Premise:
Adventures and dramas of a cattle drive.
"Rawhiude" was inspired by Charles Marquis Warren's 1958 movie CATTLE EMPIRE
which also featured Paul Brinegar as a short tempered cook and Steve Raines &
Rocky Shahan as cattle drovers.
#
Background:
"Rawhide" had several producers: Charles Marquis Warren (seasons 1-3),
Endre Bohem (whole season 4 & latter part of season 7), Vincent M. Fennelly
(seasons 5 & 6), Bruce Geller & Bernard L. Kowalski (early part of season 7)
and Robert E. Thompson (season 8).
I have read that Geller & Kowalski were replaced by Endre Bohem during
season 7 because of severe disagreements with Eric Fleming. [Which was
last episode produced by Geller & Kowalski ?] Rawhide:
#
'Rawhide' was the 4th longest running TV western behind
GUNSMOKE (20 years)
BONANZA (14years)
THE VIRGINIAN (8 years excluding THE MEN FROM SHILOH).

sung by
Frankie Laine (who also guest starred in episode #60)

'Move 'em out , head 'em up '

Rawhide
by Dimitri Tiomkin & Ned Washington
(As heard on the show)
Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’ Keep movin’, movin’, movin’,
Though they’re disapprovin’, Keep them doggies movin’ Rawhide!
Don’t try to understand ‘em, Just rope and throw and grab ‘em,
Soon we’ll be living high and wide.
Boy my heart’s calculatin’ My true love will be waitin’, be waiting at the end of my ride.
Move ‘em on, head ‘em up, Head ‘em up, move ‘em out, Move ‘em on, head ‘em out Rawhide!
Set ‘em out, ride ‘em in Ride ‘em in, let ‘em out,
Cut ‘em out, ride ‘em in Rawhide.
(full version)
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ Rawhide!
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin’ Rawhide! Rain and wind and weather. Hell-bent for leather
Wishin’ my gal was by my side.
All the things I’m missin’, Good vittles, love, and kissin’, Are waiting at the end of my ride

Chorus
Move ‘em on, head ‘em up Head ‘em up, move ‘em on Move ‘em on, head ‘em up Rawhide
Count ‘em out, ride ‘em in, Ride ‘em in, count ‘em out, Count ‘em out, ride ‘em in Rawhide!
Keep movin’, movin’, movin’ Though they’re disapprovin’ Keep them dogies movin’ Rawhide!
Don’t try to understand ‘em Just rope, throw, and brand ‘em
Soon we’ll be living high and wide. My hearts calculatin’
My true love will be waitin’, Be waitin’ at the end of my ride.
Rawhide!
Rawhide!
