[show]In early episodes of the series, Paladin's trail clothes were a rich midnight blue. This nicely complimented Richard Boone's blue eyes--they registered as black on the black-and-white film of the day. There was a shirt redesign from a buttoned front to a V-neck and the colors of both changed to black around that time. Whenever Paladin's clothes were referred to in dialogue, he was always called "the man in black", whether he dressed in blue or black.
- Paladin's horse was Rafter. Richard Boone selected that name. Through the six-year run the horses were called Curley, Frisco, Rudy, Mexico and Rafter.
- The building across the street from the Carlton Hotel is the San Francisco Banker's Exchange.
