Have Gun—Will Travel follows the adventures of Paladin, a soldier of fortune turned hired gunfighter, played by John Dehner. Paladin prefers to settle problems without violence, yet when forced to fight, he excels. It's 1875, and Paladin lives at the swanky Carlton Hotel in San Francisco, where he dresses in formal wear, eats gourmet food, attends the opera, has a Chinese valet named Hey Boy, and enjoys the company of beautiful women. When working as a gun-for-hire, he dresses in all black, uses calling cards, and wears a holster decorated with a chess knight emblem. This symbol refers to his name and his occupation as a champion-for-hire. One of radio's best-loved Westerns, Have Gun—Will Travel aired on the radio from 1958 until 1960 and was a successful offshoot of the highly rated television show. Episodes include "Strange Vendetta," "The Road to Wickenberg," "Ella West," "The Outlaw," "The Hanging Cross," "No Visitors," "Helen of Abajinian," "The Englishman," "Three Bells to Perdido," "The Teacher," "A Matter of Ethics," and "Killer's Widow." Three of the episodes were written by Gene Roddenberry. Hey Boy is played by Ben Wright.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A gourmet and connoisseur of fine wine, fine women, and Ming Dynasty artifacts, Paladin would quote Keats, Shelley, and Shakespeare with the same self-assurance that he brought to the subjugation of frontier evildoers.” Peter Orlick of the Museum of Broadcast Communications

Story

An Honorable Gun Fighter

Very enjoyable stories. The episodes are well written, with three by Gene Roddenberry, famous creator of TV's Star Trek. The music adds a nice touch, with the opening track sounding suspenseful and the ending sounding very Western. Paladin is an honorable hero, who “doesn’t shoot unless forced to,” who puts his life at risk to shield the innocent, and sometimes donates his fees to them. The stories often convey a moral. John Dehner does a good job as Paladin, but even better is Ben Wright, the voice behind the Chinese valet, Hey Boy. It is amusing to hear the commercials that aired with the original show, especially the products' prices that would astound us today. I would definitely listen to these stories again.
