Wondering again about western stars.

A large portion of my TV watching time is spent on the Western Channel.  I love westerns and especially some of the old western TV series that originally played back in the black and white TV days.  Of course these shows are still in black and white but for some reason it doesn't matter, they are still great and I enjoy watching them.  So, I thought it may be fun to have another trivia test on that subject this morning.

To start with, can any of you name the seven (7) actors that played the leading roles in The Magnificent Seven?  I will start you out with Yul Brynner.  Now, you only have 6 more to name.

Answers at the bottom of the blog.

OK, think I am going to let you off that easy?  How about matching the famous name with the real persons name.  Here is a list of famous names; see if you can match them with their real names:

1.  Billy the Kid
2.  Black Bart
3.  Calamity Jane
4.  Kit Carson
5.  Butch Cassidy
6.  Buffalo Bill Cody
7.  Wild Bill Hickock
8.  Doc Holliday
9.  Annie Oakly
10. Belle Starr

Match the names above with the real names below.  Some are give-a-ways since they are very close to the famous names, but others are a little harder.  Just have fun with it.

A.  Myra Belle Shirley
B.  Phoebe Ann Moses
C.  John Henry Holiday
D.  James Butler Hickock
E.  William Fredric Cody
F.  Robert Leroy Parker
G.  Christopher Houston Carson
H.  Martha Jane Canary
I.   Charles E. Boles
J.   William Bonney 

Now that was easy, wasn't it?

As Promised, her are the answers to the Magnificent Seven:

Yul Brynner
Steve McQueen
Charles Bronson
James Coburn
Robert Vaughn
Brad Dexter
Horst Buchhoiz

Now, you all have a yippy kye aye day, you hear?


  1. I don't know much about cowboys..now dogs ruling my life I know about. 4:00 a.m. One of my dogs always wants outside..cats are either coming in or going out too..I go to the bathroom and then check the door to see who wants back in. I tell my family all the time "This is our last round of pets, when they are gone..that's it!". I have 8 to 10 years left with this bunch....a full night's sleep is far in the future for me.

  2. Trouble, not all of us like them.

    Jill, we have three dogs that rule our house, but thank goodness they now like to sleep in. I have to get them up in the mornings.

    1. 1-J
      It wasn't until I matched them up that I saw the reverse relationship.

  3. Ed, I thought it would be easier to give the answers that way. Yes, you are correct.
