Comment on Frontier TV western series
10 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recall this series on BBC-TV in 1958-59. I have a very vague memory of this series content (with a few exceptions) but I vividly recall the opening music and scene. Covered wagons are moving into the distance. I saw it in monochrome, and I think someone must have been using a strong red filter, since the sky is very dark with brilliant white cirrus cloud - rather after the style of Ansell Adams. I recall one episode of a family attempting to cross Death Valley. I think this was an episode called The Big Dry. Another involved trappers who have a feud and involved knife fights where both of the combatants fight while biting at the ends of the same piece of cloth. I think this is the one called Out from Texas, although, I am certain it was originally called Out from Taos. But whatever it was called, it happened that way..... moving west.
