Cimarron City Tidbits

This was a decent little Western with real bad luck. It was up against Have Gun Will Travel and Gunsmoke.

George Montgomery played Matt Rockford, the ex-mayor of Cimarron City, Oklahoma. John Smith was the blacksmith/sheriff. Audrey Totter was the proprietor of the boardinghouse.

Dan Blocker would leave this show and head straight fo the Ponderosa and Bonanza.


Dan Blocker died in 1972 after a surgery, John Smith in1995 of cirrhosis of the liver, and George Montgomery in 2000 of heart failure.
