Sherif of Cochise

Stan Jones, the author of the song "Ghost Riders in the Sky" created this 1956 television show about the Sheriff of Cochise County Arizona in present day 1956. Sheriff Frank Morgan, played by John Bromfield, drove a brand new DeSoto station wagon, and in many episides series creator Stan Jones played the part of Deputy Harry Olson. The real Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona in 1956, W.J. 'Jack' Howard, was paid as a technical adviser for the show. Filmed at the Desilu studios, after two years as Sherif of Cochise County, the character was 'promoted' to U.S. Marshall so that stories could be created from the whole state of Arizona instead of being confined to Cochise County, and the show was re-named 'U.S. Marshall' for the final two years of production.
