    Cheyenne has his Colt (or Great Western) in his holster so he's trying out the S&W for some other reason than for carrying.

    Have Gun - Will Travel (1957–1963)

    Trivia

    While many television series are taken from radio shows, the radio show "Have Gun - Will Travel" with John Dehner as Paladin appeared after the television show.

    In early episodes of the series, Paladin's trail clothes were a rich midnight blue. This nicely complimented Richard Boone's blue eyes but they registered as black on the black and white film of the day. There was a shirt redesign from a buttoned front to a V-neck, and the colors of both changed to black around that time. Whenever Paladin's clothes were referred to in dialogue, he was always called "the man in black", whether he dressed in blue or black.

    Regarding the name "Paladin", it comes from early European "paladino", "palatine" referring to a knightly, heroic champion who fights for a noble cause. "Paladin" can also refer to a military leader, trusted and relied on by his King. Both the "knight" (a "warrior") and "military leader" speak to the character's (Paladin's) military background....
    Which was, in turn, part of the series Story Line: Professional gunfighter Paladin was a West Point graduate who, after the Civil War, settled into San Francisco's Hotel Carlton where he awaited responses to his business card.

    Paladin's name was never revealed in the television or radio series.

    There were three Have Gun - Will Travel novels. In one of them, Paladin was called Clay Alexander. Source: "A Knight Without Armor, A Biography of Richard Boone" by David Rothel.

    Paladin always carried a Derringer, a pocket gun concealed under his belt. "Derringer" is the misspelled last name of Henry Deringer, a nineteenth century maker of small pistols.

    Paladin's horse in the final season was named Rafter. Richard Boone selected that name. Throughout the six-year run, the horses were called Curley, Frisco, Rudy, Mexico, and Rafter.



    Paladin's suite at the Carlton Hotel is number 314.

    On the DVD covers, the season number corresponds to the number of rounds of ammunition shown, one through six, the same as the six shooter Paladin carried. Had the series gone more than six seasons, this would have proved to be problematic as Paladin only carried a six shooter.



    Of the two hundred twenty-five episodes, twenty-four were written by Star Trek (1966) Creator Gene Roddenberry. DeForest Kelley, a minor cowboy star is his own right, and Doctor McCoy ( Bones ) of Star Trek fame, appeared in one episode.

    Parts of season one, episode eleven, "The Colonel and the Lady", was filmed on sets used for Gunsmoke (1955). The Long Branch Saloon was minimally redecorated to stand-in for a saloon Paladin visits in a Nevada mining town. Shots of people walking the streets of the town were also taken from Gunsmoke.

    A man named Victor da Costa sued C.B.S.; he'd been using the name Paladin, and been giving out card with "Have gun, will Travel" on them long before this show even aired for the first time. He sought redress from the show makers for appropriating his character without his consent. After thirty years of legal battles, he was able to block the re-release of the show on TV. The final verdict came on April 28, 1991, and Da Costa won the case, but by then he was already dead, aged 83.

    That's a Remington in his holster, not a Colt or GW.

    Season 1, Episode 2. Julesburg
    Cheyenne was helping the family of a gun salesman killed in a cattle stampede. Smith & Wesson firearms were the brand, and Cheyenne was required to shoot the center of an ace of spades held by Smitty, played by LQ Jones.

    Clint had a pair of GW's,one for back up when the other one got broke,several yrs ago I re-built one of them for Charlie Aldridge who was a friend of Clint's,Clint had given it to Charlie along w/the holster & belt,the other one was sold @ auction.Charlie introduced me to Clint about 20 yrs ago & I would spend some time w/him over the yrs @ different film festivals that we would attend.While I had the gun & holster here I had a picture taken of me wearing the gun & rig & it fit me well enough so that I was able to do a little fancy gun handling wearing it.After Charlie died about 4 or 5 yrs ago a prominent GW collector friend of mine bought it & it's now living in Tx.

    Perhaps the "S" added to the serial numbers of some of those movie and TV guns was done by Stembridge, the famous firearms prop supplier ?

    Could be. I do not know if there is an S on the gun itself, but definitely on the description card. ???

    Here are a couple of examples of how the Stembridge guns are marked with the large "S" above the serial number. A few have been observed that were also marked on the side of the frame with the S.

    Posted elsewhere; here's my PALADIN inspired Holster and Belt. This set was made by Sandy Morrissey - who hand stippled the belt to look like elephant hide! The Eagle is one of my Coast Guard cap devices.
