"COLT .45" DESERVED A BETTER FATE

This western from the huge stable out of Warner Bros. probably had more things going against than for it. Although seemingly well cast with a soon to be disgruntled Wayde Preston as Christopher Colt portraying a government agent posing as a gun salesman tracking down various types of bad guys the show was basically entertaining as he was not quite as light as Maverick but not as hard nosed as John Russells "Lawman".As the popularity of Colt .45 grew, Wayde Preston felt so should his paycheck. After having to mingle reruns with recently completed episodes and realizing Colt .45 just might have something going W.B. flexed and Preston came back, but not for long. After another dispute with the studio Preston left again and Sam Colt Jr.played by Donald May eventually replaced Preston causing the show to lose its momentum and ceased production in 1960 concluding its three year run. The show was also plagued by several rehashed episodes already used by other W.B. western series.One wonders what could have been.
