I recently retired and have the opportunity to watch The Rifleman as I did as a child. Back then I followed the story line and waited for the shootout. What I see now is the messages in the plot and how great an actor Mr. Crawford was in that show. Way beyond his years....best compliment I can offer....he never seemed to be acting. The other thing I noticed is how well he could ride a horse. Lost art, for sure...even with adult actors now. We have first hand experience with Alzheimer's and used the awful situation to "give back"...one of the few blessings available with that disease. We send prayers and love to Mr. Crawford and his family. Glad this website is available. Thanks for being a wonderful part of our lives. Jon and Glenda

After reading all the entries on this page, I'm finding it difficult to think of something that hasn't already been said. Please brace yourselves for repetition! Mr. Crawford, Some of my earliest TV memories were of you as Mark McCain with Chuck Connors. I did not know about your 'teen idol' years recording music until I was an adult. I DID know of your orchestra and have enjoyed hearing you perform. I also appreciate songs from the 20s, 30s and 40s and have performed many times (one of the instruments I play is the banjo ukulele) using these early songs. Today I was watching some of your orchestral performances on Youtube and it occurred to me that I might contact you. Finding your web page, I discovered your - forgetfulness - which I can relate to, having suffered a brain injury in the early 80s. Anyway, it is my hope that you maintain as much memory as you can. I have appreciated your work, both with acting and with music, and I wanted to contact you and tell you so. Thank you!

As a big Rifleman fan (was back then, still am today), two of my favorite lines of Johnny’s are from early episodes “seems like the Lord’s DEAD SET against us havin our own place” after their house burns down - also, “Whiskey make ya work better? Supper will” in Paul Fix’s 1st show as Micah The authenticity of the show remains to this day imo - it wasn’t just acting for Johnny, he lived it - expert rider, became a full fledged rodeo cowboy - was considered one of the best ropers around - few have had the career Johnny has had

Hello Mr. Crawford! Like so many others, I grew up watching The Rifleman on TV and admiring the bond you shared with Chuck Connors. I read your Wikipedia biography and am glad to know you are still with us. Through your acting and music, you have contributed to the happiness of so many - a wonderful gift. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for generously working hard to bring quality family television to us for many years. Although many years have passed since those television days, your dedication and terrific presence is always remembered and appreciated. I pray you stay strong and enjoy many more years of retirement and happiness. God Bless you and Mrs. Connors always.

Dear Mr. Crawford, I hope you will be Able to get this message. From a kid who watched a kid on TV, you became my favorite kid actor and you still are my favorite today. I showed my son David your picture and let him know about “The Rifleman” growing up. I pray that you know Jesus as your Lord Savior. It is so important that we spend eternity with the one who created us. I Loved you back then Mr. Crawford, and I still today. You will always be my favorite. I hope one day I will be able to meet you in heaven. God Bless you, Dolores Winters

I just ordered the 60th Anniversary boxed set. I decided it was a necessity. I am fine physically but I live alone and my cat recently died so I'm feeling ragged and frayed emotionally. I don't want to take meds to deal with being depressed. I need to see good triumph over evil. A good looking man with his shirt off doesn't hurt either! This set is better than a 5 quart bucket of ice cream. By the way, this is not an advertisement. I am sharing my cure for emotional distress. Love and hugs to you, Johnny. It's a good thing your parents met and fell in love because if they hadn't we wouldn't have you!

Crazy that I love a show that went off the air before I was born, but I do! I know I'm just one of the faceless many that does this, but please give Johnny my heartfelt best wishes. It's good that he loves music, because that has been shown to help tremendously with Alzheimer's patients. I know the love of fans means nothing next to the love of family, but it seems like Johnny is covered in both. God bless you, Johnny!

Hola, soy un admirador de chico de la serie rifleman. y me gustaba no sólo el trabajo de chuk Connors, sino también el papel de hijo que hacía jhonny crawford, tan bien que parecía real y de la época.Excelentes interpretaciones y de buenos mensajes y enseñanzas para la vida, de un padre solo haciendo de madre también. Mi abrazo de tan lejos como Sudamérica para el gran jhonny y que por su delicada salud siga rodeado de afecto familiar, y de sus íntimos aunque ya no esté Lucas, su segundo padre.Abrazo y saludos

Always real impressed w/Johnny’s riding expertise - the filming of the Rifleman horse race in the episode w/James Westerfield (as Jake Preston) and Whit Bissell (Gabe Fenway) is Superb, leaving no doubt it’s Johnny & not a stunt double - same thing when he leaps off his horse while it’s still running, & dashes over to tell his blind friend Fay (Cliff Osmond) that the man Fay has been looking for is in town - awesome stuff, & keep the love for Johnny coming!

Thanks so much for sharing the current photos of Johnny, there’s a lotta love there for us fans to be so well connected - he gets his foot into the stirrup IN MIDAIR in the Blind Man episode with Cliff Osmond, it’s so cool - best always to a great actor, cowboy & musician
