1955: When Militia meant “The Good Guys”

Did you hear it?

A real shocker. Embedded in popular culture, broadcast every week for four years, broadcast for years afterwards in reruns, now available on Youtube, the word “Militia” used as an honorific, not an expletive.

How far we have fallen in the past half century.

In case you wish to see the script here it is again in the Encyclopedia Of Television Series, Pilots and Specials 1937-1973, by Vincent Terrace
