Henry Fonda's only TV western series
4 June 2000 | by raysondSee all my reviews

I recently saw one of the episodes from the series and I had the chance to recorded it,being this will a rare opportunity you'll see Henry Fonda is his only TV series. One interesting part about the show: Fonda was the Marshal who was in charge of law and order in the Arizona Territory of the 1800's as Simon Fry. He always had a deputy beside(who was a storekeeper and lawman as well)him to bring in criminals who broke the law and brought them to justice in the old west. The show was a huge hit when ran on NBC from 1959-1961,when Fonda was still cranking out feature films and starring in a TV series during that time. One note about the show: Fonda also had a second partner helping him out as well,if you catch some of the episodes you'll see a boyish looking Kent McCord(long before he became Officer Malloy on Adam-12 years later)which is rarely seen nowdays. But if you do,it will be a opportunity to catch a great Hollywood actor in one of his best and only TV series that produced 78 episodes and produced by Revue Studios,the same studio that produced the westerns "Wagon Train", "Shotgun Slade",and "The Virginian";the crime shows "Johnny Staccato", "M Squad",and the situation family-friendly comedies "Leave It To Beaver","Bachelor Father",not to mention the anthology drama series "Alfred Hitchcock Presents".
