Paul fix also played Norm Carraway the episode “Guilty Conscience”. He was Micah’s look alike. So technically, he was in two episodes where he played someone other than Micah.

Lucas McCain did not use (fire) his rifle in all episodes. He carried it or in one case, threw it, but didn't fire it. Chuck Connors' height was 6' 5"...not 6' 1/2 feet. Still tall though...but it's a quiz, let's keep it right. Finally, Paul Fix may have had a 2 second cameo in the pilot, but he was more known for playing the double role of "Billy Carraway" and of course Marshall Micah Torrance in season 4 episode 27's "Guilty Conscience". So it's two. How could the MeTV quiz team have forgotten ole Charming Billy?...LOL

* Paul Fix was also Micah's look-alike in another episode. ☺ BTW Edgar Buchanan was Doc Burrage in a few episodes & as a real life Dentist was perhaps actor best qualified to portray a doctor. ☺

Mark was waaaaay younger than 12 when the show started!

My favorite episode of "The Rifleman" is "The Sixteenth Cousin", in which a Japanese nobleman visits North Fork. In the episode, the nobleman mentions someone who really hasn't gotten his due from American history--Townsend Harris, who was the first US Consul-General to Japan and who was born in Hudson Falls NY (I used to live there). There is a very good movie about Harris called "The Barbarian and The Geisha", which features John Wayne (of all people!) playing Harris.

Got 10. Don't know about guns; didn't have my eyes on Doc, lol. I worked on a show in Tucson with Chuck & we dated briefly. He asked me to marry him but it didnt happen as our faith was at different levels. Miss Chuck and Johnny; RIP both of you. Thanks for The Rifleman show.

Question 12 is wrong. It says Paul Fix play a part other than Micah only once.
He play the Doctor in the first episode true, but he also played an Irishman in another who supposedly was a husband and father who left his wife and son, and when they passed thru town, she though Micah was him as the looked alike..

11/12 favorite Western, on Plutotv they have a channel dedicated to just the rifleman that how good it is😁

#12 is only right if you count it as ONLY playing somebody except Micah. One time he played Micah AND a lookalike who ran out on his wife.

I was going to point out the same thing about Q12. Paul Fix played his usual Micah role and also that of a woman's runaway husband with a different name (can't recall but he had an Irish accent). The man had left his wife with a sone whom she named Habcook (not sure of the spelling).

7/12 knew 6, guessed 1 right, guessed 5 wrong. I remember having the rifleman's toy rifle when I was a kid. It had a metal part that flipped up inside the lever, so I could imitate the show's rapid fire opening.
