It's Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre. I've posted before on how I didn't like westerns growing up. Bonanza and Gunmoke were one hour in color and sucked compared to early versions in black and white just like Andy Griffith did. It had a five year 150 episode run starting in 1956.

So I just saw this for the first time few weeks ago. It's really good and has the best actors guest staring in it by far. I've seen Edward G Robinson, Joan Crawford, Ralph Bellamy, James Garner, Walter Pigeon and Van Johnson.

Here's an impressive list of stars that appeared from the net

Agreed. They only seem to reair Have Gun Will Travel which had some episodes written by Gene Rodenberry. Sam Peckinpah directed a couple as well.
