Have Gun Will Travel followed the adventures of "Paladin," (no
other name is ever given) a gentleman gunfighter (played by Richard
Boone), who preferred to settle problems without violence, yet,
when forced to fight, excelled. Paladin lived in the Carlton Hotel
in San Francisco, where he dressed in formal white attire, ate
gourmet food, and attended the opera. In fact, many who met him
initially mistook him for a dandy from the East. When working, he
dressed in black, carried a derringer under his belt, used calling
cards with a chess knight emblem, and wore a conventional cowboy
ammunition belt and pistol holster with the same chess knight
symbol attached to the holster. Paladin was a former Army officer
and a graduate of West Point. He was a polyglot, capable of
speaking any foreign tongue required by the plot. He also had a
thorough knowledge of ancient history and classical literature, and
he exhibited a strong passion for legal principles and the rule of
law.Paladin — whose real name was never revealed — took
on his role by happenstance. To pay off a gambling IOU, he was
forced to hunt down and kill a mysterious gunman named Smoke, who
was played by Boone himself without his mustache and with
grey-white hair. Smoke gave the Paladin character his nickname,
facetiously calling him "a noble paladin."
In the 1972-1974 series Hec Ramsey, which we also
carry, set at the end of the 19th century, Boone stars as an
older former gunfighter turned early forensic criminologist. It is
ironic that Boone played the gunfighter looking for justice in his
first major tv role and his last. In fact, during a interview in
the '70's Boone stated that "Hec Ramsey was Paladin-just fatter".
Richard Boone was truly the Knight without Armor!
