Gene Barry played Bat Masterson in this half-hour western series from the late 50s. Bat was a lawman, scout, gambler -- you name it and Bat did it; usually with class and style. He'd rather outwit the bad guys than get in a gunfight with them. That way he'd still be looking good for the ladies. Bat liked women and most of them liked him right back.
Bat Masterson was an actual real live person back in the Old West, but I'm sure the producers of this show took a lot of liberties with the facts. Big deal -- facts just get in the way of a good story.
