Check out this great moment from the second season of the western series Laramie. In Queen of Diamonds, Slim Sherman (John Smith) has coffee at the Laramie cafe with guest star Julie London. Instead of a pitcher of cream, the Chinese waiter gives them a gravy boat! Either the prop staff was off their game that day, or they thought it would be charming for folks in a western town to make do. Perhaps a rowdy cowboy broke their pitcher? Or maybe cowboys like a LOT of cream in their coffee.
(It’s always the little things that amuse me…)
