Episode Description:

Wanted: Dead or Alive is an American Western television series starring Steve McQueen as the bounty hunter Josh Randall. It aired on CBS for three seasons from 1958-1961. The black-and-white program was a spin-off of a March 1958 episode of Trackdown, a 1957-1959 western series starring Robert Culp. Both series were produced by Four Star Television in association with CBS Television.

The series launched McQueen into becoming the first television star to cross over into comparable status on the big screen.

McQueen's character of Josh Randall is a Confederate veteran and bounty hunter with a soft heart. He often donates his earnings to the needy and helps his prisoners if they have been wrongly accused. Randall carries a shortened Winchester Model 1892 carbine, called the "Mare's Leg," in a holster patterned after "gunslinger" rigs then popular in movies and television. Randall had the ability to draw and fire this gun with blazing speed, as fast as, or in many cases much faster than, his adversaries with handguns that were much smaller. There were actually two Mare's Legs used in the series. One had a round lever compared to the second gun which had a more oval shape lever.

For several episodes in 1960 Randall had a sidekick named Jason Nichols, a former deputy sheriff turned bounty hunter, (played by actor Wright King). Randall and Nichols partnership ended after Nichols killed three men much to the chagrin of Randall who felt the men could have been taken alive.
