Hoby Gilman was one of the very few TV (or movie) western heroes who did not carry a Colt .45 revolver. Rather, he carried a .44 caliber 1877 Smith and Wesson New Model 3 revolver. See more »
Following the end credits, this statement appears in small, uppercase type: "The story is true. Names, firms and locales have been changed to protect relatives and descendants who may be living." See more »
This show while not as well known as bonanza, gunsmoke, rawhide, or the rifleman may be the best of the classic TV westerns. In fact, as much as I like Richard Boone as a show I believe Trackdown is superior to have gun will travel. In thirty minutes you generally have a complex story, well acted, with some moral ambiguity to it. Of course Robert Culp makes the show work in a way few others could, but all in all one of the few fifties shows that still holds up sixty years later.
