Black Saddle Tidbits

Clay Culhane (Peter Breck) had been a gunfighter but he lost his brothers in a shootout. This caused him to give up his violent ways and become a circuit lawyer who carried his law books in his saddlebags.

This half hour Western set in Latigo, New Mexico Territory during the post-Civil War years, included Russell Johnson as the Marshal and Anna Lisa as the proprietor of the Marathon Hotel.
