Wayland Farr: Two pair - I check to the queens, Mr. Derringer.
Yancy Derringer: Mr. Farr, I'm just going to have to bet... a thousand dollars.
Wayland Farr: Well, you know, that's a bit embarrassing. I'm a little short of cash.

A Great T.V. Western Series!!!!
31 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

For those fans who loved television westerns such as Maverick,Sugarfoot,Jim Bowie or Shotgun Slade and missed Yancy Derringer you're in for a treat. This series was a touch politically incorrect an Indian(Native American) played by an Indian actor named X Brands did an excellent acting job saving our hero Yancy Derringer( a former Confederate soldier and plantation owner whose former slaves felt he treated them magnificently!) from various dangers each episode.

The writing by Richard Sale and Mary Sale was fun breezy and plotted beautifully. Jock Mahoney was perfect in the role and could have been an important cast member if not the lead in the I Spy series 10 years later. Check it out! and if you are a writer maybe you'll learn something about pacing and moving a story in a natural rhythm. See you at the movies or the comedy circuit Alan
