6/24 - James Drury

James Drury - "The Virginian"
JAMES DRURY, the one true 'Virginian' by who all others are measured, is the star of the first 90-minute color western TV series, ‘The Virginian’, which aired from 1962-1971. ‘The Virginian’ is the third longest running western series in the history of television. The television series was adapted from the 1902 Owen Wister western novel, 'The Virginian, A Horseman of the Plains'. Like the novel, the lead character was never given a name other than the Virginian. James Drury used that to his advantage in creating a mysterious air surrounding the Shiloh ranch foreman. "Nobody knows the name of my character," James Drury says, "not even me."  THE VIRGINIAN western TV series is currently being shown on Encore Western Channel weekdays at 4:30 PM EST and PST. Check your Time Zone for viewing time in your area. The first and second season is officially released on DVD. Mr. Drury is currently on tour to many festivals and events around the country.
