Cimarron Strip (CBS 1967, Stuart Whitman, Percy Herbert)

Cimarron Strip Stuart Whitman

The Cimarron Strip was the border region between the Kansas Territory and the Indian Territory during the late 19th Century.

Patrolling the vast area was the job of U.S. Marshal Jim Crown, who was stationed in Cimarron City. Marshal Crown had no full-time deputies but he often sought the assistance of Mac Gregor, a traveling Scotsman and Francis Wilde, a young photographer. Also seen as a regular in the series was Dulcey, a young woman from the East who had moved to the frontier to take over an Inn that had been run by her late father.

Cimarron Strip was an attempt by CBS to copy the success of NBC’s The Virginian (the first 90-minute Western series on TV) and like The Virginian, it centered largely on characters acted by guest stars.
