I saw an early GUNSMOKE  episode  that in the credits at last lists— “A Cowboy”:–Charles Starrett…well, I have looked at this 3 times and I am wondering if they just  put this in as a salute to  :The Durango Kid”  who died in  1986 –he was not seen in that episode  in any scene.

Call to action, TEAM DURANGO!  Anyone have a clue to solve this mystery?

    Wow–I don’t remember the program…..but it was on an episode that was on encore western TV channel last week–March 26-30th.–either a 1/2 show or one of the early b/w l-hour shows they are running -they run two 1/2 hour shows, then an hour show..all b/w..the best ones before color.each week day evening…..-without commercials..which makes it wonderful to watch..! Starrett was definitely notin that episodem but his name was listed in the closing credits as ….. A COWBOY. .The color episodes now running on TV-LAND in color are so stretched out with a plot to fill the hour, it is sometimes seems clogged with un-needed dialogue and filler stuff…!

    I always read the cast of movies and about 10 or 12 years ago I saw the name Charles Starrett Jr. So maybe that was Jr you saw instead of Sr. If so, you would not have recognized him. I do not remember the movie. I grew up watching all of the “B” westerns, which I loved.

    Charles Starrett Jr. to my knowledge never acted, he retired back in 93 or 94 @ Edwards AFB, He was a Jet engine mech out there.. retired out of the eng shop as night shift super. I haven’t seen him in a few years, but when he retired he lived in Tehachapi, Ca he was a spittin’ image of his dad.
