Archie Butler - "The Rifleman" [cached]

Archie Butler - 1 of 5 pages

Archie was a trick and bareback rid ing rodeo veteran.
Archie has been in more episodes then anybody with the exception of the regular cast and he probably was in more episode then some of them. He was constantly on the set.
Here is a list of the episodes that I have 'spotted' Archie in, although we do know that he has done a lot of work behind the scenes.
Sometimes Archie was a stand-in for Paul Fix.
Archie also was in "Branded" - 'Yellow is for Courage' as one of the townsmen/cowboy and "Call to Glory" part 1 as a soldier.
I got this e-mail from Poncho about Archie & here is what he had to say.....
I knew Archie when I was a kid, my Dad and him were partners in a pack station they packed hunters and fisherman into the High Sierras. Archie brought Chuck Connors and another man there to hunt.
Archie was a true cowboy, he had been in pictures since in the 30's this all took place around 1958 or 59. Thank you for the memories. Poncho
"Your Grandfather is a Stuntman on TV."
I got this short e-mail from a granddaughter of Archie Butler & thought I'd share it with you.
Dear Cowgirl - Stumbled across your website searching for my grandfather on line. He is actually my step-grandfather.
Archie was on many other Western TV Series. Before "The Rifleman" he was in "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" - #25'The Englishman' Archie had a talking part and even has a name for his character, Barney.
In another episode #28 'One of Jesse's Gang's' you can actually see Archie double for John Craven as Archie (as Craven) goes up to a horse and gets tossed off.
It sure sounds like Archie had a big heart!
A rchie Butler - 'The Sharpshooter'
A rchie Butler actually did have a speaking role in 'The Brother-in-law'..... If you watch the rodeo scenes and listen closely you can hear Archie yell several lines. This is the only time that I know of Archie to have a speaking role in "The Rifleman."

Archie Butler's only ... [cached]

Archie Butler's only speaking role. "The Rifleman" - Brother-in-law - Bloopers

The Rifleman "Welcome to the McCain Ranch" Chit Chat on bloopers and things worth mentioning!
'The Brother-in-law' episode #5 - 2 of 8 pages
In the beginning you can see & hear Archie cheering on Lucas. As far as I know this episode is the only one that he has a speaking role. Cowgirl!
I wanted to let you know that you finally ended a mystery for us re: someone we noticed years ago on "The Big Valley" (my real passion) who appeared continuously in nonspeaking, character type roles. He is one of the main reasons, other than the producers, who made us realize that these two shows were intertwined, but we just couldn't find any information on him. The Virtual Valley site, which I've been on for years, hasn't picked up on him yet, at least I've never found any info. We were so glad to find him on your site and wanted to write to you sooner about Archie Butler. We enjoy looking for him and really get a bang how they often have him in two shots in the same scene. For instance, in 'The Brother-in-law' episode #5-when Uncle Johnny is riding the bronc, Archie is the wrangler holding the horse before he blasts off. Cut to the cowboys sitting on the fence, and there is Archie clapping. Thanks Charlene F.!
Archie is the wrangler holding the horse before Johnny blasts off.
When the ride is over & Johnny wins you can see Archie applauding - file footage from the first scene when Lucas rides Duster.
It is so neat to see that Charlene F. noticed Archie.
Archie was on all those shows back then, you just need to look in the background. Sadly he went unaccredited for all his work.
