An aging lawman in 1901 Oklahoma employs the latest crime detection techniques to solve the murder of a homesteading couple while overcoming the skepticism of his young, college-educated police chief. —Anonymous

In 1901, former lawman Hec Ramsey decides to take a job working in the newly-formed Oklahoma police department. When he arrives, the Chief of Police wonders what Hec can contribute, but the stagecoach Hec arrived in was robbed, and a couple was killed with all signs leading police to believe it was a murder-suicide. That’s when Hec reveals he’s been studying new methods of solving crimes, like fingerprinting and ballistics. He uses these methods to disprove the couple’s murder-suicide and to apprehend the stagecoach robbers. —rcs0411@yahoo.com

The series was one of the first television Westerns set in the early 20th century,[1] at a time when viewer interest in the old West was waning. Two contemporary series with a similar setting was Nichols, starring James Garner and Bearcats! starring Rod Taylor and Dennis Cole; the latter was set in 1914.

Producer Jack Webb described Hec Ramsey as “Dragnet meets John Wayne” and critics picked up on that. The scripts balanced authentic “modern” investigative methods of the 1900s with action and adventure.

Richard Boone portrayed Hector “Hec” Ramsey, a former gunfighter turned lawman, with a keen interest in the emerging field of forensics. Hec replaced his “gunfighter” rig with a cut-down Colt revolver – “Faster draw, good at short range. Use a rifle for long” that echoed modern detectives’ guns – but his most important tools included fingerprinting equipment, magnifying lenses, which enabled him to determine the perpetrators of crimes with greater accuracy.

The series follows Ramsey after he accepts the position of deputy police chief in the fictional town of New Prospect, Oklahoma.

In the series’ pilot, “The Century Turns”, set in 1901, Hec meets New Prospect’s chief of police, Oliver B. Stamp (Rick Lenz), a young, inexperienced lawman who needs help and after some initial friction, the two men develop a working relationship. They are frequently accompanied by a colorful local doctor, Amos Coogan (played by frequent Webb performer, Harry Morgan, who was also a regular on The Richard Boone Show).

Despite good ratings, the series was canceled after two seasons, following disagreements between Boone and Universal. Douglas Benton and creator Harold Jack Bloom were the producers; Jack Webb was an executive producer.

Among the guest stars in the series’ 10 episodes, were: Claude Akins, Rory Calhoun, Jackie Cooper (in “Dead Heat”), Angie Dickinson, Steve Forrest, Kim Hunter, Rita Moreno, Sheree North, Ruth Roman, Kurt Russell (in “Scar Tissue”), Stuart Whitman (in “A Hard Road to Vengeance”) and Marie Windsor (in “Mystery of the Green Feather”).
