Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

After he finished Wagon Train, Robert Horton went on to A Man Called Shenandoah, which ran 1965-66. A man shot and left for dead on the trail is found and revived. He has no recollection of his past and, calling himself Shenandoah, roams the West in search of his identity.

San Felipe Pueblo (Eastern Keres: Katishtya [kʰɑtʰiʂcʰɑ], Navajo Tsédááʼkin) is a census-designated place in Sandoval County, New Mexico, and is located 10 miles north of Bernalillo. As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 2,080. It is part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area. The Pueblo, founded in 1706, comprises Native Americans who speak an eastern dialect of the Keresan languages.

The Pueblo celebrates the annual Feast of St. Philip on May 1, when hundreds of pueblo people participate in traditional corn dances.

This Navajo silver and turquoise ring from Eagle Rock Trading Post in Texas is a revival of a style that was popular in the 1950's.

Younger readers are familiar with the plot of The Wild Wild West because of the 1999 movie with Will Smith, but before that came the TV series than ran from 1965-69.
Two Secret Service Agents, equipped with a wide array of gizmos, work for the government in the Old West. This show starred Robert Conrad and Ross Martin and was part western, part fantasy, part science fiction. They were always confronting some megalomaniac who was plotting to create a new world order and of course there was always a beautiful henchwoman involved. Conrad handled the action and romance while Martin was a master of disguises and dialects.

Conrad was in several subsequent series such as Jesse Hawkes and High Sierra Rescue. Martin was later in Hawaii Five-O and died in 1981.

I've saved Gunsmoke, the king of them all, for last. Who would have thought that a western series would last for 20 years, from 1955-75? I think this review from IMDb pretty well sums it up.

In black and white or in color it was consistently good, in large part, due to its talented cast. Originally John Wayne was offered the part but felt TV was not his cup of tea. He recommended a tall, good looking James Arness to play Matt Dillon and the rest is history. For the first 9 years, Dennis Weaver played Matt's devoted friend and deputy. Amanda Blake was perfect in the role of Miss Kitty, who ran the local Dodge City saloon. Milburn Stone, a long time screen actor, was given the part of Doc Adams, an outspoken man with a heart of gold. Then there was Ken Curtis who played Festus Hagen, a lovable deputy who was an equal replacement for Dennis Weaver. For 20 years, Gunsmoke graced the television line up at CBS. It was a different western in that its scripts were often filled with emotional stories that developed its characters. It employed many of our finest actors in guest roles. Realistic filming in Thousand Oaks, Ca. and in southwest Utah added to its appeal.

Well folks, that ends my list of the 1950's and 60's classic westerns. If you know of any I missed, let me know. I've omitted shows like Sky King because it was set in the present, and Daniel Boone because it was set in the East.

"Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in." No, that's not Michael Corleone speaking, it's me. Ffuries tipped me off to a comprehensive list of TV series. So far I'm only through the letter E and I've found 16 that weren't on my original list.

This could be a lifetime work, but I'll sprinkle them into the thread occasionally.

Sorry, I'll go sit in the time out corner. Couldn't let this thread fade off into the sunset that easy.........
