Perhaps the best young actor for a tv series.

Just saw Johnny Crawford on an episode of Little House. He had a gorgeous smile then and still does. If his band ever comes to Austin, I would like to know. Oh btw - Happy Birthday Johnny!

I have always enjoyed watching Johnny Crawford in the Rifleman. So glad to know that he is still bringing joy and pleasure to his fans. They do not make shows like they used to in the past. I hope that TVland brings the show back so that they can do a marathon of the show. God bless you Johnny and take care. A 53 year old fan.
