Can you match these movies to the TV Western with the same name?

Wagon Train, Rawhide and Gunsmoke were… movies?


While names like Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Wagon Train, Cheyenne and more are famous from their time on the small screen, these titles showed up on the big one as well. Sometimes a movie and a show shared a name and nothing else, other times there was at least some connection.

Here are ten movies that have the same names as classic TV Westerns. Can you guess which series each movie shares with?

Not bad, 7/10.
The first two were easy. Guessed on a lot of them. The only other one I knew for sure was #6, and that was the one with so glaring a hint(Nick RANDALL) that it brought down my ego a bit for knowing it. Also, I liked that movie(and pretty much anything with Rutger Hauer in it).
