Hopalong CassidyHopalong Cassidy's Black Shirt - The color black, the traditional calling card of the "bad guy" in the western adventure became the color of choice for actor William Boyd when he played the frontier hero Hopalong Cassidy on the western adventure HOPALONG CASSIDY/NBC/1949-51.

In fact, in 1950 the demand for Hopalong Cassidy black outfits and other paraphernalia was so great that the US, for a time, ran short of black dye due to the popularity of the television program.

Another western personality who chose to wear black was gunfighter Paladin played by Richard Boone on the western adventure HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL/CBS/1957-63.
