A little bit of everything
I remember Hotel de Paree as having a little bit of everything. It ripped off "Gunsmoke" and "Have Gun Will Travel." It was the precursor of The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Andy Griffith Show. It was the coolest role that Earl Holiman ever played. His co-stars were his mirror rimmed hat and his pistol with the mirror on the hand-grip where Paladin's pistol had a knight chess piece. In so many of the other television westerns of the time such as Cheyenne, Sugarfoot, Bronco, and Maverick, the main character would drift into town, get unfairly accused of some crime the villain had done, expose the villain, kill the villain in a shoot out, and then mosey out of town despite the pleas of the townsfolk, including the pleas of the luscious daughter of the richest cattleman in town that he "stay on. We need you."

But in Hotel de Paree, Earl Holiman drifts into town without a cent to his name, and helped by his mirror rimmed hat, kills the bad guy in a high noon show down, and takes over ownership of the town hotel that is run by two French damsels. For the rest of the series he plays a character that is a cross between Matt Dillion and Rob Petrie.
