Sir, could you please tell me ...

The wheel thing: Wagon Train's Horton and Bond

Question: Sir, could you please tell me who the main stars were on Wagon Train? Thank you.

Answer: Thanks for the respect, Teri (I get so little), but as the old boot-camp admonishment goes, don't call me "sir" — I work for a living!

Premise: This classy Western followed the trials of a California-bound wagon train after the Civil War. There were regulars and some action, but the emphasis was on strong storytelling and top guests such as Bette Davis, Jane Wyman, Ronald Reagan, Lee Marvin and Joseph Cotten. John Ford even came on board to direct 1960's `The Colter Craven Story.' John McIntire replaced Ward Bond after the latter's death in 1961. The Bond shows aired in syndication as `Major Adams, Trailmaster.'
