Trivia

This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time during the 1967 to 1968 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). 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 cancelled. See more »

Goofs

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 »

I've caught the show once or twice on TBS (I think)--early Saturday mornings. Thing is--it's been edited down to a 60 minute show--so as to more easily sell it for syndication. There goes much of the dramatic complexity of it. Also--it isn't called 'Cimarron Strip'. It's 'Marshall Crown'--I believe. I even tried @ a video store near me--Audio Video Plus--& I found some of them. I think Stuart Whitman, himself, might own the rights these days.

I LOVED this series. Others were 2-dimensional, by comparison. Jim Crown was a former gunslinger, who had reformed. Sometimes, friends from the bad old days would show up--thinking they'd be cut slack. Wrong. Well--Crown WOULD try to dissuade them from illegal activities--to no avail. He'd end up having to kill his old friend--w/much remorse.

I remember reading that, when CBS cancelled the show, they issued a memo, explaining that the characters should be either good or bad--no shades of grey. In other words, the show was too sophisticated for it's time.
