The Deputy was an American western series that aired on NBC from September 1959, to July 1961 which starred Henry Fonda as Chief Marshal Simon Fry of the Arizona Territory and Allen Case as Deputy Clay McCord, a storekeeper who tried to avoid using a gun. I guess he could hit the bad guys with a ledger book?
|For someone so anti-gun, he seems to wear his belt low , like a gunfighter.|
This wasn't as popular as another NBC series of the day, THE SLACKER, about a ditch digger who tried to avoid using a shovel.
