Rip-roaring Rodeo in Africa.
jonesy74-1 from United States
9 October 2005
Square-jawed, super tall Chuck Connors takes on Africa. One of Ivan
Tors' series based on Tors' own 1967 movie, "Africa, Texas Style"
starring Hugh O'Brien.
A retired British Commander hires Texas Cowboy Jim Sinclair (Chuck
Connors) to help him teach the Masai how to domesticate wild animals
As a Chuck Connors fan, I was glad to see him back in action after a
bad run on "Branded," an unusually silly Western series that had him
going town to town running from a charge of cowardice in the U.S.
Was this better? In some ways. Not a great series, but definitely fun.
It was running around the time of the Tarzan with Ron Ely and Daktari
(whose theme song went "Daktari - Daktari - Daktari, Daktari, Daktari")
- both, shows about Africa.
I don't remember much about the series, except, Jim Sinclair dressed in
Safari garb, carried a big carbine rifle, and rode a horse.
Also, I remember lots and lots of African animals. It wasn't that great
of a series, but it kept me entertained. Nothing Connors did could
rival "The Rifleman," I don't believe.
