Starring Raymond Burr as Captain Lee Quince,
Fort Laramie shared many of the same actors, writers, and production staff as
Gunsmoke. The program emphasized realism and historical accuracy. Considered one of the greatest radio Westerns, it lasted less than a year, just as Burr was being cast as Perry Mason on TV.
This premiere episode of Fort Laramie originally aired on January 22, 1956.
