Forgotten but not bad
15 May 2004 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

This 1958 series from ZIV got lost in the sea of other 30-minute filmed black and white westerns that deluged TV in the late 1950s. However, it has many points of interest, including a good cast--- three stalwart, very different heroes, with the stories successively featuring each in turn. The authenticity of the series is also impressive. Firearms are correct for roughly 1870, and properly single-action, and there seem to be almost no sets, as such. Most action takes place outdoors, but indoor sequences seem to take place in real rooms in real buildings. Jan Merlin is, as he was on TOM CORBETT, SPACE CADET, the most interesting member of the trio. It's as if a time machine had taken Roger Manning back to 1870.
