Theme Song / Opening Credits
There were 4 seasons and 112 episodes of The Big Valley. We have not completed an episode guide for this show yet.
Peter Breck could draw a gun incredibly fast. “Wildest Westerns Magazine” stated that he could draw his gun in 16/100 of a second. That made the character of Nick Barkley the fastest draw in television history.
Of all the Barkleys, Victoria was the only one to never be shot during the run of the show. Heath was shot the most, followed by Nick, who was shot twice in one episode.
The Big Valley was the only western series to focus on a strong female lead.
The jailhouse set was the same one used on Gunsmoke.
Heath: Boy Howdy! I’ve got blisters in places I didn’t even know I had places.
Victoria Barkley: When Nick is pushed, he pushes back with everything he has.
