"He figured that he'd been pushed enough"
Nick Adams starred in this post Civil War western The Rebel and unlike many
series was the one and only cast member. Johnny Yuma went west to do a bit of soul searching. Fighting on the losing side will have you analyzing yourself
a lot. And he kept a journal of his travels.
His life might have been a lot easier had he worn traditional cowboy attire. But
every week there was Adams in part f his Confederate uniform. Would have
saved him a lot grief but then about half the episodes in the two year run
would have disappeared. And Adams was always playing young men with a
chip on their shoulder.
he Rebel lasted two seasons and was faithfully watched by my Ukranian
grandparents because they liked to see a nice Ukranian kid like Nick Adams
make good. That he did but he died way too young.
