TV Western Spin-off #1 Dirty Sally/video & photos

One good spin-off deserves another. I will post a TV Western show that was a spin-off of another TV Western show. Let's see how well you know where some of these westerns came from. After we guess the answers, I will put some video in about that show for everyone to enjoy. Okay, lets just see how good you are?

TV Western Spin-off #1 Dirty Sally/video & photos

This TV Western was not anything like your traditional violent westerns.  It was a spin off from Gunsmoke, which was still on the air when this series began. It was a western mixed with drama and humor. This series was very short-lived and produced a total of 13 episodes.

The star of this western was nominated for a prime-time Emmy as "Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series".

Can you name this TV Western and the two main stars of this series?

Thanks for sharing Margie...

Interesting note: Actor Denver Pyle (who would later play Uncle Jesse in The Dukes of Hazzard),
was one of the writers for this show as well as doing directorial duties.  But of course we also know him from appearing on The Rifleman in five episodes.

The only spin-off from Gunsmoke was Dirty Sally, based on the character Sally Fergus from the two part Gunsmoke episode "Pike."  

Can you believe 20 years of Gunsmoke and this was the only spin-off?

Hope you guys enjoyed this, I just love these classic TV westerns!

Also Denver Pyle was on The Andy Griffith Show as Mr. Darlin.  Remember the hillbillies from the hills... Charlene and the boys. :smile:
He was on there from time to time... not much but he did appear on there.

I liked Jeanette Nolan's husband (real life) also. He was a great western star.

Not that I recall.  Do you know who her husband was? I saw them together one time on a western but I cannot remember which western it was.

I liked her husband in Wagon Train.
