I noticed there is a preview for next week's Bronco episode on the the third season 3 episode of Sugarfoot. Nice!

I actually think it is fun to spot when Warner Brothers reuses movie scripts again for their TV shows.

The Bronco episode, "Riding Solo", is a reworking of the Randolph Scott movie, "RIDING SHOTGUN".

Got my copy on Friday and watched the first episode. I like the show already. Looking forward to finally seeing this series for the first time.

Burt Kennedy directed four of the final Lawman episodes. At least two were reworkings of his film scripts. The episode "Sunday" was a condensed version of Ride Lonesome, and "The Wanted Man" was (I'm pretty sure) a remake of WB's Fort Dobbs. Ride Lonesome was a Columbia film but was redone as a Lawman ep anyway.

 

Incidentally, you can always spot a Burt Kennedy script because there's sure to be an exchange like the following in it:

 

-- "I did it." "Did you?"

 

-- "There's someone there." "Is there?"

 

-- "I've known him a long time." "Have you?"

"Sometimes there's a problem a man can't just ride around.".... "He's making the hill harder to climb".

 

Burt Kennedy was a great recycler.  He uses some of his Randolph Scott western dialog in the episodes of COMBAT! he wrote and or directed.  And the Billy and Littlejohn characters in Combat! were similer to the young gun characters in his Scott westerns, like RIDE LONESOME and COMANCHE STATION.
