Other Warner TV stars-in-waiting make occasional appearances in the show's first season, including Peter Brown (“Lawman”), Edd Byrnes (“77 Sunset Strip”), and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (also “77 Sunset Strip”), who debuts his recurring role as the amusingly refined con artist Dandy Jim Buckley.
Of all those in Warners' late-'50s TV stable, Garner found the greatest big-screen success, and this is the show that launched his career.
He's still fun to watch as he brings his genuine laid-back Oklahoma demeanor to one of early television's most memorable characters, and the series remains standing as one of the best of that era. For winning entertainment, it's a sure bet.
