Wild Bill Hickok Tidbits -“Wait for me, Wild Bill!”

The real Wild Bill was more lowdown than this TV portrayal. This version, which also ran on radio, made WIld Bill Hickok (Guy MAdison) into a first rate hero by just not mentioing the part where the real guy was a gambler and marshal.

Both Madison and Devine parlayed this into a string of popular movies.
