Synopsis

Season Three of the rugged ABC western series Cheyenne was also the first season in which the series' familiar theme song ("Cheyenne, Cheyenne/Where will you be campin' tonight?), written by William Lava,was heard as a vocal over the opening and closing credits. Tall, broad-shouldered Clint Walker continues to deploy a minimum of talking and a maximum of muscle as versatile frontier drifter Cheyenne Bodie in the 19 episodes comprising Cheyenne's third season. As in previous years, the show was not originally offered on a weekly basis, but instead in rotation with another Warner Bros. produced. This time around, Cheyenne shared its familiar Tuesday night timeslot with a new western series, Sugarfoot, based on the 1954 Will Rogers Jr. movie vehicle The Boy From Oklahoma and starring Will Hutchins as gangly cowboy lawyer Tom "Sugarfoot" Brewster. Getting back to Cheyenne, its third season begins with "Incident at Indian Springs", directed by Thomas Carr of The Adventures of Superman fame. Later episodes of note include "Border Affair", in which Cheyenne saves a beautiful foreign princess from an arranged marriage with a would-be French despot living in Mexico; "Renegades", wherein the strong, silent hero tries to negotiate a tready between the Cavalry and the Comanches without stirring up old animosities; "White Warrior", which finds Cheyenne matching wits with a duplicitous wagonmaster who is leading a group of settlers into a trap; "Ghost of the Cimarron", with Cheyenne doing his best to dissuade a wounded outlaw leader from exacting a vengeance that will take the lives of countless innocent bystanders; and the season finale The Angry Sky", one of the few TV western episodes in which the protagonist faces death in a snowstorm. Among the prominent guest stars this season are Sebastian Cabot (Family Affair, Alan Hale Jr. (Gilligan's Island), Edward Byrnes ("Kookie" on 77 Sunset Strip) and Michael Landon (Bonanza). Inasmuch as the series was the 12th highest-rated American TV show during the 1957-58 season, there was no question that Cheyenne would return in the fall. The question was whether Clint Walker would return as Cheyenne. ~ Hal Erickson
