Be our guest: The Rifleman meets Beauty and the Beast

It has been almost 60 years since The Rifleman first visited our living rooms. Grab your boots and saddle and get ready to ride as we revisit the McCain's! Lucas, Mark & Micah gather here to talk about The Rifleman. What better place to discuss The Rifleman then his own front porch.

Be our guest: The Rifleman meets Beauty and the Beast

Random rambler:54979 wrote:One of my favorite movies is the 1991 version of beauty and the beast.  I am chomping at the bit to see the live action film. Wouldn't Lucas be awesome,in a dual role as both Gaston and the beast? How about Micah as cogsworth and Maurice? Since according to Lucas Mark is such a stud and sang the French song in the 1960s, he can be lumiere with fellow household furniture Sally walker and gigi perreau.  They could double as the town girls infatuated with Gaston.   Sweeney would be the bartender-type casting. Millie would be belle.  Mr. Griswold would be the asylum  keeper.  Speed and swifty would be lefou , Gaston's henchmen. Hattie would be the enchantress who turns Prince Lucas into a beast with a bovine appearance for making those pompous cracks about women voting being like a cow racing a stallion.  Ms. Bertie would be Mrs Potts.   Both Lucas and Maurice have a strong bond with their only children. However, Lucas is a community leader, but Maurice is considered the town eccentric.
