Vikings TV show
20 April 2008 | by BikewerSee all my reviews

We were just talking about the Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas film, The Vikings, and that got me remembering the TV series.

I remember it was on Sunday nights here in St. Louis, and was sponsored by the local Laclede Gas company.

Let's see...

"From out of the North like an icy wind, came Odin's fair warriors free... With broadaxe and spear, they conquered...(something)

Don't remember much more!

I recall that Buddy Baer had a huge club carved into the shape of a woman which he called the "little maiden".

I'm wondering if this was only on kinescope, and no copies remain?
