Christopher Colt was apparently a gun salesman but was in fact a government agent tracking down notorious bad guys. His cousin Sam took the lead when the studio had contract disputes with the original star.
The first original television series produced by a major Hollywood film studio Warner Brothers. (Some of "Disneyland", which had premiered the year before, did not really consist of programming made exclusively for TV). See more »
How wonderful to see the re-runs now of "Cheyenne". Clint Walker was my mother's favourite western actor. She loved the way he looked and the way he talked and his soft-spokeness. I don't think she would have cared if Mr. Walker could even act because he was so 'gorgeous' to her. Fortunately, he was terrific in his role and we never missed an episode. Those were the days of real television..the 'Golden' days, I think they call them and you can see why. Families could sit down and watch such great shows together and not worry about bad language or overt violence. Since I was growing up in England, I learned a lot about America and the old western days. It was fascinating and gave me the courage to come over and see it,years later. It is still fascinating and thank goodness we can all see these shows again and truly realise how great they were.
