Peter Whitney appeared in nine episodes of The Rifleman ― Eddie's Daughter as Tracey Blanch, he's the big dude who came looking for Lil ― Mail Order Groom as John Jupiter, he was the Mail Order Groom, the one that Jess Profit (John Anderson) kept picking on ― Heller as Andrew Bechtol, the mean stepfather ― Strange Town as Ott Droshek, he ran the Strange Town ― The Queue as Vince Fergus, again he was the bully, the instigator who picked on Wang Chi ― Long Gun From Tucson as John Holliver, he was the cowboy who came back for revenge ― Lou Mallory as Neb Jackman, the Pa of the Jackman clan ― Gun Shy as Vantine, he was the man who was holding Lou hostage ― Which Way'd They Go? as Neb Jackman, the Pa of the Jackman clan.

For me....Mail Order Groom. he carried the episode. great actor. usually was the bad guy, would have liked to have seen him as the good guy once. did he ever play a lead role or the good guy??

I'm not sure wildwest but he did have a rare romantic lead in the 1946 horror film The Brute Man (the title character was played by Rondo Hatton).

Anybody remember him in The Rough Riders?

"Mail Order Groom" for me too.
It was nice to see Peter playing a nice guy for a change. :happycowboy:

I would have to say Heller! Great performance when Bechtol begs for his life. A job well done!

I guess I would flip a coin..
Vantine.... or Jupiter....
Two very different characters... played equally as well.
One was a very patient, big, lug of a guy, the other, a bad a$$ good for nuthin' killer.
(and I always thought he looked like he had slimmed down some
from earlier roles, as Vantine)

I have a page of bloopers from Lou Mallory and Which way'd they go? and you can plainly see that they had stuffed his belly. There is also a picture from Gun Shy when he played Vantine.
