Charles S. Dubin,
A gunrunner loses his cargo near a small coastal Sudanese town so he's stuck there. When a woman hires him to raid a sunken ship in the shark-infested waters, he sees a chance to compensate for his losses. He's not the only one.
Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, CA. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product mined in Death Valley.
This average western from the 1960's featured a good cast but unremarkable and routine writing. Dale Robertson excelled in these type of brave underdog roles, but he could not rise above this series' script limitations. Gary Collins and Ellen Burtstyn were fine, but went on to better roles in later years.
The one episode that really stands out in the series featured the great character actor Strother Martin. He always brought a dignified,wry humor to his roles and did so again in this show.
While not the best of western TV shows, it had potential that was never quite realized........ the train never really "left the station".
