Bat Masterson is an American western television series which was a fictionalized account of the real-life adventures of dressed-up dandy, gambler and lawman Bat Masterson (Gene Barry). Masterson roams the West charming women and defending the unjustly accused. His primary weapons were his wit and cane – which he used more to disarm opponents rather than kill them off with his gun. The black derby, fancy decorative vest, black jacket, and elegant pearl-tipped cane were his trademarks. “Bat” is a nickname for Masterson’s first name, Bartholomew.
