Lawman: A Companion to the Classic TV Western Series (hardback) By Bill Levy, Will Hutchins (Foreword by) Cover Image
By Bill Levy, Will Hutchins (Foreword by)


The Warner Bros. western series Lawman starring John Russell, Peter Brown, and Peggie Castle originally broadcast on ABC-TV airing 156 new episodes between September 1958 and June 1962. As played by steel-eyed John Russell, Dan Troop is a no-nonsense marshal who has little patience for outlaws or hypocrites, but will stand up for underdogs and outsiders. He also displays a warmer side with his mentoring of his young deputy (Peter Brown) and, beginning in the second season, in his relation- ship with Peggie Castle's beautiful Lily Merrill.

Lawman: A Companion to the Classic TV Western Series, the first book to focus fully on this show, re-familiarizes veteran viewers and introduces new fans to this exceptional television western and its three-dimensional leads. It features a Foreword by Will "Sugarfoot" Hutchins, a discussion of why Lawman stands out from other television westerns, a history of its creation, episode summary capsules, a "Recollections" chapter with recent interviews of Lawman alumni, and photos covering the show's four years.

Bill Levy is the author of John Ford: A Bio-Bibliography, Beyond the Beach: The Wit and Wisdom of Nevil Shute, and Lest We Forget: The John Ford Stock Company as well as numerous columns, articles, and stories on films, television, literature, and contemporary America. He resides in Sarasota, Florida.
