Those cowboy shoot 'em ups are great!
Makes me feel like I am a boy again with my cap guns!
American westerns at their best!
An innocent age, that is what it was, just a great time to grow up.
Dick Powell's Zane Gray Theater ran from 1956 till 1961 on CBS.
A simple life of good guys and bad guys.
White hats and black hats so we could know from a distance,
just who was who.
A time, gone by, long ago......
that I hope to see again. They just do not make them the way they used to!
Gotta love them.... Cowboy Shows.
