STEVE DONOVAN – WESTERN MARSHALL
Syndicated (30 min.)
Premiered: September 24, 1955 Last Aired: June 16, 1956
Douglas Kenned starred as Marshall Steve Donovan who with his trusty partner "Rusty" (played by Eddie Waller) maintains law and order in the west in the 1890's.
“Steve Donovan”, although cheaply produced, made Top Ten ratings in several markets. You knew you were in for great western action the moment the series hit your screen. Kennedy stepped out from behind a boulder, drew two six-guns, fired three shots, flipped his ‘45s from one hand to another and fired three more in rapid succession! Then came the stern voiced announcer—“Lashing out of the pages of American history come the exciting tales of the early western frontier. A primitive land torn by primitive conflicts and boiling with the feuds and lawless strife of frontier days”.
