Description

Starring Andrew Prine and Earl Holliman, this short-lived series is considered a Western version of ROUTE 66. Frank Telford produced this 28-episode rodeo drama for Universal's TV arm Revue Studios. The directors include Alan Crosland Jr., Ted Post and, surprisingly, John Brahm. The scripts--including several by Alan Le May--are consistently intelligent if talky (this is a 50-minute drama, not action, series in spite of the rodeo setting). The guest "stars" include Ray Danton, Peggy McCay, James Caan, Victor Jory, Diane Ladd, Jerome Cowan, Ray Walston, Dan Duryea, Irene Hervey, Coleen Gray and Edgar Buchanan. (The Danton-McCay episode is really outstanding and is the highlight of the series.) Slim Pickens is a recurring semiregular and contributed the concept for one very solid script featuring Forrest Tucker.
