Panhandle is a 1948 film directed by Lesley Selander. This Western marked the writing and producing debuts of Blake Edwards and John C. Champion. Champion later reworked the story as the 1966 Audie Murphy western, The Texican. The team of Edwards, Champion, Selander, and star Rod Cameron reteamed the following year for the western, Stampede. Edwards would later produce the police drama, City Detective starring Rod Cameron. The series holds the distinction of being the first syndicated television series.


The two producers raised $40,000 of the budget themselves, with Monogram providing $140,000.[1]
