Heading 'em up and moving 'em out online since 1996
Fans of the western series Rawhide will find much of interest here at the Rawhide site, including an episode guide and the text of the series' episode introductions, most often delivered by "Gil Favor, trail boss." You will find also a great number of episode reviews, posted by visitors to this site, and a form which you may use to post your own reviews. So sit back, pull up a plate of Wishbone's chili, and have yourself a good read.

About me

I first created the Rawhide site late in 1996. I taught myself HTML on it while taking care of my then infant daughter. A lot has changed since then, in both the real and virtual worlds. My baby is now in college, and her little sister is in middle school. Meanwhile, I've published several books, and since cutting my teeth on Rawhide, I've created a lot of other web sites. There's a complete list of them available here. But here are the greatest hits:

  • dhamel.com: my websites and publications
  • Reading Herodotus: my book on Herodotus, written for people without any previous knowledge of the subject
  • Trying Neaira: site for my book Trying Neaira: The True Story of a Courtesan's Scandalous Life in Ancient Greece
  • the-DEBlog.com: general blog
  • book-blog.com: book reviews
  • TwitterLit: Tweeting the first lines of books so you don't have to
  • KidderLit: Tweeting the first lines of kids' books so you don't have to
  • ScatterLit: Tweeting toilet-themed literature so you don't have to
  • The Twitter Herodotus: an abbreviated version of Herodotus' History of the Persian Wars; one 140-character post per day

Queen of Outer Space. Eric stars with Zsa Zsa Gabor, dahling, in this hilarious sci-fi flick. A reviewer at the Internet Movie Database says the movie "reeks of cardboard sets, silly dialogue, and more phallic symbols, hot babes, and sexual innuendo than you can wave a stick (or laser gun) at."

Conquest of Space. Eric stars as Captain Barney Merritt in this story about the first manned expedition to Mars. A reviewer at amazon.com numbers among the movie's merits its inclusion of: "MST3K ready dialog! The obligitory accidental weightlessness scene! ... The first ever burial in space! The first ever snowfall on Mars!" In other words, you can't lose!

The Glass Bottom Boat. Doris Day mistaken as a spy! Sounds like a light-hearted 60's romp to me. In addition to our man Eric Fleming, the movie also features Arthur Godfrey, Paul Lynde, Dick Martin, and Dom DeLuise.
