"I loved that rifle," Crawford said by phone from his Los Angeles home. "Of all the rifles, it was the most beautiful. Nice balance; easy to carry. I used to play with it. I'd spin it, but sideways because I wasn't tall like Chuck, who'd swing it under his arm."

On camera, the gun was off limits to Crawford, an original "Mickey Mouse Club" Mouseketeer who was 12 when filming began.
