Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, California. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product formerly mined in Death Valley.
The 78 half-hour episodes of the television western "26 Men" were
originally broadcast during the 1957-59 television seasons. The series
was produced by Russell "Lucky" Hayden, the same guy who played
Hopalong Cassidy's sidekick Lucky Jenkins in many of Hoppy's western
films during the late 30's and early 40's. Much like its counterpart,
"Tales of Texas Rangers", the series focused on the historical
adventures of the Arizona Rangers who operated in Arizona while it was
still a territory. Some names were changed but the idea was to recreate
actual cases from the files of the Rangers.
The Arizona Rangers were created in 1901 by the Arizona Territorial
Legislature to deal mostly with rustlers along the Mexican border.
Modeled on the Texas Rangers the group was originally limited to one
company of 14 men, in 1903 the force was increased to 26 men (hence the
Many of the 26 were Spanish-American War veterans of Teddy Roosevelt's
Rough Riders unit. They were expert horsemen, trackers and marksmen.
Because the force was small and their mission was big the territory
made sure they were equipped with the best horses and the most modern
weapons. And they apparently were legends in their own time, widely
publicized and conspicuous. And so successful that local law
enforcement lobbied hard to have this elite force disbanded.
In the television series Tris Coffin plays Captain Tom Rynning (the
actual name of the unit's second commander) and Kelo Henderson plays
Clint Travis. "Coffin" was appropriately named as his main claim to
fame was an incident a couple years earlier on the CBS anthology series
"Climax". Coffin was playing a corpse during a scene and suddenly just
stood up during shooting and walked out of the frame. He had thought
the scene over and the camera turned off. For this he was nationally
nicknamed "dead man walking". The DVD issue includes the following 10
