A vintage treat
1 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A wonderful long forgotten show ( by most people anyhow ). Glencannon ran one series of 39 episodes in 1959 . The series was based on the very famous books by Guy Gilpatric. Glencannon is played by the great character actor Thomas Mitchell. Although he didn't fit Gilpatric's description of the character he made a great stab at the role.Mitchell dominates every single scene and he is in almost every one as well.Glencannon is a tight fisted rogue but he really is lovable.His adventures take him all over the world , courtesy of limited stock footage! The series was a delight to watch, the scripts were clever. One episode, The Rolling Stone featured Glencannon hoping to be the beneficiary of his 108 year old uncle, who seemed to go on forever.Outwitting two other relations he finds his sprightly uncle leaving all his money to a bird society.Watching him connive his way back into the will is very funny.Sadly these shows never seem to show up on air these days.More's the pity, I have five episodes and judging by them I would love to see the series again.I still have vivid, pleasant memories of my family glued to the TV every Monday following the adventures of Glencannon and his crew.Patrick Allen was the first mate, he was amused by Glencannon and often collaborated with him on one of his get rich schemes, the rest of the crew were somewhat more wary.

Come back to these shores Glencannon, we need you!
