Ho! Ho! Ho!
I used to get that package and I LOVED the B&W GUNSMOKEs that I NEVER saw! We have the RETRO network here and they were showing THE VIRGINIAN twice on Sunday mornings a couple of months ago! I FINALLY got to see some of the Charles Bickford episodes! For some reason, they never seemed to turn up no matter how often THE VIRGINIAN was shown! Then they changed their schedule and now run LAREDO, WAGON TRAIN and THE RIFLEMAN! LAREDO is usually just a lot of cornball humor! But I vaguely remember seeing an episode on a Friday night at my Grandmother's when I could stay up late! I recall something about an old guy keeping one of the rangers hostage in a huge house! Then he fell to his death at the end! It seemed to be played pretty straight and I keep looking out for it but so far no luck! LAREDO had one of the best western theme songs and I believe part of it was used as background music on RAWHIDE!
