Wagon Train: the Complete Season Four includes all the 38 episodes that were originally broadcast, on 10 all-region DVDs in an embossed tin.
Season Four was an unusual series, with the management, actors, and crew adapting quickly following the unexpected death of Ward Bond. Bond's last episode to air is the poignant Beth Pearson Story where he meets his old true love again. You have to imagine that at the end he changed his mind and returned to her instead of the Wagon Train. Ward Bond was replaced by John Mcintire.
Inspired by the classic western film Wagonmaster, directed by John Ford (The Searchers, Stage Coach), Wagon Train debuted on Wednesday, September 18th, 1957 on the NBC Television Network. The ensemble acting, wonderful scripts and great western scenery soon made Wagon Train a fixture in American homes on Wednesday nights, as millions of Americans of all ages tuned in to NBC for great family entertainment.
