January is A Retrospective on Have Gun, Will Travel
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
At the Museum
Westerns were popular television fare in the 1950s and 60s. Have Gun, Will Travel was one of the most popular, ranking in the top three during much of its run. Starring Richard Boone as Paladin, it was on CBS from 1957 to 1963. Unlike many other “gunslinger” characters in Western shows, Paladin was highly educated and cultured. The show’s theme song, “The Ballad of Paladin” was a hit tune during that era.
January 23-25: The Trial, 3 Episode 38, June 11, 1960. Morgan Gibbs hires Paladin to bring his son in alive for the murder of his fiancee. He tries to but a bounty hunter is there first and shoots him in the back. Now Morgan wants Paladin to have a kangaroo style trial for his son’s murder.
