I wonder if Clint would've have used him in his films like Paul Brinegar popping up in High Plains Drifter and Sheb Wooley in Josey Wales?

I've been trying to do a bit of research on Mr Fleming but without much success... he seems to be
A bit of a man of mystery. An unhappy childhood, drifter, nasty accident to his face that required plastic surgery.Not married, no kids. There's some question as to why he left Rawhide so abruptly.
The circumstances surrounding his death are fairly well documented but what happened to his remains is a little murky.
He was apparently due to be married upon his return from filming in Peru which makes his passing that much sadder.
Seven years is a long time to work closely with someone.. But I guess if he and Eastwood had been at all close we'd have
Heard about it.

Rawhide runs every day here and I'm gonna make an effort to watch more of them. Some quite unexpectedly quirky little
Stories make it interesting along with some pretty cool co stars.

I wonder what he woulda make of Eastwoods later success. I find him quite watchable in Rawhide.
I was just curious, considering how many years they worked together how well they got on..

I get the feeling, from other sources as well, that they weren't especially close, though Clint certainly got a shock when he heard about Fleming's accidental death on a film shoot in Peru, in 1966.

Bit of a strange one.

Some of them seem to have an almost Twighlight Zone feel to them.

Bit sad to find out that Clint is possibly the only surviving cast member (if the actor who played Hey Soos is no longer

Just saw season 7 episode called "Canliss" directed by Jack Arnold and starring Dean Martin (as a famous gunfighter trying to retire after one last mission) & Ramon Novarro.One of the best in the series.Could easily stand as a B movie.Unfortunately no Clint.

I've been watching quite a few episodes recently and finding them strangely quite addictive.
This week we've had murder steers and music boxes...  :)

Another weird one today. "Incident of the Garden of Eden" featuring lots of London folk (some abysmal accents)
Gregory Wallcott and Clint having fun dressing for dinner...  ;D

Anyone know why Charles Gray left the series? He replaced Sheb Wooley and in the first few episodes he was quite prominent in the storyline and then started disappearing completely from some episodes. Towards the end of season 5 he wasn't in any episodes at all and watching the first few episodes of season 6, he is no longer in the cast.

Season Six episode, Incident at Paradise has a young Beau Bridges in the guest cast. I thought it was Jeff Bridges when he first came on screen but when I saw him without his cowboy hat on you could tell it was Beau.

A couple of good Season 6 episodes:

Incident at Confidence Creek guest stars Dick York and Barbara Eden as a couple of confidence tricksters who steal the ownership papers of the herd.

Incident Of The Death Dancer guest stars Forrest Tucker who is hunting an African Lion in the American west!!

Never actually saw an episode of Rawhide until this week when the first season showed up at the library, and only knew the song from the Blues Brothers...but sure up to speed now. It's really remarkable to watch Clint evolve over the course of 21 episodes, from a fairly standard 50's-style-acting portrayal of a wide-eyed kid to a squinting, less is more onscreen presence delivering glib lines, and settling into his skin to draw out the traits that were his hallmark. It was cool to see elements as early as the second episode of him wanting to settle things with a gun (although Gil does most of the showdown justice) and that in one of the final episodes he uses the "fanning" style of shot to gun someone down, slapping the hammer with his hand ala the man with no name...

A scene where I thought he'd transitioned from what he was to what he'd become was in Incident of a Burst of Evil after he returns from bringing food to the women at the commanchero camp, where he's riding along with a steely yet casual look, and Gil rides up and says "I didn't know you were back," to which Rowdy replies "I wasn't doin' no hollerin' about it..."

A flash of things to come...

The start of Season 7 has new opening credits with metal sculptured heads of Gil, Rowdy and Wishbone and more... :-X

I wonder if they still exist? Of the three though, Paul Brinegar is the only good likeness.

In The Enormous Fist(Season 7 Episode 2), Lee Van Cleef didn't even last 5 mins into the episode before he gets killed. :o

He turns up in the very next episode though and lasts a little longer. He is playing a different character of course from the previous episode. :D

Just watched Incident of the Backshooter(Season 7, Episode 5). Clint episode from go to woe. It's a must see. Good plot, great acting and a few funny moments, including a sign on a side of a building that said UNDERTAKER in large letters and AND DENTIST underneath in smaller letters. ;D

Can someone confirm that a car passes along the bottom of the screen at about 5min 10sec into this episode? It's just a sunrise scene over what looks like Monument Valley, at the bottom of the screen, a trail of dust can be seen moving along at great speed.

Yup there is certainly something going hell for leather along the bottom of the screen. Road Runner perhaps?  ;D   It seems too fast for a car but you never know. I suppose that is dust flying up behind it.

BTW if anyone else wants to look at it you'll find the episode on disc 2 season 7.

Just watched the season 7 episode, Canliss. This guest starred Dean Martin. I read somewhere months ago that he was in an episode and had been looking forward to seeing it but it was a major disappointment. It's the Dino show. No Clint and only a couple of scenes with Gil and Wishbone. Dean Martin fans might enjoy it but I was hoping for a few scenes of him and Clint together. :(

Yes, I have often said the same thing.  Rawhide was like a cross between Twilight Zone and Star Trek.  Every week, they are in a new place that offers up it's own mystery and challenges, and those challenges often have a Twilight Zone feel, especially in the earlier seasons.  I'm currently on season 6 and not watching as regularly.  For me, the plots just don't keep me glued to the screen as much as the earlier seasons, but that may change again.  I've read that the quality of later seasons varied.

I'm finally onto the final season of Rawhide and I can see why the show got axed mid way through this year. The last couple of seasons haven't had me interested. Unfortunately the series has become stale. In fact, the last few episodes, the only thing I've been looking for are the costars.   :(
