Best Bartender?

Sweeney would like to welcome you to his place. Bar room chatter goes here, but only virtual drinks.

Best Bartender?

Post by Deneen » Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:10 pm

Who do you think was the best Bartender?

Sweeney - "The Rifleman"

Sam Noonan - "GunSmoke"

I'm sure Sweeney probably had some nice qualities. :thinking:

I think Sam was more manly. He always had Miss Kitty's back and would stand up to an outlaw.

Ya' know Deneen, I have asked myself the same question a couple of times.

I really liked both of them, but I would have to say Sam. He was a true friend and also watched out for Miss Kitty. An excellent bartender and he also had a shotgun behind the bar and wasn't afraid to use it. :sillycowboy:

It's always a pleasure to see Glenn Strange. Remember him in The Lone Ranger as Butch Cavendish?

Glenn Strange played the monster in three Universal films: “House of Frankenstein” in 1944, “House of Dracula” in 1945, and with Abbott and Costello in “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” in 1948.

Here is a nice article on Glenn Strange you might enjoy.....

Good question and I agree with both of you. Sam the bartender. Glenn was also on Rifleman 6 times as stagecoach driver. Glenn was an imposing 6' 6" tall. big burley man

Thanks for posting that article - CowGirl!

Glenn Strange and Lon Chaney Jr. looked enough alike to be brothers. :)

Well - I'll be darn! I didn't notice that. :lol:

It seems like every one in Hollywood was in westerns in the 50's and 60's.
I've been surprised at some of the stars I've seen on westerns. :msn-oh:

Deneen: I've been surprised at some of the stars I've seen on westerns.
Me too! I think the two that surprised me the most years ago was Batman and Hons Solo as a cowboy. :laughingcowboy:

Some of the people that surprised me in Westerns was.....High Beaumont (Beavers Dad) and David Hartman (Good Morning America) David was on one season of The Virginian and a really good cowboy, rode well and he's also tall.

Hugh Beaumont rode well and did good also. I can only see him as Beavers nerd Dad. he was in a Virginian episode.

I think Buddy Hackett wanted to be a cowboy but he was still funny at it.

I saw Frances Bavier (Aunt Bea) in a couple of TV westerns and a few western movies. she was not convincing, she was better as Aunt Bea in an apron

then there is Hope Summers. saw her in several TV westerns and western movies. she is better in westerns than she was on Andy Griffith show. I think certain actors just have a certain look and persona for a role. she was terrific as Hattie

and there are FEW people who just seem born to be a cowboy and have the TOTAL package. Chuck Connors
