I missed one because the man who played Count Alfredo di Montova also played a character once who came to North Fork to kill Lucas

#9 Should have read something to the affect of Dennis Harper (Vernon) having won by way of forfeit of Lucas McCain. Lucas actually threw the shooting competition to protect Mark.

"You got 11 out of 13" --------Did you know all these foes or did the friendly faces fool you? ---I got #s 2 and 13 wrong.

Now wait a minute, #8, I got Cesare Danova's portrayal of Count Alfredo di Montova's first appearance mixed up with his latter appearance in season five in which he played Mario Arsatti, someone hired to kill ole Lucas McCain. I did the same with the Sammy Davis Jr. episode shown here on the quiz. A couple of tricky ones for sure. 11/13...still not bad.😉

13 out of 13!
But #7 is wrong. Dorf did NOT come to town looking for Lucas. Dorf was in a prison wagon stopped in town for supplies; Lucas rapped Dorf's knuckles to make him let go of Mark; Dorf swore revenge on Lucas, escaped, and holed up in Sweeney's until Lucas emerged from the hotel to fight him.

11/13 Great series, but wish I had a dollar for each time Lucas was beat mercifully by a small gang! One on one he held his own and usually prevailed.

11/13. Missed #6 and #12.

We tend to think of Buddy Hackett as a comedian and Sammy Davis Jr. as a singer, but both had pretty impressive acting credentials.

He played a pretty mean character in one episode and a ditzy one in another. I heard he wasn't very nice in real life.

The Sammy one got me.. I should have read the question fully thru because it even said there was two episodes he was in but I only remembered him being a friend on both.. he did start out as bad guy but in the end of both I thought they become close ..

I got 11 out of 13.. missed the one about the cat guy..

When Sammy played the enemy he was a gunfighter out for revenge for his fathers death. Lucas ended up shooting him at the end so I guess they were not friends.
