I like and truly believe that "Boss"#1 (Edmond O'Brian) made a much better Will Varner!
The chemistry with the character of "Ben" (Roy Thinnes) was competitive yet honest and respectful. It's fun even today, to see them outwit each other. It's too bad that he did not finish the series and was replaced. It would have been a real treat to see him finally give Ben and Clara his blessing. It seems to me that he knew Ben and Clara were best together, if he would just look past the money. Looking at the episodes with Dan O'H, he came off as just mean . I don't like his portrayal.
