Man Without a Gun is a western television series which ran on 20th Century Fox from 1957 to 1959.
Set in the town of Yellowstone near Yellowstone National Park in the then Dakota Territory during the 1870's, the program starred Rex Reason as newspaper editor Adam MacLean, who brought miscreants to justice without the use of violence or gunplay but through his Yellowstone Sentinel. Marshal Frank Tillman intervened when the pen proved not to be "mightier than the sword".
The program is considered to have been unique because it showcases MacLean's moral ethics and common sense to bring outlaws to justice. The show was also used as a schoolroom to teach youngsters of the day about decency and the differences between right and wrong.
