Whistle Me Up This Memory From Classic 1950's Television
6ft.3in.Pat Conway starring Sherriff Clay Hollister was in charge of keeping thing orderly in the "Town Too Tough To Die". The show originally ran on ABC from October 16, 1957 to October 9, 1959. Richard Eastham played double duty as editor of the Epitaph and as narrator of the show.Tombstone Territory came out of the stable that produced the likes of Bat Masterson and Highway Patrol and a slew of other popular 1950 TV series.Pat Conway handled his role as Clay Hollister quite well as his family are no strangers to the performing arts.(His mother was silent screen star Francis Bushman).Tombstone Territory was never short on shoot-em ups or fistic violence as was the norm for westerns of its day.Has it changed? As a kid in the fifties I had an ear for those catchy tunes that were so prevelant back in those days and "Whistle Me Up A Memory" was one of the best.As with so many other entertaining TV show from yesteryear (and many from ZIV) the only copies available from this show are a few 16mm transfers. What a shame!
