Have Gun Will Travel TidbitsPaladin (Richard Boone) is a West Point educated gentleman with a taste for fine wines and foods. Based at the Hotel Carlton in San Francisco, he was a man for hire.
Paladin would do anything for those in serious need. He read the newspapers from across the country and sometimes sent his calling card to those he felt might use his services as gunfighter, bodyguard or anything else that his skills could accomodate. His fee to those who could pay was $1,000.
While at the hotel, he dressed the dandy. But for work, he was a man in black.
He carried a Colt .45 revolver in a holster with a white knight (the Paladin) on it and a small derringer under his gunbelt.
