The end credits sequence is unique for this series. The background is the master shot of the climax. The music heard is neither Bernard Herrmann
's opening theme (also used during the closing titles for the first season), nor Johnny Western
's "Ballad of Paladin" (heard in all subsequent seasons and credited here regardless). It is from Fred Steiner
's score composed for this installment. See more
