Before they were famous ..............
7 June 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

This short-lived western series was a departure from the usual B-western fare that had dominated the big screen for so many years. Peter Breck (later to be Nick on Big Valley) and Russell Johnson (Later the Professor on Gilligans Island) starred in this tale of an ex-gunman who began using the law to subdue the owlhoots who circumvented prairie law.

Breck and Johnson did well in this series, but the plot and limited action were too much of a departure for the series to catch on. Still, its worth a look to see these interesting actors early on in their budding careers.
