Man Without A Gun 1957-1959

Post by Tracy » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:07 pm

"Man Without a Gun" is an American western television series that ran from 1957 to 1959.

Set in the town of Yellowstone in the then Dakota Territory during the 1870s, the series starred
Rex Reason as newspaper editor Adam MacLean.

With no gunplay or violence, MacLean brought miscreants to justice through his Yellowstone Sentinel.

The theme to "Man Without A Gun" provided the viewer with the main character's credo (see text below video):

Adam MacLean: This is Yellowstone, Dakota Territory: jumping off place for The Badlands.
It's a small town, but it's growing - maybe too fast, maybe too violently.
It's got law and people who respect it... and of course, those who don't.
We've got a newspaper. It's not big, either, but it will be. I run the newspaper.
That's my name on the window - Adam MacLean.


Mort Mills (Marshal Frank Tallman) costarred as the lawman who intervened when
the "pen" proved not to be "mightier than the sword".

The program is considered to have been unique because it showcased MacLean's moral ethics
and common sense in bringing outlaws to justice. The show was also used as a schoolroom
to teach the youngsters of the 1950s about decency and the differences between right and wrong.

I was a tad bit young, but I don't recall this one at all. Thanks for sharing, Tracy.
