Interesting Fact
20 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Have Gun Will Travel is the only show that started as a TV series.It is the only TV series to became a radio series after the TV series premiered. This episode of Have Gun Will Travel "High Wire" is the only episode during the run of the TV series that both actors who played Paladin were in the same show. We all know Richard Boone was Paladin on TV, what you might not know is John Dehner was Paladin on radio. I looked up John Dehner's data from IMDb. The irony here is John Dehner was the first choice by the producers for Paladin on the TV series. He wasn't able to take the assignment because he was contracted on another show at the time.

I have had the pleasure of watching the first three seasons of Have Gun Will Travel on the Lonestar channel in Canada. If Gunsmoke was the first adult western in TV then Have Gun Will Travel was the first sophisticated western on TV. Paladin was alway looking for a peaceful solution to the situations he was in. Violence was the last resort out of a difficult problem. Paladin the ever gentleman and world travel always came through in every episode.
