I grew up with the OLD westerns, They all were great but "Have Gun Will Travel" was the best. Not only did Paladin know how to use his gun but only as a last resort. He would try to reason or talk his way out of a fight before resorting to gun play. As in all of the OLD westerns, The good won over evil, bullies were put in their place and the women was held in high regard!!
I believe that season 5 has some of the best story lines and acting of all the Have Gun Will Travel episodes (I have all 5 seasons)I also believe that Richard Boone was one of the best actors that Hollywood ever produced!!
Now when my grandson comes over for the weekends, We pop some popcorn and I pull out the Have Gun Will Travel DVDs, then we sit back and watch Paladin do his thing!
