Sam Peckinpah (Wild Bunch) wrote the pilot episode of The Rifleman (1958-63) and helped set the tone for the digitally remastered series.
Set in the post Civil War New Mexico, Chuck Connors starred as rancher Lucas McCain, a widower and single parent trying to raise young son Mark (Johnny Crawford) in peace. Unfortunately, a week wouldn’t go by without some bad guys making trouble calling Lucas and his tricked out Winchester into action.
