A secret agent in the old West!

Okay, this gets kinda confusing but...Wayde Preston played Christopher Colt, government agent and son of the gun inventor. Preston, like many defecting Warner Brothers stars, leaves the show for awhile and Donald May plays Sam Colt, Jr., his cousin. Then Preston returned to the series in 1960. WHEW!

Passings

Wayde Preston died in 1992 of colon cancer

Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans

1957 Syndicated
Black and White - 30 minutes - 39 episodes

Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans Cast

John Hart as Nat 'Hawkeye' Cutler
Lon Chaney Jr. as Chingachgook

Okay, so maybe this is an Eastern and not exactly a Western. But it had guns, action and Indians so I'm counting it.


Loosely (very loosely) based on the James Fenimore Cooper novel, this is the story of of Hawkeye, a white trapper and scout, and his Indian blood brother, Chingachgook, a good name to type once, copy and paste thereafter.

The show was filmed in Canada.

Passings

Lon Chaney Jr. died in 1973 of beriberi and liver failure.
