Originally conceived as a vehicle for Vivian Vance, who shot a pilot for the show in 1958 for CBS. When CBS passed Desi Arnaz retooled the show and cast Joanne Dru in the role of Babs Hooten after Dru's 1957 pilot for a Desilu show called Adventures of a Model failed to be picked up as a series.

My favorite character on this show was the Indian chief. I liked the way he entered a scene in his Continental Mark V convertible loaded with hot looking maidens. He wore a huge flowing feathered head-dress. The maidens had sexy buckskin outfits. His musical theme was a jazzy arrangement of old-time B western 'Indian' dance music. DA DA, DA DA, DA DA,DA DA,DA DA, DA DA, DA DA DA. He sold 'authentic' Indian trinkets which were made in Asia and planned to buy back the United States by following his investments in the Wall Street Journal. His intention was to return the country to his people. Since he had the only supply center anywhere near the ranch, the New York family which had bought the ranch had to deal with him. Today, some Indian nations, such as the Navaho are very rich.
