Episode Description:

Stories of the Century is a 39-episode Western television series that ran in syndication through Republic Pictures between January 23, 1954, and March 11, 1955.

Jim Davis, who later played Jock Ewing on the CBS series Dallas, portrayed the role of fictitious Southwest Railroad detective Matt Clark. Davis also narrated each episode. Mary Castle co-starred in twenty-six episodes as Clark's attractive assistant, Frankie Adams. Castle left the program and was replaced by Kristine Miller who appeared in thirteen episodes as Margaret Jones, or "Jonesy".

In 1955, Stories of the Century became the first western to win an Emmy Award in the then category of "Western or Adventure Series". One of its competitors was The Roy Rogers Show.

The format of Stories of the Century was later modified by Dale Robertson as the narrator and star of NBC's Tales of Wells Fargo (1957-1962) and in the syndicated western series Pony Express (1959-1960), starring Grant Sullivan.

The series was the first television production of Republic Pictures, later CBS Paramount Television, which then used the name Hollywood Television Service. The episodes were filmed at the Iverson Movie Ranch in Chatsworth in Los Angeles County, California. The series also filmed some scenes at nearby Vasquez Rocks. In later rebroadcasts, the program was entitled The Fast Guns. It was released in France in 1962.
