Everybody knows Chuck Connors for his role as Lucas McCain in "The Rifleman." He also did so many other things. He was good at no matter what he did! Besides The Rifleman what else have you enjoyed seeing Chuck in?

Yep - I saw that episode too. Quite a few references from the Rifleman are mentioned through out the "Branded" series.
I especially like the one with "Lucas" carved in a tree and the twirling of the saber and the rifle.

And Yes - The close-ups of Chuck's face in color is almost too much to handle. So darn handsome! :giggle:

Deneen I SO agree with you. I did not see the episode yet with Lucas carved on the tree...but it would match Closer than a Brother when Lucas says to Micah....

What do you want from a man?" "Ride around the territory curvin' your name on trees?

When Johnny did the Little House on the Prairie episode there was several references to his going trapping in North Fork. just loved it.

and I notice Chuck's hair seems more curly in some Branded and also some of the western movies he did, especially when it is longer.... I wonder if it had a natural wave or not? anyway....they ' broke the mold for handsome' after him!!

That's exactly what I thought!
Maybe Lucas rode around the territory carving his own name on trees. :laughing:

Chuck's hair seemed to be straight in real life. It looked like Chuck had a perm in "Outlaw's Inheritance". Chuck's hair in the second season of "Branded" was gorgeous!

Chuck was gorgeous....I don't think i've ever seen a bad picture of him. he had a sister, I wonder if she was beautiful as well. read somewhere Chuck's Dad was only about 5"8"
