STORIES OF THE CENTURY starring Jim Davis

In 1955, Stories of the Century became the first western to win an Emmy Award in the then category of "Western or Adventure Series".  Jim Davis portrayed the role of fictitious Southwestern Railroad detective Matt Clark. Davis also did narration for each episode. Clark and his female associates traveled the American West weekly seeking to capture the most notorious badmen.

Though fictional, the black-and-white program uses newspaper accounts and some records of the American West to enforce historical accuracy. Various episodes focus on Clark and Adams or Jones seeking to capture notorious bad men, such as John Wesley Hardin, Billy the Kid, Sam Bass, the Dalton Brothers, the Younger Brothers, and Johnny Ringo, depicted as the outlaw Johnny Ringgold. Fess Parker, Myron Healey, and Robert Bray appeared as the Dalton brothers, Grat Dalton, Bob Dalton, and Emmett Dalton, respectively.
