HAVE GUN- WILL TRAVEL premiered 55 years ago, and ran for 6 or 7 seasons. I was too young to remember it. I've never sought it out as I have other retro TV because I don't much care for westerns. However I have just watched the first 2 episodes and I must say I am very impressed. The second episode, guest starring Charles Bronson, would be Emmy nominated fare today. The half hour format makes for tight plotting and writing, which is why I love shows like Peter Gunn and the first 39 episodes of Danger Man so much.
This was the only TV show to spawn a successful radio drama version. Paladin was voiced by William Conrad.
