"Unsung Heroes" - The Stunt people 
They "take a licking but keep on ticking" just like Timex!

All of these stuntmen appeared on The Rifleman. 
I don't know if some of them did stunts on the show or not, so I am giving them credit as credit do and for being a 'stuntman!'

Tragedy Among the Stars
Years ago when I was doing the piddlin' stuff..... for the episode guide list I couldn't help but notice some of the tragedy some of these stars endured.  We sometimes see these stars as having such a glamorous life, but in fact other then material things, their life is much like ours. 
I hope you enjoy this section, it was created with the highest regards to these great actors/actress.
Gone but not forgotten!
