Guest Star Pod 11/4-11/11 Slim Pickens

Postby BettyHT » Sun Nov 03, 2013 11:38 pm

For two decades, Slim toured the country on the rodeo circuit becoming a highly-paid and well-respected rodeo clown, a job that entailed enormous danger. When he was 31, he was given a role in a western, Rocky Mountain (1950), and quickly found a niche in both comic and villainous roles in that genre.

Image


When he was this big, lanky, fourteen-year-old California ranch kid, he went into the rodeo manager's office and said, "Mister, I want to sign up for the calf-roping but my pa says I ain't allowed to. So I can't use my right name." And the manager said, "Son, no matter what name you use, it'll be slim pickin's out there today." So the boy said, "That's as good a name as any, I reckon put me down as Slim Pickin's." The manager spelled it "Pickens," and the boy won $400 that afternoon. (As told to Ed Zern)

This was one of my favorite episodes that featured Hoss as the main Cartwright involved. The relationship between Hoss & Jim was entertainment. Another example of the kind hearted man Hoss was. :thumbup

Someone else signed up to do Slim's bio - I really wanted to, but I was too late - so i did my own research because I've always loved his performances. He was quite a man.

:laughing I was the one who signed up to do the bio which I plan to post when I finish this guest star pod. When I post the bio, if you wish, feel free to add any material that you found that I did not. I hope there's no rule against doing a bio together. I'm going to put some of the material in here this week with the various guest performances he had on Bonanza.

What a great way to choose a name, always like this actor, l reckon he never gave a bad or poor performance, of course l haven't seen everything he has done but he just gives that impression.
Falling down is easy. The hard part, the part that matters, is getting up and getting on with it. Life ain't no rehearsal...
