[a railroad man has insulted the portrait of Lily Langtry]
Judge Roy Bean: Who are you to call that lady chunky, you low-down, moth-eathen tenderfoot! Get out of my store you saddlebums! Never show your faces in Langtry, Texas again, or I'll throw you in jail for insulting the fairest woman west of the Atlantic!

This one is a classic ....
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Edgar Buchanan, a former dentist, went on to become a mainstay of western films/TV for decades. Long before he became famous as "Uncle Joe" on Petticoat Junction, he starred in this excellent series. Here he tackled the role that was later performed by Paul Newman on the silver screen.

This color series featured Buchanan as the legendary Law West of the Pecos. Complete with a 7-inck thick law-book (and creative sentencing) he was a cantankerous yet fair arbiter of frontier law.Guest stars included western favorites such as Russell Hayden and Lash La Rue ! Several episodes of this gem of a show are now available on DVD sets

Seek them out, or he may throw the book at you !

Recommended to all fans of vintage TV.
