9/12 with some lucky guesses. Excellent athlete, pilot in ww2, long Hollywood career, well liked and way ahead of his time on environmental issues. I believe Mr Weaver was a good man. I would have liked to have met him.

I BOMBED on this one, I had no idea Dennis was in such demand! BTW what's this business about Weaver mostly being remembered for "Chester"? I had never seen the b/w Gunsmoke episodes until I bought em on DVD! I primarily knew Dennis Weaver from McCLOUD on Wednesday nights on NBC! Even with DUEL I asked "Why's that crazy truck driver chasing McCloud?!"

Missed 10, 11 and 12. Gentle Ben was one of the very first TV shows I remember. I remember Clint Howard being in it as well.

Gotta admit, a few were just lucky guesses.

9 out of 12.

I always liked Dennis Weaver. McCloud was one of my dad's favourite shows along with Cannon, Mannix and Starsky and Hutch

12/12, surprised as several were just wild guesses, like #6, I've never heard of any of them.

All I know about Dennis Weaver is that he and Don Knotts died on the same day at the same age.

9/12; fun but tough quiz. I do not know much about Dennis Weaver and did not watch much of the shows he was in.
