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.

Hard to believe they were only born about seven weeks apart, too

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.

12/12 Duel was one of the better low budget movies from 1971.

9/12 not bad, thought I would have done worse. On #6 never heard of those shows.

11 for 12. I missed number 5, I outsmarted myself, I figured the answer "Gunsmoke" was too
obvious to be the correct choice. Shows you what I know.
Neat fact: In the intro to McCloud, Weaver is shown hanging from a copter as it flies high over
skyscrapers. It really was him, he was on top of a building right by the edge when the pilot
zoomed up and over before the stunt double could take Weaver's place. He was hanging
on a rope, no other lines securing him, zipping thru the air.
Fortunately he was an excellent athlete in good shape and was able to hang on before the pilot was radioed to land ASAP. Weaver almost made the 1948 Olympic team.
