Can you guess whose show these Western stars are in?

These actors appeared in other Westerns before and after starring in their own!

The wide variety of Westerns on TV in the 1950s and '60s meant that most classic TV actors appeared in at least one episode of any given Old West series. It was almost harder not to get cast in one eventually!

Many actors who went on to lead their own Westerns guest starred as cowboys in other shows first. Here are ten pairs of classic TV actors from famous Westerns. Can you guess whose show each image is from?

  1. Is this Chuck Connors in Gunsmoke or James Arness in The Rifleman?
  2. Is this Johnny Crawford in Have Gun - Will Travel or Richard Boone in The Rifleman?
  3. Is this James Garner in Rawhide or Clint Eastwood in Maverick?
  4. Is this Peter Breck in Bonanza or Pernell Roberts in The Big Valley?
  5. Is this Dale Robertson in The Rifleman or Chuck Connors in Tales of Well Fargo?
  6. Is this Robert Culp in Wanted Dead or Alive or Steve McQueen in Trackdown?
  7. Is this Ken Curtis in Have Gun - Will Travel or Richard Boone in Gunsmoke?
  8. Is this John McIntire in The Big Valley or Barbara Stanwyck in Wagon Train?
  9. Is this Denny Miller in The Rifleman or Johnny Crawford in Wagon Train?
  10. Is this Clint Walker in Maverick or James Garner in Cheyenne?

Can you guess whose show these Western stars are in?
