Rustlers, bank robbers, and their own wild schemes: a band of Texas Rangers keeps getting in and out of trouble, under the jaundiced eye of Captain Parmalee. Written by
Neville Brand didn't get along too well with some of the other members of the cast and in the second year of the show, quit. Claude Akins replaced him. Too bad, because as highly as I thought of Mr. Akins as a versatile actor, Neville Brand's Reese Bennett character was key to the show's success. It seemed as if the producers recognized a need to juice up Laredo in its second year by adding Robert Wolders to the cast. It didn't work very well, in my opinion. The original light-hearted formula of Peter Brown and William Smith teasing and playing tricks on Neville Brand was the thing that made Laredo stand out from other Westerns of that time.
