Based upon a real person.

"Hec Ramsey" provided an interesting character. There were two essential ingredients. Start with Richard Boone's appealing gruffness. Add the essence of an interesting and unusual story. It worked! Pity that Boone and Universal could not iron out their differences. It was a worthwhile show.

There was another element which gave the show appeal. It was said far and wide in 1972 that Hec Ramsey was based upon a genuine character. Reportedly this gentleman was a detective from Georgia named Hec Thomas, who went west and left a legend of frontier criminology. Unfortunately, references on Hec Thomas are evasive.
