Meet the real Claude Atkins!
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is probably my favorite Claude Atkins character. He plays Sam Hill (you know, like "What in Sam Hill...?) He's bigger than life, can hit an anvil over and over without tiring (can eve beat the ol' Hoss), and apparently doesn't need sleep.

His main problem is a land owner who wants the land of his parents. His mother died on that land (stay soon to learn what happened), and there is some sort of magical power that makes a tree grow that shouldn't.

Edgar Bucannon does an excellent job playing Sam's wayward father who has returned from the dead.

Joe and Hoss, of course, offer some rather humorous comic relief. Adam...well...Adam is just there.
