Storyline

When gold was discovered in the Yukon in the 1890s, thousands of hopeful prospectors headed north for a chance at becoming rich. The easiest passage to the Yukon was through the small Alaskan port town of Skagway, which quickly exploded into a sprawling boom town, offering almost everything a miner could want, for a price. Adventurers Silky Harris and Reno McKee have arrived in this town looking to make their fortunes. Not mining for gold, but by catering to and fleecing the hardy, hard-living miners who pass through town. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The Screen Writers Guild went out on strike in January 1960, and did not settle with the major studios until June 1960. After Warner Brothers had gone through all existing scripts of this show, they began to re-work old scripts from their series Maverick (1957). Hardly more than character names were changed, which made the plot very predictable to "Maverick" fans. It is interesting to note that this show went off the air at the same time that the writers settled their strike. See more »

Great
29 October 2017 | by riktheactorSee all my reviews

I loved this show back when I was eleven years old. Roger, Dorothy and Jeff were ALL excellent in it and I remember an abominable snowman episode that stands out to me. Although I haven't seen it ever in reruns nor since I am MOST amazed that no one I mention it to remembers it. Rik Billock, actor/singer
