Trivia

Guy Williams appeared in five episodes towards the end of the fifth season as Ben's nephew, Will. Pernell Roberts wanted to leave the show and Williams was set to become a full time cast member in the sixth season. A storyline was written in which Adam Cartwright was to get married and leave the ranch. However, Roberts decided late in the season to stay for one more year so Will was written out of the show. The three other lead actors were unhappy with the Will storyline and would have rather continued without a fourth lead. When Roberts left after the sixth season, the series did continue with just the three leads. See more »

The rumors of Guy Williams death
24 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Guy Williams makes the first of several appearances as visiting nephew Will Cartwright who's something of a roving vagabond. The problem is he's roving with the wrong crowd at late and in fact Lorne Greene gets a wire from a neighboring town that Williams has been killed in a gunfight.

Like Mark Twain though, the rumors of Will Cartwright's death are greatly exaggerated. He's playing dead because Arch Johnson wants him dead real bad and Williams switched identities with one of Johnson's gang. It's not just Williams being six feet under that Johnson wants. He's got an item on him that Johnson wants back very badly.

Williams stayed on for a few episodes and he and Pernell Roberts have a spirited rivalry in the future for the hand of one Virginia City girl. It's Williams who gets her later and rides into the sunrise with her. Otherwise she would have been another female fatality that always happens around the Cartwrights.
