Do you know which actor starred in these lesser-known 1950s Westerns?

Their West was just as wild as popular Westerns.

Up Next:

We all know that Westerns were a big deal in the 1950s, and you couldn't turn your television on without seeing some form of the West. There were so many shows produced specifically for the genre that it was impossible to watch them all. This resulted in some Westerns ending after a few seasons.

Some you probably never even heard about, but we want to know if you can guess which actor(s) starred in these lesser-known Westerns from that genre. Good luck!

  1. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western 26 Men?
  2. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western Trackdown?
  3. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western Annie Oakley?
  4. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp?
  5. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western Stories of the Century?
  6. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western The Deputy?
  7. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western The Range Rider?
  8. Which actor(s) starred in the 1950s Western Cowboy G-Men?

Do you know which actor starred in these lesser-known 1950s Westerns?

8 out of 8. Sat through a few of these. Trackdown probably is my favorite, but I'm biased since Robert Culp is one of my favorite actors. 26 Men is available for streaming...I liked the episode or two that I saw. The Deputy (co-created by Norman Lear, of all people!), I enjoyed the ones I saw. I have a DVD of Cowboy G-Men...may have watched one episode.

Had to guess on the one season "Cowboy G-Men". No doubt the sneaky staff threw that one
in as a "gotcha" trap.

Watched all of them faithfully expect “Cowboy G-men” . Never heard of it. Annie Oakley was my favorite which has played recently in the Chicago area. When my granddaughter started to watch with me, she thought my tv was broken because there was no color but those were the ‘good ole days’ of television. 🤠

5/8 I think I only knew 1, the rest were guesses. I’m pretty impressed with how I did since I’ve only heard of maybe 3 of these shows :D

An edit to my comment to answer the rest of MeTv’s question.

I’ve never actually seen a full episode of any of the shows listed except Trackdown. Just bits and pieces from YouTube. If you’re trying to get an idea of which western to start showing next I would definitely be willing to watch any of them, but I would probably especially be interested in Annie Oakley and The life and legend of Wyatt Earp.
Catch MeTVPlus, it runs many of these Westerns on the weekend, though Annie Oakley
airs nightly on the JLTV network. MeTVPlus blows away MeTV, I can't understand why this
site doesn't promote it. It's like all the shows we here have been asking for, the powers
that be decided to run on MeTVPlus.

8/8. I’ve seen them all. Cowboy G-Men was a little known series from the early 50s.

Here's the moment of truth. You got 5 out of 8
Whether you passed or failed, let us know if you've seen any of these Westerns! Which was your favorite? Well to be truthful I guessed on every single one. I'm 48 so I wasn't alive in the 1950's but I do love old school TV.

"Here's the moment of truth. You got 5 out of 8." Whether you passed or failed, let us if you've seen any of these Westerns! Which was your favorite? -----I've seen Trackdown, The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, and The Deputy. All on GRIT TV, which SPECTRUM doesn't carry, GRIT I mean.
