Remembers presents the Clint Walker Tribute Rifle which is a fitting tribute
to an American who represents the highest ideals of the Old West. This
collector firearm is decorated with artwork honoring Clint Walker and his
legendary western career.
Clint Walker stands tall among
the great Hollywood cowboys, and not just because he is six-feet tall.
Through his groundbreaking role in the television series Cheyenne,
Clint Walker set a high standard for Western heroes. The series was one of
the original "adult westerns" and helped to establish westerns as a favorite
of television viewers in the late 50's and through the 60's. On screen, he
was always the man to look to in times of danger. Clint Walker kept a cool head and
could be counted on to act swiftly and decisively. When faced with
injustice, he'd risk everything to make certain things were put right. Off
screen, Clint Walker has always had the same quiet strength and moral center as his
Millions of fans fondly remember Clint Walker best from
his days as "Cheyenne Bodie," who was the orphan son of a couple
killed on a wagon train journey to the frontier. Raised from infancy to the
age of 12 by Cheyenne Indians and later adopted by a frontier family,
Cheyenne Bodie came to represent the highest ideals of both cultures. This
left him uniquely suited to the role that fell to him in every episode;
defender of the oppressed and champion of justice. Cheyenne Bodie was
the intrepid frontier scout who wandered from town to town and job to job,
landing in a dangerous situation every week. These weekly episodes
consistently ranked Cheyenne as one of the most popular shows on
television. Cheyenne was an hour-long "adult Western" that debuted
in September 1955 and enjoyed immense popularity for a total of eight season
and 108 episodes, with Cheyenne going on to become Warner's #1
Clint Walker is a huge man who despite
his size, conveys a sense of gentleness. His voice is deep, but he speaks in
soft tones. Every move Clint Walker makes conveys the image of a man whose great
strength takes a back seat to his kind heart. A few adjustments had to be

feet just to make for a fair fight, and many a leading lady had to stand on
a stool or a box to kiss Clint Walker for the cameras.
Walker was successful in a number of films, including the Doris Day comedy "Send Me
No Flowers, " Frank Sinatra's "None But The Brave," the classic "The Night
of the Grizzly" and the blockbuster WWII drama, "The Dirty Dozen." Audiences
appreciated Clint Walker's serious approach to cowboy roles and could sense
his genuine interest in the freedom and challenges the West presented for
