The Roy Rogers Festival always highlights the Scioto County native son's role as the ultimate good guy, but it also featured some memorable bad guys - and a bad girl.

Stella Stevens showed off her publicity shots as the hot blonde playing along side a young Elvis, while Ted Markland says he loved playing the no good low down Reno on television's High Chapparal.

Denny Miller played good guy Duke Shannon on Wagon Train, the television and movie Tarzan and Gorton's Fisherman. Miller says as a bad guy he was beat up by the best of them.

“I’ve been roughed up by all of them, and they ride off into the sunset with the pretty girl, and I end up eating dirt on the ground,” Miller said.

The Roy Rogers Festival continues all day Saturday at the downtown Portsmouth Ramada Inn, where the public can meet the whole cowboy gang.
