A Fistful of Guns (TV Series Westerns 1950's)
American TV Series Westerns were a mainstay of German TV in the late 1950's. Many Germans loved American Westerns and there were plenty around at the time, Gunsmoke (TV Series 1955–1975), Wanted: Dead or Alive (TV Series 1958–1961), Have Gun - Will Travel (TV Series 1957–1963), The Rifleman (TV Series 1958–1963), Rawhide (TV Series 1959–1965), Laramie (TV Series 1959–1963), Wagon Train (1957–62 and 1962–65), and Lawman (TV Series 1958–1962).
Just watching American TV Westerns, you are reminded how good these shows were written, how well they were acted and the sets, even though at times cheap, how they ultimately provided a more than reliable Western feel.
Frequent stars and character actors provided good action and fluid movement in the time allotted. Seeing them now, I am reminded how much I miss 1950's television.
Claude Akins, Eddie Albert, Martin Balsam, James Garner, Ernest Borgnine, David Janssen, Jack Elam, Burt Reynolds, Sterling Hayden, Cameron Mitchell, Jack Palance are just a few of the great actors that were on the show.
Of course, no one today will remember all these fine actors, which is a complete shame.
