In the 50s, as a kid, I watched Gunsmoke, Maverick, Have Gun Will Travel and the others.
When Johnny Yuma, 'The Rebel' came along, there was no need to watch the others. When it went off the air in two short years, I never watched Westerns again. This series said it all, the only one I thought projected the West as it might have been, the only one worth looking back at 50 years later.
It had decent scripts and all the technical trappings, but Nick Adams was a rebel from the first episode to the last.
I never cared for much Nick did before or after 'Rebel' but James Dean would have been proud of what his friend did in bringing a 'Rebel Without a Cause' to the west. I think Nick wanted it this way
