Marshal Earp keeps the law, first in Kansas and later in Arizona, using his over-sized pistols and a variety of sidekicks. Most of the saga is based loosely on fact, with historical badguys... See full summary »

Pith-helmeted Buck is a Great White Hunter who here (unlike the real one from the 1940s) works out of the Raffles Hotel bar in Singapore during the 1930s fighting all kinds of bad guys in pre-war Malaya.
I bought this movie because Ross Martin was in it, and as soon as I saw him I realized how wonderful an actor he was all over again. My heart was breaking as I watched this performance, his Jacob Speigler. The movie itself is not the greatest movie I have ever seen, but it has that feel of "Little House on the Prairie" since Allison Arngrim appears in the movie, and Marie Osmond is so sweet. Matthew Perry's father was immediately recognized. However, as I have said, Ross Martin's performance was what drew me to this title. He was a master character actor and it shows in this role. In his first scene he treats Osmond's Josie with such tenderness that I thought my heart would break. I will never get over my girlhood crush on Ross Martin, even though he was old enough to have been my grandad, both having been born in 1920.
