Audie takes on the small screen .......

6/10
Author: revdrcac from United States

Audie Murphy appeared in a number of enjoyable westerns in the 1950's before trying his luck in TV with this role as a cowboy detective. The acting and casting in this series were well-executed. However, the writing and erratic story lines were problematic in this series.

Audie Murphy was perfect for this role, which had been originated in a movie of the same name. Murphy made the role his own, and seemed to be very serious about seeing this series succeed. Eventually, he returned to the silver screen, seemingly disillusioned by his TV experience.

This series is worth a look, but does not compare with his superior films of the 1950's.

Audie Murphy, hero and talented actor

9/10

If you are a fan of westerns or of anything featuring Audie Murphy then you will love watching any of these episodes.

While the series has some flaws, the stellar acting of Audie Murphy makes it well worth while.

His pleasant easy going manner and yet his quiet toughness make him a western hero unlike any other I ever saw on the screen. He is never over powering and, unlike John Wayne, was a hero in real life who served his country with great honour and distinction.

There are a few episodes available through different sites. take a look and you will not be disappointed.
