Cimarron City is an American one hour Western television series, starring George Montgomery as Matt Rockford and John Smith as Lane Temple, that aired on NBC from 1958 to 1959 The name "Cimarron City" refers to a boom town in Logan County north of Oklahoma City. Rich in oil and gold, Cimarron City aspires to become the capital of the future state of Oklahoma, created in 1907.
Matthew Rockford is the son of the founder of Cimarron City as well as the mayor and an area cattle rancher. Lane Temple, the blacksmith, serves also as the deputy sheriff. He maintains the law amid the crooked schemes concocted in Cimarron City.
Audrey Totter played Beth Purcell, the owner of the boarding house. The episodes were supposed to rotate equally among Montgomery, Smith, and Totter. The writers, however, did not give Totter enough of the leads as promised, and she left the series. Cimarron City also featured Dan Blocker in his pre-Bonanza role as Tiny Carl Budinger, cast after the airing of the second episode as one of Rockford's ranch hands.
On March 6, 2012, Timeless Media Group released Cimarron City: The Complete Series on DVD in Region 1 for the very first time.
