...an adult western told from a cavalryman's point of view

"Boots and Saddles" was a first.: an adult western told from a cavalryman's point of view. Unlike the earlier "Adventures of Rin Tin Tin", which targeted a more juvenile audience, "Boots and Saddles" followed in the lead of other "adult" westerns of the late '50's in that it targeted young adults who were tuned in each week to "Gunsmoke" and the like. Set at Fort Lowell, AZ Territory in the 1880's, this first run syndicated series followed the stories of the 5th U.S. Cavalry as they fought and tried to live with the Apaches. The main characters were all very believable and seemed perfectly cast for their roles. The lead, John Pickard (Capt. Shank Adams), was actually considered for the lead on "Gunsmoke" when John Wayne initially turned down the role and prior to James Arness being cast. This series was very entertaining and novel for its cavalry characters as opposed to sheriff's, gunslingers, ranchers, etc. A very worthwhile and fondly remembered series.
