Virginian

By Wikipedia

The Virginian was a Western-themed television series which aired on NBC from 1962 to 1971. It was unique in that it was the first Western to air in 90-minute installments each week.

Loosely based on the Owen Wister novel, the series revolved around a ranch hand, played by James Drury, who went by the name The Virginian; his real name was never revealed in the nine years the show was on the air. The series took place in Medicine Bow, Wyoming, and revolved around The Virginian's quest to maintain an orderly lifestyle for the ranch he worked on, which was called Shiloh Ranch. Other key characters included Trampas (played by Doug McClure) and Steve Hill (played by Gary Clarke).

The ranch had four owners throughout its run: Judge Garth (played by Lee J. Cobb), the Grainger brothers (played by Charles Bickford and John McIntire) and Colonel Alan McKenzie (played by Stewart Granger).

In the final year, when Col. McKenzie took over Shiloh Ranch, the name of the program was changed to The Men from Shiloh.

Your Memories Shared!

I loved the music and the opening scenes where James Drury was galloping along. I had lots of favorite episodes, the Virginian took a hurd of cattle to Canada was one. It was on so many years the ranch owner kept changing and there were great guest stars, William Shatner, Robert Redford, Leonard Nemoy, Eric Braeden. Steve was my favorite ranch hand, but I liked Randy Boone and LQ Jones. I think I can even remember David Hartman and Tim Matheson. Hallmark Channel is currently showing episodes on Saturday.
