Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Have Gun Will Travel" -
A Matter Of Ethics (Aired February 1, 1959)

The radio series debuted November 23, 1958. Have Gun — Will Travel was created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow and produced by Frank Pierson, Don Ingalls, Robert Sparks, and Julian Claman. There were 225 episodes of the TV series (several were written by Gene Roddenberry), of which 101 were directed by Andrew McLaglen and 19 were directed by the series star Richard Boone. The title was a catch phrase used in personal advertisements in newspapers like The Times, indicating that the advertiser was ready-for-anything. It was used in this way from the early 1900s. A form common in theatrical advertising was "Have tux, will travel" and this was the inspiration for the writer Herb Meadow.
