I used the opening image of the TV western, Wagon Train, and added the series early main regular characters above the title... Terry Wilson as Bill Hawks, Robert Horton as Flint McCullough,Ward Bond as Major Seth Adams, and Frank McGrath as Charlie Wooster, all in grayscale with cowboy hats.
Wagon Train is an American Western series that aired 8 seasons: first on the NBC television network (1957–1962), and then on ABC (1962–1965). Wagon Train debuted on September 18, 1957, and became number one in the Nielsen ratings. It is the fictional adventure story of a large westbound wagon train through the American old West, from Missouri to California. Its format attracted different famous guest stars per episode, as travelers or as residents of the settlements they encountered.
The show initially starred supporting film actor Ward Bond as the wagon master (replaced upon his death in 1960 by John McIntire) and Robert Horton as the scout (subsequently replaced by Robert Fuller).
The series was inspired by the 1950 film Wagon Master directed by John Ford and starring Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr., and Ward Bond, and by the 1930 early widescreen film The Big Trail directed by Raoul Walsh and starring 23-year-old John Wayne in his first leading role as the buckskin-clad scout and featuring Ward Bond in a prominent supporting role.
