Tagline: WITH HIS OWN HANDS HE PUT THE ROPE AROUND HIS NECK…and then defied the law to hang him! (original herald)
In The Westerner, laconic cowboy Dave Blasingame wanders the Wild West with his faithful dog Brown and the occasional companionship of pal Burgundy Smith through thirteen episodes of this popular 1960 TV series.
The Westerner was every bit as good as Peckinpah (who wrote some episodes, directed others) wanted it to be. Attention to historic detail was fabulous. Brian Keith had a John Wayne kind of quality that served the show admirably while that underrated character actor John Dehner played his sometimes sidekick, Burgundy Smith. Throw in the dog from Old Yeller (here called Brown, which was his real name) and some intriguingly anecdotal tales, all very anti-heroic, and you had a show that captured the escapades of an ordinary saddle tramp in a way that no other did.
The thirteen episodes are titled as follows.
2. School Days
4. Mrs. Kennedy
5. Dos Pinos
6. The Courting of Libby
8. The Old Man
9. Ghost of a Chance
10. Line Camp
11. Going Home
12. Hand on the Gun
13. The Painting
