Today’s pic (and you remember about clicking to embiggen) revisits “Teacher of Outlaws,” in my opinion one of the finest episodes of The Big Valley. It was first broadcast on February 2, 1966. Preacher Clegg, the Scripture-quoting bad guy, and his cohort Julio (Pepe Callahan) are gloating over their latest nefarious plans.
Callahan, of Irish/Mexican heritage, was born Joseph Callahan in New Mexico. He often played characters of Latino descent on television and in films throughout the 1960s and 70s. According to a relative, he took to drinking heavily, and passed away at the relatively young age of 67.
