After starring in the hit television series "Wild Bill Hickock" actor Guy Madison was not pleased with the scripts he was offered, having been typecast, so he moved to Europe and continued his career, as did several other American actors and actresses from the small screen. I have now seen through Amazon Instant and other outlets several of these European films and I would say most are better forgotten. I believe Guy Madison moved to Rome and had a good life and prolonged his acting career and status as a "star" but one might wish he had been given better scripts. So many television stars found themselves cast aside once a successful tv series was over; few made a successful transition back to films. Guy Madison was better and more successful than so many others.
