5.0 out of 5 stars Just Be Glad It's Out September 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Myself, I've enjoyed watching this series, so what if it's in B & W, heck that's what makes it so enjoyable. As for quality don't know what complaint is, looks pretty good to me. At least it's out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon, correct those false statements! September 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To begin with, Amazon/Timeless tells us that what we're ordering is in color (check above description), but what we actually receive is in black-and-white. Moreover, T's description claims that re-mastered transfers were utilized for this release, which is simply not true. These are old, slightly dirty 16mm prints, a throwback to the company's junk releases (RIVERBOAT, THE TALL MAN, M SQUAD) and far below industry standards. Obviously Timeless hoped that TV fans hooked on the superb 35mm quality of THE VIRGINIAN episodes (which were legitimately re-mastered for their run on Encore, with T ultimately getting the benefit), would assume that this Universal western series from the same period would look comparable. Nope. 16mm back-up prints, and b/w besides. Sadly, the show's pretty flat as a creative entertainment to begin with, but the proper presentation would have gone a long way toward making a guilty pleasure purchase like this acceptable. A little bit of a mystery here: WAS this series shot in color? Update: The pilot, presented here in b/w, was shot in Pathe color, according to the credit in the end titles. All the other episodes (at least the ones viewed so far) were filmed in b/w. My guess is that the color pilot sold the series, but ABC didn't feel like financing color for the twelve additional episodes. As a result of this, some sources (Retro-TV western sites, Amazon, Timeless) incorrectly categorize DESTRY as a color series, while others (IMDb, Wikipedia) say b/w, but don't explain that a) the pilot was shot in color, and b) whether or not this first hour was actually broadcast on the ABC network in color.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Gem.........Rediscovered November 20, 2011
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What I like about reviewing shows like this is the fact that they are little remembered or have never been seen.This tells the story of Harrison Destry played by John Gavin, famous for such movies as "Psycho " and "Imitation of Life".
This series is loosely based on the movie "Destry rides Again" with James Stewart back in 1939.Here we have Gavin playing the son of Tom Destry a famous sheriff who during his career had been shot at 37 times.It was the last seven,one night, that did him in.
The series traces Harrison Destry's adventures each week as he tries to track down Charlie Bent the man who framed him and sent him to prison for two years.This is a comedy western,think of "Maverick" and "Alias Smith and Jones".
I really liked this series, although it only lasted for one season for 13 episodes.I don't know why this was as it should have lasted a lot longer.But thanks to Timeless Media Group this series long thought of as lost has been restored in all it's glory to be seen here.It's a great little series with a catchy theme tune sung by "The Ledbetters"

3.0 out of 5 stars Destry September 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Destry was a good show,unfortunately it didn't last long. I think it was on for half of a season. Timeless Media has done a masterful job on remastering on shows alot older than this show, the results were a bit lacking on this project. The last episode was best as far as clarity is concerned. Other than that I am happy to have it in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series October 2, 2011
By Jeanne
Format:DVD
I bought this 2 yrs ago from a different source, and am writing this because of the 1 star review, which it doesn't deserve. This was my favorite series way back when and I'm thrilled that it is out. It was black and white, as were all the other shows at that time that I can recall. It's as good as all the other westerns previous to this, like The Rifleman, Sugarfoot, Cheyenne, Bat Masterson, and all the others. It's a great show and deserving of good reviews. As for picture quality, what I bought was great considering the age and unavailability of it all these years. I'm just glad it's available and I'm sure what it being sold here is as good as what I have. It's a treat to see it again.

Since I have enjoyed the 2 earlier Destry movies I decided to order this short lived TV version with John Gavin. I thought it was quite good. Would recommend it to others who may be interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I remember March 12, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had the tune stuck in my head for 50 years. Started to have doubts that there was even a program, now I can say that there was. As soon as it arrived I watched all 13 episodes right away. Remembered enjoying it as a kid, but having seen it again, it was more entertaining than I remembered! Having nevered gone into syndication I couldn't care how badly the images were, just wanted to see Destry again. Actually the imagining was very good. I'm very happy!
