    * Soon after Clint Eastwood made his Italian westerns, Jolly Films (which produced Per un pugno di dollari (1964)) came out with a film called (in English) "The Magnificent Stranger", which was actually two episodes of "Rawhide" (1959) edited together ("The Backshooter" and "Incident of the Running Man"). Clint Eastwood sued and the film was withdrawn.

    * Clint Eastwood got his role in "Rawhide" (1959) while visiting a friend at the CBS lot when a studio exec spotted him because he "looked like a cowboy."

    In some episodes Gil Favor is seen wearing Wrangler jeans - rivets and the trademark "W" on two pockets. The Wrangler brand wasn't sold until 1947.

    Rawhide is an American Western series that aired for eight seasons on the CBS network
    on Friday nights, from January 9, 1959 to September 3, 1965,
    before moving to Tuesday nights from September 14, 1965 until January 4, 1966,
    with a total of 217 black-and-white episodes.
    Starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood, the series
    was produced and sometimes directed by Charles Marquis Warren
    who also produced early episodes of Gunsmoke.

    Spanning seven and a half years, Rawhide was the fifth-longest-running American television Western,
    beaten only by eight years of Wagon Train, nine years of The Virginian,
    fourteen years of Bonanza, and twenty years of Gunsmoke.

    Another childhood favourite, but to me,
    not as great as the ones, already mentioned.
    Ironically, Clint Eastwood was critiscized in this series,
    and critics felt he would go no futher.
    Great knowledgeable critics, heh!!!!

    Interestingly Clint began filming
    A Fistful of Dollars, in 1964 while on a summer break from Rawhide.
    Apparently he took with him, and wore the same boots,
    shirt and gun grips that he wore on the series.
    He got the role after practically every other
    cowboy actor in Hollywood had turned it down.
