The initial The Three Mesquiteers film was adapted from the novel of the same name by western author William Colt MacDonald, the story of a trio of cowpokes who take up ranching in the 1920s West, but find their survival more dependent on their success with colts than cattle.
The series lasted so long, that the actors who played the leads changed several times over the years, as one star or the other was injured, lured away with bigger paychecks by a rival studio, or graduated to bigger budget films.
As a result the list of actors who were featured in the title roles reads like a roster of B-movie stars, including Ray "Crash" Corrigan, Bob Steele, Ralph (Dick Tracy) Byrd, Bob Livingston, Tom Tyler, and the Duke himself, John Wayne.
