This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30- 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to its competition. On ABC, it went up against "Batman" (1966), "The Flying Nun" (1967) and "Bewitched" (1964) and on NBC "Daniel Boone" (1964) and "Ironside" (1967). In the 1960s and 1970s it was a common practice for the networks to rerun old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for several years. Such was the case with this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled. See more »
The real Cimarron Strip is the panhandle of Oklahoma. It is very flat plains and not the mountainous or desert terrain shown in the series. See more »
One of the finest westerns ever shown on television! Marshall Crown, the hero, was true, gritty, keen-thinking. The villains were believable,often complex, not the "cardboard cutouts" featured in modern TV shows.
The scenery was breath-taking, especially the opening sequence of Crown riding his horse across a broad vista of stark beauty, as the theme song, the BEST EVER for a TV western, soars majestically through the horse's dusty wake.
A wonderful supporting cast -- Dulcey, MacGregor, and Francis --added just the right touch to Crown's character, "softening or hardening" his edge as the situation demanded. Sadly, it lasted only one season. They don't make 'em like this any more!
