In 1966, Four Star Productions syndicated four of its half-hour Western series under the title of "The Westerners." They were "Black Saddle," "Johnny Ringo," "Law of the Plainsman," and "The Westerner." The series had a new opening credits sequence featuring Michael Ansara, Peter Breck, Don Durant, and Brian Keith. Keenan Wynn appeared in new opening and closing host segments. The original closing credits were retained.
