It was a good time to be an up-and-coming actor in the late 1950s. Studios needed a steady stream of men to populate its many TV Westerns. At one point, there was a couple dozen or more cowboys shows on the networks, each one requiring good guys, bad guys, local folk, bartenders, cowhands and whatnot. If you were a working actor, you were probably on a Western in 1958.

Of course, The Rifleman was one of the greatest of these classic small-screen Westerns. And it had its fair share of stars, both established and rising.
