The Tall Man, set in the New Mexico Territory of the 1870's, starred western stalwarts Barry Sullivan (The Road West, Harbormaster) and Clu Gulager (The Virginian, Once an Eagle) in fictionalized tales of the adventures of two famous, and infamous, characters out of the real Wild West. Sullivan plays Sheriff Pat Garrett, whose honesty and forthrightness led to his nickname, "The Tall Man," and Gulager takes on the role of William H. Bonney, better known as Billy the Kid, a young gunfighter with a penchant for trouble.
Joining the boys for fun in the first season are many guest stars, including Denver Pyle (Garrett and the Kid), Leonard Nimoy (A Bounty for Billy), Claude Akins (Night Train to Tularosa), Marianna Hill (And the Beast), Iron Eyes Cody and Andy Clyde (McBean Rides Again), Harry Carey, Jr. (One of One Thousand), James Coburn (The Best Policy), and Martin Landau (Dark Moment).
The second season also features many guest stars, including Patricia Barry (Where's Sylvia?), Edgar Buchanan (The Judas Palm), George Kennedy (Trial By Hanging), Vic Morrow ( Time of Foreshadowing), Andy Clyde (Substitute Sheriff), Martin Landau and Slim Pickens (The Black Robe) and many more.
