- Luke Slaughter Of
- CBS started the year 1958 off with the
introduction on 01/29/58 of Frontier Gentleman.
That series lasted 41 broadcasts.
Near the end of the year, the network launched Have Gun, Will Travel
on 11/23/58, which continued for 106 programs.
In between, a very short series was offered and discontinued after
only 16 broadcasts, Luke Slaughter Of Tombstone.
Sam Buffington starred as Luke Slaughter, a Civil War cavalryman who
turned to cattle ranching in post war Arizona territory near Fort Huachuca. Each program had an authoritative opening statement:
"Slaughter's my name, Luke Slaughter.
Cattle's my business. It's
a tough business, it's a big business.
I got a big stake in it. And
there's no man west of the Rio Grande big enough to take it away from
me." Junius Matthews was
heard as Slaughter's sidekick, Wichita.
