The notorious Shelton’s ride into the town of North Fork to take revenge on an elderly Marshal who is now crippled and working for Lucas McCain.

Westerns were a popular genre when THE RIFLEMAN premiered in 1958. First telecast on Dick Powell’s “Zane Grey Theatre” (CBS) on March 7, 1958, the pilot premiered on ABC in the regular television season on September 30 that same year. The show’s creator, Arnold Laven, developed THE RIFLEMAN’s core themes, which distinguished it from a crowded field of formulaic adventure programs. Set in New Mexico in the 1880s, originally, the main character was John—not Lucas—McCain, and he had no son. Also, the original premise had McCain packing a pistol, not a rifle. It was Laven who had the idea of making McCain a widower with a young son and making a customized Winchester rifle, not a six gun, the main protagonist’s signature firearm.
