The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp

One of the earliest adult Westerns to air on television, The Life and Times of Wyatt Earp starred Hugh O'Brian in the title role as the legendary lawman. The series ran on ABC from 1955-61. The series was different from a lot of westerns at the time in that the episodes ran more or less in chronological order as it depicted events in the life of the title character.
