Television Western Players, 1960-1975

TV Westerns were in their heyday during the 1950s in the U.S.A.
Every kid wanted to be a cowboy and explore the Ol’ West, fight Indians and bad guys and clean up small towns for decent folk.

Most 1950s Westerns were pretty cut and dry; good guys versus bad guys and the good guys always won.

Things began to change in the 1960s. ‘Adult’ Westerns became increasingly popular and would remain so through the mid-1970s.

Ironically as audience sophistication grew the number of TV Westerns dwindled.
