Lawman is a western tv series originally telecast from 1958 to 1962 featuring John Russell as Marshal Dan Troop and Peter Brown as Deputy Johnny McKay. Set in Laramie, Wyoming, the action often centered on the Birdcage Saloon, owned by Lily Merrill. The half hour show often was of high quality due to the camaradarie of the cast members, guest stars, and several experienced directors.

    Speaking of recycled scripts, John Russell gets to act out the same story on two different shows. The script featured a retired gunfighter that let's the hero know that he can't use his shooting hand anymore. He goes to the widow of his former business partner and offers her money that rightfully belongs to her. The widow's son refuses and challenges the gunfighter to a shootout. The gunfighter refuses to back down, while the hero tries to talk him out of it. On Cheyenne (1955), Russell played the retired gunfighter. On Lawman, he played the hero trying to talk the gunfighter out of the shootout.
