Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961) - TV series

I just watched my first episode of this classic television western and really enjoyed it. It was a well written and performed show with star Steve McQueen showing great screen charm and a deft ability to turn a line of dialog into something more interesting than it actually had to be. 

My enjoyment might have been heightened (OK- it obviously WAS) because completely by chance the first episode I ever see stars the great Lon Chaney Jr. as a sheriff and Star Trek's Dr. McCoy Deforest Kelley as a mystery character. I really lucked out! If you want to see it for yourself it's titled The Empty Cell and is well worth the 25 minutes if you're a fan of the actors or TV westerns in general.
