Description by OLDIES.com:
his popular American Western TV series provided a fictionalized account of the real-life marshal/gambler Bat Masterson. Masterson is depicted with satirical wit as a superbly dressed frontier lawman, generally outfitted in a black suit and derby hat, who is more inclined to bat crooks over the head with his gold-knobbed cane than to shoot them. Masterson roams the West, charming women and defending the unjustly accused.

Bat Masterson was surely one of the most unusual lead characters of any American western program. As played by Gene Barry in the character's eponymous half-hour series - which ran from October 1958 through June 1961 - Masterson was a gambler-cum marshal who loved women and hated violence, often preferring to defend himself with a cane instead of a gun. Episodes depicted him traveling through the Old West, seeking adventure and female companionship. This sprawling box set features over 60 episodes of the original series, including RUN FOR YOUR MONEY, CATTLE AND CANES, SIX FEET OF GOLD, THE TREASURE OF WORRY HILL, CHEYENNE CLUB and many more.
