Cimarron Strip is an Americanmarker Western television series that aired on CBS from September 1967 to March 1968. Starring Stuart Whitman as Marshal Jim Crown, the series was produced by the creators of Gunsmoke.

One of the first 90-minute Western series, Cimarron Strip was set in the real community of Cimarron City, Oklahomamarker. However, the program's creator took considerable poetic license and relocated the historical frontier town closer to the Indian Territory's panhandle for dramatic purposes.

Plot Outline

Across the Cimarron River, The Cherokee Outlet, the last free homestead land in America and for the last 10 years leased to cattlemen but now the farmers are expecting a decision by Washington to let them have the land they have been campaigning for.

Assigned to Cimarron City, Marshal Jim Crown, born in 1853, finds that there is no law in the town, the Sheriff resigned two days earlier, and that he will not receive any help from the Army in order to settle the ever increasing problems, and the news he brings that the cattlemen's leases have been revoked and a decision on the land is postponed indefinitely leaving Crown responsible for keeping law and order on the borderlands between the Kansas Territory and Indian Territory during the late 1880s.

Dulcey Coopersmith, born in England 1869, arrives in Cimarron City on the same train as Marshal Crown two months after her mothers death in Providence. Dulcey worked as an upstairs maid and travelled to Cimarron to be with her father she had not seen since the age of 5 only to discover he had been killed by a beer wagon.

Her father's partner was MacGregor, a Scotsman, who had let the Wayfarer's Inn fall into disrepair. He was a retired Colonel in Her Majesty's (Queen Victoria) forces.

Another friend of Dulcey's father was Francis Wilde, born in St Louis and trying to make his way in the world as reporter and photographer.
