Jesse Wayne - The Rifleman

Stuntman Jesse Wayne worked in just about every TV Western of the 1960's and doubled for such young stars as Johnny Crawford of "The Rifleman" and Kurt Russell in The Travels of Jamie McPheeters.

 Not sure who doubled for Johnny in the episode of 'Requiem at Mission Springs' but he is a possibility, especially after that bad tumble Mark took.
