Description by OLDIES.com:
In the untamed frontier, the law of the Pecos was enforced by one man alone - the irascible Texan, Roy Bean. Edgar Buchanan (Petticoat Junction) stars as the powerful judge who, assisted by his pretty niece, Letty (Jackie Loughery) and Deputy Jeff Taggard (Jack Buetel), dispenses justice with common sense backed up by a Winchester rifle and a dollop of good humor.
This 1956 television series is based on the true-life legend of the real Judge Roy Bean. Infamous in American folklore as "the hanging judge," Bean ran his courtroom from his own saloon in West Texas from about 1882 to 1902. Director John Huston would later explore this character in the feature film, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, starring a bearded and grizzled Paul Newman, in 1972.
