Information about the western series "The Outlaws"
25 July 2007 | by (Durham,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

About the show "THE OUTLAWS"-Originally ran on NBC-TV

First Telecast of the series: September 29,1960 Last Telecast of the series: September 13,1962

The first season was in black and white (1960-1961) The second season was in living color (1961-1962)

58 episodes were produced for NBC-TV and MGM Television.

The first season(the black and white episodes from 1960-61): "The Outlaws" approached the struggle between law officers of the Old West and the desperadoes they chased from a novel point of view. Although Marshal Frank Caine(Barton MacLane),and his two deputies,Will Foreman(Don Collier),and Heck Martin(Jock Gaynor)were the series regulars with each episode was seen through the eyes of the outlaws they were pursuing. The setting for the series was the Oklahoma Territory in the 1890's,when the Dalton Boys,the Jennings Gang and other outlaws made it one of the most lawless of all the West's frontiers.

The second season(the color episodes from 1961-62): When the series "The Outlaws" returned for a second season in the fall of 1961,the change of format would bring the show from black to white to what the peacock network presented it as "the following program is brought to you in living color only on NBC." Along with the color format also were some changes. Gone were Marshal Caine(Barton MacLane),and Marshal Martin(Jock Gaynor) and this time around Will Forman(Don Collier)was promoted from deputy to United States Marshal and with his own deputy Chalk Breeson(Bruce Yarnell). The perspective of the series was now from the side of the marshals and the honest citizens rather than the criminals who would bring chaos to the territory. The action and high adventure was based in Stillwater,Oklahoma where the marshals were headquartered. Connie Masters(Judy Lewis)not only ran the Wells Fargo office but also the town's General Store and was also the love interest for Marshal Forman. Also brought on board was veteran actor Slim Pickens as the town character. Pickens had been around the Hollywood scene for years mostly starring in westerns opposite John Wayne and Gary Cooper.

When "The Outlaws" ended its two-year hiatus on NBC-TV in September of 1962,the show that replaced it ("The Virginian")went on to become TV's first full color 90 minute western.
