Clint Walker had a contract dispute with Warner Brothers, which led to him briefly leaving. Under his contract, Walker had to give them 50% of his personal appearance fees, and could only record music under the Warner Brothers label. He wanted the amount cut, and to be able to sign with whatever record company he chose. The sides reached an agreement, and Walker eventually returned to work. See more »
Cheyenne fans should check out Clint's website. He has lots of photos for sale and will autograph them as well. The series was great in that Cheyenne's dedication to fairness and truth never waivered. It was a good example for kids unlike today's shows. Clint Walker deserves a lot of credit for making this show a well deserved hit. It was interesting that the producers never provided him with a "named" horse like was done in a few other westerns. He always rode "a horse." He sometimes traded them or lost them, just never named them or seemed to care much about them. I was disappointed the show didn't provide him that opportunity; guess there were so many shows the writers couldn't be distracted with a single horse story line. In any event, it's a small complaint about a truly great TV western.
