This popular American Western TV series provided a fictionalized account of the real-life marshal/gambler Bat Masterson. Masterson is depicted with satirical wit as a superbly dressed frontier lawman, generally outfitted in a black suit and derby hat, who is more inclined to bat crooks over the head with his gold-knobbed cane than to shoot them. Masterson roams the West, charming women and defending the unjustly accused.
