Opening theme song from the classic western called Have Gun Will Travel
Video Rating: 4 / 5
I always thought his first name was “Wire”, because it said “Wire Paladin, San Francisco” on his card.
I used to watch this religiously.
The coolest tv intro ever!
When I was a kid, I used to see this in syndication on Channel 7 from Boston (then WNAC-TV), and after this intro they would cut to a commercial. Invariably, the first ad they always showed was the “Little Old Winemaker” for Italian Swiss Colony wines (we’re talking around 1964 – 1966, ballpark). Since then, I can’t think of this intro without my mind hearing the winemaker say “Italian Swiss Colony – fine wines since 1881.”
You have to face a Holy God on Judgment Day(Hebrews 9:27). He counts lust as adultery(Matthew 5:28) and hatred as murder(1 John 3:15). All liars will have their part in the Lake of Fire(Revelation 21:8). No thief will inherit the kingdom of God(1 Corinthians 6:9-11). Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved(John 14:6). YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND SUBMIT TO THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST TO BE SAVED! THERE’S NO OTHER WAY! There’s no second chance after death, so repent NOW! Proverbs 29:1
Gone are the days of shooting without killing … now they’re not happy unless there’s blood & guts all over the screen!
I loveed his stlye man did not play….Lol
It occurs to me if someone plays Palidin, he must have a special gun. “made to his specifications”
Pfft. Got nothin’ on Chuck Norris. ^_^
have gun will travel reads the card of a man…
On the hottest of days day Richard Boone sweated ice cubes. This guy played the coolest man with a Colt Peacemaker and a “don’t even think of screwing with me” attitude EVER.
i have to tell you; i fell in love with boone-and paladin-the character 21 years ago…my late husband was already a fan…and me and him used to watch the Have Gun Will Travel Reruns on a tv station when i was living in Charlotte, north carolina….i am still smitten with boone as paladin…it is ironic that my late husband was also a dead ringer for Richard Boone…when my husband was alive–people told him he looked like Paladin….

You should also post the opening to the radio version.
shamelessly stolen for the opening of the movie Magnum Force with Clint Eastwood.
Great theme by Bernard Herrmann!
Usually, the opening title would feature a snatch of dialogue from Paladin that was tied into the evening’s story…and it was often a threat of some kind: along the lines of, “If you don’t call off this feud right now, Grainger, I’ll make you sorry you ever sent for me in the first place. Then, you’ll see some REAL shooting…”
At :44, an announcer (usually Roy Rowan) originally added, “‘HAVE GUN- WILL TRAVEL’, is brought to you by…”
Outstanding that 50 years later, a few people still remember and understand the similarities.
