| Father and son project
I guess the grind of doing those B picture westerns was getting a bit much for Joel McCrea because a lot of what he was doing was winding up on the small screen in any event.

So he decided he'd try television and what's more he'd bring his son Jody in on the deal. Jody would soon become a regular in those Beach Party films.

Maybe for luck because he had already done a good western movie called Wichita back in 1955 McCrea called his series Wichita Town. He played the town marshal and Jody played his young deputy.

Looking at the cast list you can see that Wichita Town was starting to build a cast of semi-regulars like Dodge City on Gunsmoke. Unfortunately the show was a bit too much like Gunsmoke and never broke out of the pack of a glut of westerns that were on TV at that time.

Wichita Town only lasted a season, but Joel McCrea's next project would be Ride The High Country, one of the greatest westerns ever made.
