“Wanted: Dead or Alive” was a popular series that lasted for three seasons from 1958 to 1961, and catapulted the young Steve McQueen into international stardom. It was the story of a Civil War veteran with a sawed-off Winchester (lovingly referred to as the “Mare’s Leg”) who makes a living as a bounty hunter in the Wild West of the 1870s.
“Wanted” had a great deal going for it besides its star. Up to then, the “bounty hunter” was thought of as a sort of “bottom fishing” character who would go to any lengths to “get their man”. He was portrayed as a heartless man who was in it only money. However, McQueen brought something special and new to the character. He always showed compassion, and in many episodes, he would give some, if not all, the reward money to the victims, or families in need.
“Wanted” also had a great supporting cast of future stars. Such movie greats as James Coburn (who subsequently worked with McQueen on “The Magnificent Seven”, and “The Great Escape”), Warren Oates, Richard Farnsworth, as well as soon-to-be household name TV stars like De Forest Kelley and Michael Landon made some of their first “splashes” on “Wanted”.
Many great directors got their “chops” wet on this series as well, including Richard Donner, and many of the writers went on to great things, including becoming directors themselves, including Frank Gilroy and Tom Gries.
