Trivia

This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30 to 9:00 EST during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to it competition. On ABC it went up against Batman, The Flying Nun, and Bewitched; on NBC, Daniel Boone and Ironside. In the 1960's and 70's it was a common practice for the networks to rebroadcast old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for years. Such was the case for this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled. See more »

I've caught the show once or twice on TBS (I think)--early Saturday mornings. Thing is--it's been edited down to a 60 minute show--so as to more easily sell it for syndication. There goes much of the dramatic complexity of it. Also--it isn't called 'Cimarron Strip'. It's 'Marshall Crown'--I believe. I even tried @ a video store near me--Audio Video Plus--& I found some of them. I think Stuart Whitman, himself, might own the rights these days.

I LOVED this series. Others were 2-dimensional, by comparison. Jim Crown was a former gunslinger, who had reformed. Sometimes, friends from the bad old days would show up--thinking they'd be cut slack. Wrong. Well--Crown WOULD try to dissuade them from illegal activities--to no avail. He'd end up having to kill his old friend--w/much remorse.

I remember reading that, when CBS cancelled the show, they issued a memo, explaining that the characters should be either good or bad--no shades of grey. In other words, the show was too sophisticated for it's time.
