Contrary to popular belief, Clint Walker did not take his shirt off in every episode. In fact, of the 107 "Cheyenne" episodes in which Walker appeared, he only was seen bare-chested in 25 of them. The breakdown is as follows: in Season 1, six such episodes, in Season 2, six such episodes, in Season 3, seven such episodes, in Season 4, four such episodes, in Season 5, zero such episodes, in Season 6, two such episodes, in Season 7, zero such episodes.

Cheyenne fans should check out Clint's website. He has lots of photos for sale and will autograph them as well. The series was great in that Cheyenne's dedication to fairness and truth never waivered. It was a good example for kids unlike today's shows. Clint Walker deserves a lot of credit for making this show a well deserved hit. It was interesting that the producers never provided him with a "named" horse like was done in a few other westerns. He always rode "a horse." He sometimes traded them or lost them, just never named them or seemed to care much about them. I was disappointed the show didn't provide him that opportunity; guess there were so many shows the writers couldn't be distracted with a single horse story line. In any event, it's a small complaint about a truly great TV western.
