For those fans who loved television westerns such as Maverick,Sugarfoot,Jim Bowie or Shotgun Slade and missed Yancy Derringer you're in for a treat. This series was a touch politically incorrect an Indian(Native American) played by an Indian actor named X Brands did an excellent acting job saving our hero Yancy Derringer( a former Confederate soldier and plantation owner whose former slaves felt he treated them magnificently!) from various dangers each episode.
The writing by Richard Sale and Mary Sale was fun breezy and plotted beautifully. Jock Mahoney was perfect in the role and could have been an important cast member if not the lead in the I Spy series 10 years later.
