TV Westerns 1 0f 5

 

The TV Western reigned supreme in the Fifties and Sixties. There were about 120 of them depending on what you consider a Western.
The earliest TV Westerns were mostly for kids, typified by Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy, and Gene Autry. In the mid-Fifties Gunsmoke begin its 20 year run and was the first successful "adult" Western. The airwaves then were filled with Westerns, such as, Wagon Train which debuts in 1957 along with Maverick and Have Gun Will Travel.
The TV Westerns became more and more “adult”.   No longer did the hero kiss his horse and ride off into the sunset. Now he got to kiss the girl too!
By the Sixties, the Westerns, led by ratings winner Bonanza, begin broadcasting in color. The Virginian, High Chaparral and
Big Valley are typical of Sixties TV Westerns.
But the world was changing.  Sometimes even good guys seemed to wear black hats. Or maybe there is such a notion as too much of a good thing. By the end of the Sixties, the TV Western had just about disappeared.
