George Lindsey (Goober) was in several westerns
Martin Milner (Route 66) was on The Virginian don't think he was a very good cowboy
Frances Bavier (Aunt Bea) was in several western TV and movies

OK ... now lets turn this around and list some of the big box office stars who were huge in the movies and later in life did western TV

Big Valley Barbara Stanwyck
Anne Baxter

The Virginian Bette Davis
Gunsmoke Bette Davis

Bonanza Zsa Zsa Gabor

I always wondered it they enjoyed it, needed the money or did they feel this was below them, or did they just like to act and keep their faces before the public? thoughts??

Peter Lorre - "Wagon Train"

Lon Chaney - "The Rifleman"

Walter Brennan - "The Real McCoys"

Ronald Reagan - "Wagon Train" - President of the United States :msn-oh:

I think they all enjoyed acting for one or all the reasons you mentioned.

Richard Mulligan - Empty Nest as Dr. Harry Weston. He also played Dr. Harry Weston in two other TV series - Nurses and The Golden Girls.

I really liked this guy. Although he was know for mostly comedy, he did do several westerns. I'm not sure if you have ever seen him in Gunsmoke /Jud Pryor, very good episode.

Several other Rifleman alumni was also in this - Norman Alden, Jimmy Noel and Max Wagner.

"He exited the stage quietly and was happy to be able to do so." - David Fisher, Mulligan's assistant, after Mulligan's death.

If I remember correctly, didn't richard Mulligan play General Custer in little big man? Considered quite racy for the time, my favorite is when he would make himself invisible as Burt Campbell in Soap. Remember the theme music?

Yes he did Dana.

Arthur Hiller's 1984 comedy-drama Teachers features Richard Mulligan partially reprising his Custer role as Herbert Gower, an outpatient from a mental institution who is accidentally put in charge of a U.S. history class and teaches his pupils while impersonating historical figures such as Custer, but also Abe Lincoln and Ben Franklin, amongst others.

I do remember him as Burt Campbell. Gotta love this guy.
