Raymond Burr and The Story Behind Fort Laramie

Breaking Walls

This is a snippet from Breaking Walls Episode 91: The Hollywood Radio Western Renaissance (1954 - 1980).—————In 1956 public interest and advertising dollars had switched to television. Gunsmoke was an exception to the rule. Its radio success in the television era led CBS and Norman Macdonnell to launch a second adult western. It was called Fort Laramie.In its January 30th 1956 issue, Broadcast Magazine gave the series a glowing review, also noting that each episode cost $15,000 to produce. Much of Gunsmoke’s crew was involved, and the show had the same gritty realism and attention to historical detail.Fort Laramie was located on the eastern Wyoming prairie, about 100 miles from its current namesake city. Beginning in 1834 it was an important fur trade outpost, soon becoming a major stopover for those going west to Oregon. In 1849 the US government bought the site. For the next 40 years Fort Laramie would be a US Army post.Located near the North Platte and Laramie Rivers, the area was homeland to the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho. It also served as a station for the Overland Stage, and the Pony Express.For the lead role of Captain Lee Quince, Macdonnell chose Raymond Burr, a thirty-nine year old veteran of film, theater, and radio.

Episode 138 - Raymond Burr

Stars on Suspense (Old Time Radio)

Before he entered the small screen courtroom as Perry Mason, Raymond Burr was a big screen heavy and a busy radio actor. He played everything from killers to cops to cavalrymen, and he supported stars in their visits to "radio's outstanding theater of thrills." In the late 1950s, he moved from the supporting cast to the lead role on Suspense, and we'll hear two old time radio thrillers that aired just months before he went on the air as Mason: "The Paralta Map" (originally aired on CBS on March 10, 1957) and "Murder on Mike" (originally aired on CBS on July 28, 1957).

Raymond Burr's Secrets and Lies

The Incredible Inman's Pop Culture Potluck

When Raymond Burr died in 1993, he was eulogized around the world as the star of "Perry Mason" and "Ironside." But the obituaries were notable for what they didn't say as much as for what they did say. None of them mentioned that Burr was gay -- he had been closeted all his life. And most of them mentioned commonly-accepted facts about Burr -- that he was twice widowed, that he lost a son to leukemia and that he fought in World War II. None of that was true.
