Californians Tidbits

This show had a complete upheaval in casting. Originally, Adam Kennedy played an Irish imigrant who headed West looking for gold but ended up in San Francisco as a vigilante. As did Sean McClory, who played a general store owner. But by mid-season the sponsors got nervous about the vigilante angle, so Kennedy was out and Coogan was in as a saloon owner and the town marshal. McClory made it thru the year but no further.

And yes, that Art Fleming you see listed would go on to host Jeopardy.

Passings

Kennedy died in 1997, Leslie in 2000, Caine in 1993 and Fleming in 1995.
