Did You Know?


The exterior sets of the old western town of Laramie in this series were not on the Warner Brothers backlot. They were filmed on the Universal Studios Western Street, as Revue Studios was located at Universal International Studios. Warner Brothers' Laramie Street was used in Lawman (1958), and for many years afterwards, it was also used in countless Warner Brothers movies and television projects, since the end of this show. It had also been continuously rented out for filming to several non-Warner Brothers productions, such as Little House on the Prairie (1974), amongst others. Known throughout the studio as "Laramie Street", it consisted of three streets of old western buildings, and it was the last of two separate western sets to remain standing on the Warner Brothers lot. Another western street, which existed in the central portion of the studio's backlot, was demolished in the mid 1980s. Laramie Street remained in existence until 2000, when it was demolished to make way for a collection of modern-day exterior set houses. See more »

Real, true, Americana; no apologies. Bravo!
5 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

We recently dumped cable; so much useless and never watched programming for too much dough. My wife installed (had it installed) an antenna and to my delight, through wafting around with the remote, I happened on a Laramie show in progress. I had never seen one. When all those westerns were popular, I was a teen and really didn't watch much TV then, and watched even less western type fare. Anyway, when I saw it recently, I was quickly riveted. I could not believe the verisimilitude of the show. All the little details of farm and ranch implements, the whole layout, including the period dress of the actors, the scenery, was perfect. Most of all, though, was the deep and gripping nostalgia for a time-and I remember it well- when the progeny of the people who conquered this land and made it fruitful, were portrayed without apology as the moral, strong, and brave souls they actually were. That time will come again, I'm sure, though I won't be here to see it, most likely. Laramie was neither Right nor Left. It was dramatized history, and done very very well. I receive it on a network called Gritz. I hope it stays on as long as possible. Hoagy Carmichael, a semi-regular on the show, apparently, wrote "Stardust," one of the most recorded songs ever. It bears no resemblance to what these sad days passes for music.
