Overland Trail (western, starring William Bendix)

    (NBC Primetime, 1960)

    [This short-lived series featured the former star of
     "The Life of Riley" (which see) as superintendent of
     a stage coach line. Perhaps its short life was the result
     of this odd casting of a sitcom star in a western, or 
     due to the unintended competition with a similar series
     which debuted the same year -- "Stagecoach West" on ABC.]

Theme: "Overland Trail Theme (from Overland Trail)"
