Wyatt Earp ('55-'61) ~ Wyatt Earp was a Marshall, first in Kansas and later in Arizona. The sage is based loosely on fact, with historical bad guys and good guys, ending up with the famous shootout at the O.K. Corral. It was an enjoyable series, especially because of the history. Starred ~ Hugh O'Brian, Jimmy Noel, Ethan Laidlaw, and Brick Sullivan to name a few. It was one of my father's favorite programs!!
