In the Corner with Dan Hughes


May 30, 2011

Have Gun, Will Travel was on television for over a year before a radio version was created.  John Dehner, who had just finished a year as Englishman J.B. Kendall in Frontier Gentleman, was chosen to play the radio version of Paladin.

Paladin was a gun for hire, but somehow he always managed to fight for the good.  A good guy dressed all in black - not a common sight on the western scene.

This episode,  Death of a Young Gunfighter, originally aired on March 15, 1959.
