1958: “The Rifleman” made its US TV debut

Chuck Connors used to play baseball.    In fact, he played with the Dodgers and Cubs in 1949-51.   Connors, who was 6’5 and 190 lbs, never hit much:  .238 in 67 major league games!

On this day in 1958, “The Rifleman” made its debut on US TV and an entire generation of boys like me grew up watching it.   Even now, I catch episodes on Saturday mornings over at AMC.

The show’s message was simple:  right and wrong, a widowed father who was a good role model and a cast of characters that we enjoyed every week.
