Trivia

This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30- 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to its competition. On ABC, it went up against "Batman" (1966), "The Flying Nun" (1967) and "Bewitched" (1964) and on NBC "Daniel Boone" (1964) and "Ironside" (1967). In the 1960s and 1970s it was a common practice for the networks to rerun old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for several years. Such was the case with this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled. See more »

Goofs

The real Cimarron Strip is the panhandle of Oklahoma. It is very flat plains and not the mountainous or desert terrain shown in the series. See more »

User Reviews

 
Excellent writing, direction, and stories. Stuart Whitman very good.
12 April 2008 | by bfm_1017See all my reviews

I recently discovered this show in reruns on Encore Westerns. I honestly never saw this show in its first run, and don't know how I missed it. Some of the best stories I've seen in Westerns, well directed, Stuart Whitman is very believable as Marshal Crown, tough and honest to a fault. I don't know how shows like this didn't last, yet Gunsmoke was on forever it seems. The Encore copies are around 1 hr 17 minutes each, so they appear uncut, and without commercials. The 1 1/2 hr format allows the story to be well developed and to have multiple twists. I am quite genuine in saying shows like this are non existent anymore. The prints are not great, especially when compared to Big Valley or Bonanza which appear to have been restored. Now I wish someone would run "Lancer", "High Chaparral", "Branded", "Have Gun Will Travel" among other old westerns.

Cimarron Strip is top drawer among westerns right up with my personal favorite - "The High Chaparral".
