I hope the bell does not ring for you.
12 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has been a long time since I saw Richard Boone as Paladin. Since I was just a lad of 7 when this came out. I do remember fondly watching every Saturday.

Richard Boone has always played a cool cowboy. Tough and educated, he used his brains more than his gun.

He is joined here by another familiar face - Jack Lord ("Hawaii 5-0"), and very versatile actress, Janice Rule.

Always dressed nattily, Paladin also gets his man and charms the ladies. The ultimate cowboy.

Glad my schoolboy memories were refreshed with this treasure.
