About The Virginian

‹See Tfd› The Virginian (slightly repackaged as The Men from Shiloh in its final year) is an American Western television series starring James Drury, Doug McClure and Lee J. Cobb, which aired on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) television network from 1962 to 1971 for a total of 249 episodes. It was a spin-off from a 1958 summer series called Decision. Filmed in color and with memorable theme music, The Virginian became television's first 90-minute Western series (75 minutes excluding commercial breaks). Immensely successful, it ran for nine seasons—television's third longest running western, behind Bonanza at 14 seasons and 430 episodes, and Gunsmoke at 20 seasons and 635 episodes. The series is loosely based on The Virginian: Horseman of the Plains, a 1902 western novel by Owen Wister. Grammy Award winning composer Percy Faith composed the popular theme.
