Looks like I may have found one that folks are not quite as familiar with. I thought the “calling card” clue would give it away since it was a prominent part of the show’s opening for awhile. Nevertheless, here it is! Its…

Have Gun — Will Travel


Richard Boone starred in this classic Western. Paladin was his name, and mercenary gunslinger/fixer was his game!  People hired him to solve their problems for them. And although Paladin’s charge was steep, typically $1000 US per job (lot of money back then), he was always willing to provide his services for free (i.e., pro bono) to poor people who needed his help, a real Western Robin Hood, you might say. Like many westerns, the television show was set during an uncertain period after the Civil War.


And here’s an interesting little side bit. Of the 225 episodes of the television series, 24 were written by Gene Roddenberry, best remembered for creating the STAR TREK universe that has spawned six TV spins offs over 30 TV seasons. IN FACT, a brand-new series, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is coming in June 2017 for all you hard-core Star Trek fans!

Did you guess it??? 😀

Whew! Glad that’s out of the way… On to I for the April A to Z Challenge!

An architect, returning home after a hard, hard day, parks his car in an old ghost town in order to rest for a while before continuing on. Suddenly, in the middle of the night, something wakes him: a strange object… He spends the rest of the next two seasons trying to convince anyone who’ll listen — especially the government — of what he saw.

The series ran for two seasons, 1967 and 1968, and fans were very unhappy at the way the series ended, basically leaving everything hanging and folks having to use their imaginations. Were YOU???

What do you think? Can you…

(Btw, if you know the answer, please keep it to yourself so as not to give it away. Stick a smiley face on your comment instead. Thank you so much!)



(Just a quick note. If the title of the show is preceded with the word “The”, it will NOT be included in the name.)
