Dear Mr. Crawford:

Your fans on this webpage have compiled some questions for you. If you ever happen by, and would take a few minutes to answer some or all of them, your fans would be very grateful.


 Would you please forward your answers to the c/o of The McCain Ranch!

 Thanks in advance, from all your fans!

(1) Do you still have a love of horses and do you ever ride for pleasure?
(2) Was there an episode of Rifleman you didn't like? Which one?

(7) What sort of memorabilia have you kept from The Rifleman?

(13)  Had you many out takes in "The Rifleman" - and do you have a special memory?

(15)  Of all the different things he has achieved, what makes him the most proud?
(16) One of our readers saw a picture of you once with a mustache. Have you ever tried to grow a beard?
(17) What was your most embarrassing moment, on or off the set?
(18) What did you learn from Chuck while playing Mark, did you follow through with them once you were grown up and on your own?
(19) Will you continue doing autograph shows so fans can meet you?
(20) Will the Johnny Crawford Orchestra ever tour so that more of us can listen to his music?
(21) Since you talk of holding onto your dreams, is there anything in life you wished you could have done, and didn't? 
(22) What is your favorite memory of Chuck Connors?
(23) What was it like working with Lee Van Cleef?
(24) What was it like working with Billy Hughes?
