Eric Fleming (Gil Favor) drowned in Peru while filming a movie. He was forty-one. See more »
Despite Gil Favor and his men being on several cattle drives, the majority are clean-shaven, which would be difficult and dangerous without access to clean water. It was also rare at the time for men to be clean-shaven when working around livestock. See more »
'Hellbent for leather'-Rawhide-the drive must go on
Rawhide is my absolut favourite series. I began to watch it, when I was thirteen (one year ago😉). I was fascinated by many things in this series. Especially Eric Fleming as the tough as nails trail boss Gil Favor. It was the first movie/series I ever saw with Clint Eastwood. Since then I am a great fan of him, though I don't like his acting apearance in Rawhide so much. Well, later he became better and better but in the first seasons of Rawhide he is definetly overshadowed by Eric Fleming. (Actualky, in the later seasons too...)
In general the series was kept alive by the different roles and actors but especially by Eric Fleming. When he and five other actors, including Sheb Wooley and James Murdock, the series was dropped after 13 more episodes. Well, they could have known that before fireing the heart and soul of the series.
Rawhide is much better than the most other western series I've seen. Though it's black and white. The storys are very exiting and realistic. It is never boring to watch it, especially when you know Clint Eastwood from his later movies. It's a different as night and day.
Still Eric Fleming is my favourite in this series.
Please watch this series. It's very nice. And try to convey your children, black-and-white-western-series can be more interesting than Spongebob and other s**t.;-)
Thanks for reading
