When the slice of western Americana known as Rawhide (1959–62) first thundered onto television screens, the cattle drive’s odyssey was accompanied by Tiomkin’s music, Ned Washington’s lyrics and Frankie Laine’s resonant voice proclaiming ‘Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, though the streams are swollen, keep them dogies rollin’, Rawhide!’. The show made a star of Clint Eastwood as the drive’s ramrod, Rowdy Yates, who, along with the Tiomkin-Washington theme song performed by Laine, were the only ‘cast members’ to survive all 217 episodes. The song went on to be recorded by such diverse artists as Liza Minelli, The Jackson Five and Oingo Boingo. It was also sung by Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi in The Blues Brothers (1980), as well as Donkey (Eddie Murphy) in the animated Shrek 2 (2004).
