Ed Wood Jr's long lost TV pilot.

Few bio's of Ed Wood Jr mention this TV pilot shot in color. I saw this episode on a video of "TV Rarities". The show was to be about the adventures of a special lawman nicknamed the "Tucson Kid", played by Tom Keene. There really isn't much to say about this show, even though it was written and directed by the infamous Edward D. Wood Jr. While the show looks pretty crude by todays standards, Ed Woods attempt at a western TV series does not look any better or worse than any other kiddie western show from the early days of TV. In fact, considering the kind of stuff that sold on T.V. in the early fifties, I'm a little bit surprised this show didn't sell. In the cast is former cowboy star Tom Tyler.
