''Have Gun Will Travel'' is an American western television series that ran from 1957 to 1963, starring Richard Boone as the gentleman gunfighter Paladin, a West Point-educated former army officer who worked as a "fixer" of sorts, settling disputes and solving problems that would normally escalate into unnecessary violence, charging a standard fee of $1000. Paladin would attempt to solve the problem with minimal conflict using his cunning and education, but if the situation called for it his skill with both his fists and his gun would prove more than sufficient.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: This is in essence Paladin's defining moment. He thought he was the noble white hat hired by the well-intentioned local leader to fight off some bandits. It was only after he killed their leader that Paladin realized they were peaceful homesteaders and he was the hired muscle for the evil CattleBaron trying to shove them off their rightful homes. He soon decided to be a lot more careful about who he works for after that.

This would as often as not lead to the mistaken idea that Paladin was a professional killer a term he resented which would either result in people who wanted to avoid violence turning down his offer without hearing him out, or people who wanted a killer demanding he assassinate someone. In response, Paladin would either prove himself a good person, wait for the situation to become dire enough that his would be clients realized they had no other choice but to hire him, or turn to work for the innocent people his crooked client wanted him to kill. Another common mishap was that Paladin would often be mistaken as a "dandy" from the east before proving himself to be a BadAss. Equally common were episodes taking place after one of Paladin's jobs, where he stumbled upon an adventure quite by accident.

''Note'': Although GeneRoddenberry regularly claimed to have been the show's head writer, he wasn't - the show didn't have one - but he penned numerous episodes as a freelance writer. In fact, he has more writing credits on this show than any other series he worked on. (Yes, including [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries this one]].)
