Great Acting

markisddg:27694 wrote:Rifleman had some powerfully good scenes with real dramatic acting. Just saw Six Years and a Day again and that doctor, John Larch, gives a great performance as a drunk and also when he realizes his hands can save people again.

Some actors that appeared in a lot of episodes always gave a great performance like Dano and Anderson but name some one time actors/actresses who showed their full potential as actors in an episode.

How about Ma Boyle she was fine in that scene with Mark.
