| Bravo Warner Bros Stars : John Russell and Peter Brown
Lawman was a Warner Bros western. Jack Warner's studio had several great Westerns on the Air and seen now in syndication or on cable it is like visiting old friends. At one time they had 3 separate backlot streets for the many westerns shooting there. Maverick, Cheyenne, Sugarfoot, Bronco etc

John Russell was the Marshall and Peter Brown the Deputy .I like seeing this show on cable. Peter Brown was extraordinarily handsome and magnetic and was loved by women and definitely made a name for himself with the ladies. He did a magazine layout with one of his female friends and was married I believe 4 times.

It is awesome to see in addition to the stars Messrs. Russell and Brown WB stars such as Will Hutchins, Grant Williams, Edd Byrnes, , Jack Kelly, Robert Logan, William Reynolds, Gary Vinson, Mike Road, Ty Hardin, Van Williams, Andrew Duggan. Bob Conrad, Donald May. Watching Lawman, Sugarfoot, Cheyenne, Maverick one could see these actors in various roles. Beautiful women such as Connie Stevens, Dorothy Provine, Diane McBain also were in the various WB shows. In addition to being cast in various shows these actors were cast in supporting roles of WB pictures.

Donald May plated a FBI agent in Fred McMurray's Kisses For My President, Messrs Brown and Hardin were in Merrill's Marauders, William Reynolds was in Troy Donahue's great Western A Distant Trumpet but so was Diane McBain Gary Vinson was in a Majority of One with Roz Russell and Alec Guiness, Clint Walker and Edd Byrnes were in Yellowstone Kelly, WB had its major contract stars Troy Donahue, Connie Stevens, Ty Hardin , and Bob Conrad in Palm Springs Weekend. WB StarsTy Hardin and Dorothy Provine were great in Wall of Noise directed by a fine director Richard Wilson.

There is a great group picture of Jack L. Warner walking in a WB backlot street with all the WB Stars such as Angie Dickinson, Troy Donahue, Natalie Wood, Efrem Zimbalist, Shirley Knight, and all of the actors and actresses mentioned above. They problem if that is the correct term is that there were so many actors with few movie roles to go around. Troy Donahue was starred in one big WB movie a year. Hampton Fancher, Chad Everett, were in his movies.

It was a wonderful era

RIP Russell, Brown, Zimbalist, Donahue, Conrad, Williams, Vinson, Road, Hardin,
