Top Notch Western
16 January 2003 | by samson3See all my reviews

I used to watch this series when I was a small child.The show starred Rory Calhoun as Bill Longley, The Texan. Although it only stayed on for two years, I loved this show because I thought Calhoun was really cool! I remember that he was always level-headed and that he never looked for trouble, although sometimes it found him.Also,the show had really good theme music.At the end of the show,they would show a picture of Texas while running the credits.Another thing was that Longley was really fast with a gun; nobody could outdraw him. Maybe you can catch this show on cable,it is really good!
