Joel McCrea made a whole bunch of great westerns. I’m hoping that South of St. Louis will be studio released soon. I just bought Border River with Yvonne DeCarlo and it was excellent. My father met Joel McCrea and Robert Conrad (Wild Wild West) at some kind of a show in the late 1960s. He said McCrea was one of the nicest down-to-earth guys he ever met. He also said Conrad was the biggest jerk and had a Napoleon complex. Of course my dad is 6’6″ – 260 lbs, and that probably didn’t help Conrad’s ego.
On another note – James Garner’s NICHOLS complete season 1 has just been released by Warner and it’s very good. The opening with the 1910 – 1915 motorcycles being driven next to horses is wonderful.
