Chuck Connors was born on this day in 1921. He starred in my favorite TV western, The Rifleman, with Johnny Crawford and Paul Fix. Connors passed away in 1992, but The Rifleman and the character he created are as popular as ever. There’s even a reboot of the show in development, but Connors left some awfully big shoes to fill. For his fans, Chuck Connors will always be the definitive Lucas McCain.
