Can you name these celebrities who appeared on 'The Rifleman'?

A true pop culture sharpshooter will hit eight or more of these famous faces.

It was a good time to be an up-and-coming actor in the late 1950s. Studios needed a steady stream of men to populate its many TV Westerns. At one point, there was a couple dozen or more cowboys shows on the networks, each one requiring good guys, bad guys, local folk, bartenders, cowhands and whatnot. If you were a working actor, you were probably on a Western in 1958.

Of course, The Rifleman was one of the greatest of these classic small-screen Westerns. And it had its fair share of stars, both established and rising. 

Let's see if you can recognize these famous faces — comedians, superheroes, spies, singers and more.
  1. This acclaimed actor made an early appearance on 'The Rifleman' — in the very first episode. He returned again later that season.

You continue to advertise WKRP at 9:30 but you're putting the news on instead, bad choice! Please put WKRP in Cincinnati back on! If you have to have the news put it on at 6 p.m. like everybody else. Please take the news off and put WKRP back on! I would wait hours just to watch my WKRP and now you ruined it!
