Politically incorrect... sort of
25 March 2005 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

"...starring John Russell and Chick Chandler!" went the introduction to this "cheapie" and (I believe) syndicated series. As a ten year old I loved the freebooter aspect of the heroes. Russell was solid as always, a typical fifties hero except he was not (re-)fighting World War 2 but was off in exotic places, mostly Africa, and hiring out his gun and talents to the highest bidder. Chandler was the obligatory sidekick as I recall. Pause with me a moment and consider this: could 21st century television support a positive view of hired mercenaries? Fifty years ago there were different sensitivities. But were they always worse? Or better? John Russell's character represented courage, self-determination, chivalry and freedom. It is odd how such qualities seem sorely lacking in so many of today's role models. But few of them are "Soldiers of Fortune"!
