In honor of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood,

today’s 1969 tribute is to actors Wayne Maunder and James Stacy from TV’s Lancer. They are played in the movie by Luke Perry and Timothy Olyphant. As a kid, I was not a western fan (more sci-fi) but loved me some Lancer. James Stacy also co-starred with William Wellman, Jr. in the beach/ski movies A Swingin’ Summer with Raquel Welch and Quinn O’Hara and Winter a-Go-Go with Beverly Adams, Julie Parrish, Nancy Czar, and Linda Rogers. The films are profiled in my McFarland book Hollywood Surf & Beach Movies: The First Wave, 1959-1969.

I read that Tarantino bought the rights to LANCER so that he could depict it in his HOLLYWOOD film. He must have been a big fan.

I don’t recall watching LANCER myself, but I do remember Wayne Maunder from THE LEGEND OF CUSTER and Russ Meyer’s THE SEVEN MINUTES.

Lancer was the only western I watched as a kid. Hope he releases the series on Blu-ray.
