Wire PaladinSan FranciscoJust began watching a few of these .. the original 'man in black'.Always thought that opening theme song was sung by a young Johnny Cash ... but it turns out it was by "Johnny Western"(?)a friend of Cash's.People could actually *act* in the early days of tv ... most of them came from the stage where they'd actually learned a craft!I don't see a single actor/actress on television today that can act nearly as well as the least amongst the actors in these oldb&w mini-dramas. Television has been dumbed down to early gradeschool mentality. And the actors are just cheap 'faces'.Also .. nearly ALL of the characters on these early drama's wereover 30 ... many in their forties, fifties and beyond. Todaythere's a trap door for any actor over 50. I recall even Steve Martin declaring that the day he turned 50 his phone began ringingso infrequently he found himself checking it regularly to see if it was still operational. "Why ... back when I was a kid ... !"nl
