The Rebel / The Yank

Not sure how many of you have watched The Rebel starring Nick Adams. Very good series.

I was going through my DVD's and in The Rebel there is a special feature called The Yank with James Drury.

I never heard of this before so I thought I'd check it out.

I found this great interview with James Drury about making a pilot for a 30-minute Western series called The Yank. This was before The Virginian.

Andrew Fenady was the producer of both The Rebel & The Yank.

It was a spinoff of a very popular series The Rebel.

Drury: It was a heartbreak to me when it didn’t sell, but if it had sold, I probably wouldn't have had the opportunity to play The Virginian. So, everything worked out for the best.

There is a great interview with James Drury - Classic Film & TV Cafe

Anybody see this?
