The 1950s and 1960s were truly the Golden Age of the television western. The genre was so popular that at one time there were over 32 hours of western dramas every week, many in the top ten, at a time when there were only three network television stations.
The TV Western was pure family entertainment, and generations of fans looked forward each week to their favorite lawmen and cowboys riding into their living rooms to bring law and order to a wild and untamed land. Now, for the first time, this collection of TV Western Classics from TMG brings you over fourteen hours of action-packed drama, many of them lost but not forgotten since their original broadcasts.
Every effort has been made to faithfully re-master the original quality of picture and sound to bring you the best in Western entertainment. From the dusty trail towns of west Texas, to the rough and rumble of Oklahoma Territory; these stirring tales of life in the Old West are sure to bring smiles to old fans, and find new fans too!
