), Will Hutchins (Sugarfoot), Ty Hardin (Bronco), Clint Walker (Cheyenne), and straying from his non-Western preserve at 77 Sunset Strip, Edd (Kookie) Byrnes aping his hit single "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb". None of the first four came close to equaling Maverick's great success, and all five were produced by Warner Bros. In passing, note that both Russell and Byrnes keep a rather awkward silence during their cameos. I expect that was because their contract requirements demanded a much larger fee for speaking in addition to simply appearing.

Good episode, as reviewer Skoyles states, with exceptionally fine supporting cast. Note also in passing, how adroitly the thuggish Robert Wilke slips a Kelly punch thrown at his chin in a well-choreographed fight scene near the end. I hope there's a place in Hollywood heaven for unsung athletes like Wilke. One other point that sort of surfaces here. There was a danger, once the series took up humor and satire, that the results could cross the line into plain silliness. I don't think it happens here, but at times it comes close. Anyway, the entry may not be classic (no con-woman or elaborate con-job), but it's still a fun look at Warner's TV stable, circa 1960.
