Thing is we didn't get this till after Bonanza was shown and on a high...ML made two appearances in 'Wanted', l think maybe Dan also took a role but l am not sure about that.

Pft, I'd just watch it to look at Steve McQueen

To quote Josh Randall (McQueen's character,) "Yup." A gooooooood show.

I felt Steve McQueen was good to look at but he acted like a Ponderosa pine! Or maybe it was the material.
Anyhoo, he made up for it in The Magnificent Seven, oh boy Yes!

I loved Steve McQueen! He was a bit wooden in Wanted, but he really showed his colors in The Magnificent Seven. :thumbup

Steve McQueen was great. I really enjoyed WDOA.

I think he grew more comfortable with the character of Josh Randall as the series progressed. It was a great beginning for "The King of Cool"!

I've had the pleasure of speaking with Wright King, who was in quite a few WDOA episodes. What a nice man with some great McQueen stories.

I've also been fortunate enough to speak with Loren Janes, who became Steve McQueen's stuntman on WDOA, and continued to work with him as his double for 23 years.

I just watched the first episode the other day, and was tickled to see both Nick Adams (The Rebel) and Michael Landon.
