During season 1, the theme song's lyrics start near the end of each episode's final scene and continue through the line "A man of steel the stories say." The cast and crew credits appear as the line "But women's eyes all glanced his way" is heard. Starting with season 2, several lines were dropped in the version sung during the closing credits, See more »
The "derby" Gene Barry wears is incorrect. If you look at real photos of Bat Masterson you'll see that the brim on Gene's hat is too large. They tried to roll the sides more to make it seem smaller, but it still just looks like any old cowboy hat with a rounded crown. See more »
A sucker for 60's westerns, I wrapped a belt around the piano bench, set it in front of the TV and "rode" it with my western heroes; Roy, Yancy (with his collection of hide-out derringers), Lone Ranger (the original radio Lone Ranger, Brace Beemer, lived just up the road from me)Cisco Kid and Pancho, Wild Bill Hickock and Jingles, El Fago Baca, Mavericks (Bret, Bart and cousin Beau from England)I watched them all and this was one. I assume Bat's cane had a sword in it, most do, and I definitely recall one episode where he warned the town of an impending Indian raid by firing his "cane rifle" at the church tower bell - he was too injured to ride down in time. My question is, does anyone know what happened to this prop? Were there several? A Sword cane, a rifle cane? Modern westerns make at least 3 copies of any significant prop, i.e., Quigley's rifle. One for photos, one for dropping in the dirt, one for star to keep as memento. There were 4 James Bond Aston-Martins(Sean Connery didn't get any of them). Anyway, I was just curious about the cane and if it was functioning, or they just faked it for the film.
