I think you're the best then and now. Great work.

Mr. Peter's walk in The Big Valley was so stylish and when he rode the horse, it was really rugged. He is one of my favourite cowboy actors.

I would count the days until Big Valley came on! Nick was so cool! Then as an adult, I discovered more of his body of work and have recently purchased `ShockCorridor` WOW! Talk about intense! If you haven`t seen it, rent it. (But remember it is an extremely `dated` picture but still incrediably powerful) A wonderful actor and I`ve heard a singer as well. I`m currently searching for his CDs. You`re really something Mr. B!
