Bat Masterson (western, starring Gene Barry)

     (NBC Primetime, 1958 - 1961)

Theme 1: "Bat Masterson"

    [above is title as filed for copyright;
     BMI title aka: "Bat Masterson's Theme", BMI also incorrectly
     spelled the composer Havens Wray's name as "Ravens Wray".
     It is likely that David Rose or other ZIV-TV ghost writer
     authored this composition.
     The copyright would have been renewed in 1986, but a search of
     online copyright records revealed nothing by this title, and no
     results for "Ravens Wray", "Havens Wray" or "Bart Corwin."]

              [possible pseudonym of David D. Rose (ASCAP)], and
