Have Gun — Will Travel is an American Western series that was produced and originally broadcast by CBS on both television and radio from through The television version of the series was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons, and it is one of the few shows in television history to spawn a successful radio version.

Of the episodes of the television series, 24 were written by Gene Roddenberry. Andrew V. McLaglen directed episodes, [3] and 28 were directed by series star Richard Boone. This series follows the adventures of a man calling himself " Paladin " played by Richard Boone on television and voiced by John Dehner on radio , taking his name from that of the foremost knights in Charlemagne 's court. Like many Westerns, the television show is set in a nebulous time period, after the Civil War. The radio show states the year in the opening of every episode.

The season 5 television episode, "A Drop of Blood", gives the specific date of July 3, The title is a variation " snowclone " on a cliche used in personal advertisements in newspapers like The Times , indicating that the advertiser is ready for anything. It has been used this way from the early twentieth century. A trope common in theatrical advertising at the time was "Have tux, will travel", and CBS has claimed this was the specific inspiration for the writer Herb Meadow.

The television show popularized the phrase in the s, and many variations have been used as titles for other works, including Have Space Suit—Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein published in Paladin prefers to settle the difficulties clients bring his way without violence, but this rarely happens. When forced, he excels in fisticuffs. Under his real name, which is never revealed, he was a dueling champion of some renown. His permanent place of residence is the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco , where he lives the life of a successful businessman and bon vivant , wearing elegant custom-made suits, consuming fine wine, playing the piano, and attending the opera and other cultural events.

He is an expert chess player, poker player, and swordsman. He is skilled in Chinese martial arts and is seen in several episodes receiving instruction and training with a Kung Fu master in San Francisco.

He is highly educated, able to quote classic literature, philosophy, and case law, and speaks several languages. When out working, Paladin changes into all-black Western-style clothing. His primary weapon is a custom-made, first-generation.

He also carries a lever action Marlin rifle strapped to his saddle, and a Remington derringer concealed under his belt. Paladin gives out a business card imprinted with "Have Gun Will Travel" and an engraving of a white knight chess piece, which evokes the proverbial white knight and the knight in shining armor. A closeup of this card is used as a title card between scenes in the program.

The one other major semiregular character in the show is the Chinese bellhop at the Carlton Hotel, known as Hey Boy real name Kim Chan or Kim Chang : in the first season in the episode called "Hey Boy's Revenge", the character Hey Boy is sought by Paladin under the name Kim Chan, which is written on a piece of paper and shown on screen.

As the episode continues, Hey Boy is referred to verbally five times as Kim Chan and then on the sixth incident Paladin states Hey Boy's name as Kim Chang and thereafter he is referred to as Kim Chang every time. No explanation is given for the name change. Hey Boy is played by Kam Tong. Garlund television series. Originally, each show opened with the same second visual. Over a slow four-note-repeat backbeat score, a tight shot of Paladin's chess knight emblem centered in a black background is seen, before the view widens to show the emblem affixed to Paladin's holster, with Paladin in his trademark costume seen from waist level in profile.

Then as he draws his revolver from the holster, the four-note-repeat backbeat fades to a light, almost harp-like strumming. He cocks the hammer, and then rotates the gun to point the barrel at the viewer for 10 seconds, often delivering a line of dialogue from the coming episode, after which the pistol is uncocked and holstered briskly. As the weapon is reholstered and the view tightens to show only the chess knight, again, the four-note-repeat backbeat returns.

Boone's name and the show's title is accompanied by a four-note "stinger" that overshadows the four-note-repeat. The "stinger" is roughly the same as that heard when Paladin's business card is flashed on screen in almost every episode. The words fade away after those 5 seconds leaving only the chess knight emblem against the black background, and the four-note-repeat fades out.

This opening then fades out and the show fades in on its opening scene. In a later version of the opening sequence Seasons , there is a long-range shot, with Paladin in a full-body profile silhouette, and he fast-draws the revolver, dropping into a slight crouch as he turns, pointing at the camera.

After the dubbed-over line, he straightens as he shoves the firearm into his holster. This silhouette visual remained for the run of the series. Due to the networks not always airing episodes in the order they were filmed, the omission of the voice-over dialogue was inconsistent for some of the episodes, as seen in the opening titles.

Season 6 did have the most opening titles without the voice-over dialogue, especially as the season progressed, again as seen when the episodes opened. Unlike many westerns, entire episodes were filmed outdoors and away from the Old West street set on Irving Street just below Melrose Avenue , the home of Filmaster television production company.

Filmaster was located across the street from, later becoming part of, Paramount Studios' backlot. The area is now enclosed in the independent Kingsley Productions studio lot encompassing a city block. Beginning in season four, filming locations were often given in the closing credits.

The program's opening was a four-note motif composed and conducted by Bernard Herrmann. For the opening theme, Herrmann reused a short sequence he had previously composed for the movie On Dangerous Ground , starring Robert Ryan and Ida Lupino. The "Have Gun — Will Travel" theme and fragments of incidental music also used in the television series are featured in a chase scene across snowy fields; at the mark of the film, the actual "Have Gun — Will Travel" opening theme is played in recognizable form, although the scoring is slightly different than that heard in the better-known television version.

In the first season the closing song was a reprise of the opening theme. In syndication, the first premise episode concludes with the Johnny Western ballad. The rest of the run of the first-season episodes play a reprise of the opening theme. In the second season the song was the only closing music. In the third season a new lyric was added to the five line " The Ballad of Paladin " making it six lines long. In —, the final season, the song's lyrics were cut to four lines, the original fourth and added sixth being dropped.

This occurred because the production credits for writer, producer and director were pulled from the closing credits to appear over the opening sequences. However, in the Season 6 episode " Sweet Lady in the Moon " Episode 26, , the ballad was played complete over the closing credits.

Johnny Western has sung a fully recorded version, opening with the refrain and including a second verse never heard on the television series. The television show was nominated for three Emmy Awards.

Harry Julian Fink is one of the writers who created Dirty Harry the opening title and theme scene of the Dirty Harry sequel Magnum Force features a Paladin -like sequence of a handgun being slowly cocked and then finally pointed toward the camera, with a potent line of dialogue.

Sam Peckinpah wrote one episode, "The Singer," which aired in Other notable writers who contributed an episode include Gene L. It was one of the last radio dramas featuring continuing characters and the only significant American radio adaptation of a television series. Unlike the small-screen version, in this medium there was usually a tag scene at the Carlton at both the beginning and the end of the episode. Initially, the episodes were adaptations of the television program as broadcast earlier the same week, but eventually original stories were produced, including a finale a.

There were three novels based on the television show, all with the title of the show. The first was a hardback written for children, published by Whitman in in a series of novelizations of television shows.

It was written by Barlow Meyers and illustrated by Nichols S. The second was a paperback original, written for adults by Noel Loomis.

Robertson and published in by Collier-Macmillan in hardback and paperback, is based on the television episode "Genesis" by Frank Rolfe.

This novel is the only source wherein a name is given to the Paladin character, Clay Alexander, but fans of the series do not consider this name canonical. Dell Comics published a number of comic books with original stories based on the television series. In , it was announced that a movie version of the television series would be made. John Travolta was named as a possible star in the Warner Bros. However, the film was never made.

In , it was announced that a Have Gun — Will Travel movie starring rapper Eminem is in production. However, the film does not hold an official confirmed release date. Paramount Pictures extended an month option on the television series and planned to transform the character of Paladin into a modern-day bounty hunter. Eminem was expected to work on the soundtrack. In August , it was announced in several venues that David Mamet was developing a reboot of the television series for CBS.

In the television series Maverick , season 2, episode 16, "Gun Shy", Marshal Mort Dooley, the marshal of Elwood, Kansas, comments that a lot of strange people have been passing through his town lately, specifically referring to "that gunslinger who handed out business cards.

In the second-season DVD, two episodes are mislabeled. In , a rodeo performer named Victor De Costa won a federal court judgment against CBS for trademark infringement , successfully arguing that he had created the Paladin character and the ideas used in the show, and that CBS had used them without permission.

For example, at his rodeo appearances he always dressed in black, he called himself the "Paladin", he handed out hundreds of business cards with a chess piece logo and the phrase "Have gun will travel", and he carried a concealed derringer. A year later, an appellate court overturned the lower court ruling on the basis that the plaintiff had failed to prove that there had been likelihood of confusion in the minds of the public—a necessary requirement for a suit over trademark infringement.

De Costa died at the age of 83 before he could receive the award. In , on the basis of De Costa's established claims, a Rhode Island federal judge blocked the redistribution of the Paladin show by Viacom.
