THE GUNS OF WILL SONNETT - THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1 & 2 - 6 DVD SET! The Guns of Will Sonnett follows the exploits of Will Sonnett, a retired army scout and his grandson Jeff, as they journey through the west in search of the boy's father, James. James abandoned his family twenty years before to become a renowned gunfighter. As Will and Jeff ride the high plains in hopes of finding and redeeming James, they often become involved with people who have been touched by the guns of James Sonnett. Although Will and Jeff come close, it is difficult to find James, who does not want to be found and who is always on the move. Starring the legendary actor Walter Brennan as Will Sonnett and Dack Rambo as Jeff, The Guns of Will Sonnett aired for only two seasons. With fast paced, well-writtten stories and high production values, The Guns of Will Sonnett was one of the most underrated western television shows of all time. The show featured some of the best supporting actors of the day with wonderful performances from seasoned character actors Harry Dean Stanton, Claude Akins and Strother Martin. Playing opposite Walter Brennan and the rest of the fine cast also allowed young actors to gain experience. Charles Grodin, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson were just a few of the future stars who performed on The Guns of Will Sonnett. Sit back and relive the Old West of cow towns, saloons, high prairie and sagebrush, as Will and Jeff battle both gunslingers and the law in their quest to reunite their family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Western Series August 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had found memories of this series from my childhood. When I seen the DVD set on line I ordered it right away. While waiting for my order to arrive I started wondering if my memory had served me well or if I had wasted my money. I can tell you this was money well spent! I absolutely love this DVD set, and this way under rated series. The series was just as I had remembered it, Walter Brennan makes this series an absolute joy to watch! If you enjoyed watching westerns as a kid like me believe me you will love this DVD set! NO BRAG JUST FACT!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to be a Man June 30, 2011
Format:DVD
This is a remarkable artifact from an era when to be a man meant having respect for women, keeping your word, standing up for what's right and a thousand other qualities which are now politically incorrect but were once the hallmark of being a grown-up. This is the perfect audio-visual companion to James Bowman's Honor: A History.

Each episode has a lesson illustrating how a man should act and ends with a prayer by Walter Brennan that his grandson learn the lesson. Walter Brennan was one of the great character actors in Hollywood history and Guns is the perfect vehicle for his acting skills. Terrific guest stars and well written scripts round out the series, making this a television classic.

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
I wrote that review after seeing the first one or two discs. Now that I've watched all six discs, I stand by it as much now as I did when I wrote it, but I've noticed something even more profound about this series.

We know that many TV shows in the 1960s were more profound than they appeared on the surface. The producer of Gilligan's Island has said that the show was about democracy and scholarly books have been written to support that.

In addition to providing lessons of manhood, The Guns of Will Sonnet is about myths and history and their role in our personal growth. The choice of actors is perfect. Walter Brennan was a legend himself in Hollywood by the late 1960s, having become an actor shortly after he returned as a doughboy from World War I. Dack Rambo, who played Jeff has such deference to Brennan that the viewer completely believes that he is Brennan's grandson. For an actor who doesn't appear to have had a long career, he is terrific here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best 30 minute Western ever made July 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I can remember this great show as a kid growing up. Well, at least I remembered the theme song and the prayers being spoken at the end of each episode. I was so excited to find this great show on DVD that I bought the complete series for myself and my son who is in college, he loves this series too. Thanks to Timeless Media for bringing this wonderful show to DVD. Great family friendly entertainment!

3.0 out of 5 stars Edited-for-TV versions August 21, 2012
By Z
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great show, and the video quality's decent for a program of this vintage... the only problem is, the shows are short. Half-hour TV shows from this time period usually run around 25 minutes, and the episodes in this set are around 21 minutes each. In a few I've watched there are noticeable jumps in the narrative, where something was obviously cut out. So it looks like Timeless got ahold of versions that had been chopped for modern broadcast, and to fit more commercials in several minutes of each episode got chopped out. That may be the only versions still available, though - I've bought a lot of Timeless discs and they usually do the best they can with vintage material.

It's still a set that's very-much worth getting, because the show is excellent... I just thought buyers should be aware that they're edited versions first, just to avoid disappointment. (Five stars for the show itself, two taken off for the edited versions)

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Underrated TV Series in History February 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remembered this series from the 1960s, and that the old CBN cable network played it during the 1980s. This is one of the most underrated TV series in history. To think that one could actually watch TV without every sort of vile, vulgar remark as modern "commedies" do. And....GASP...the star of the show could offer a heartfelt PRAYER at the end of each episode!!!!!!! There is no way they would make this show today, much to our loss. I spent the better part of a week-end watching most of this 6-disk set. It was worth every minute of it. My sole complaint is that they seemed to have deleted portions of every episode, thus the reason why I only gave it Four Stars. But this is SO MUCH better than the junk that is on TV today.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor video quality August 21, 2010
By Bummed
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The quality is what I would have expected if someone had recorded this from the TV feed on a VHS tape. In addition to the poor visual tones, it is quite choppy as though commercials were recorded and then cut out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fugitive goes out West November 21, 2012
By Mike
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series tells the story of a son and his grandfather who roam the west in search of the son's father who left years ago and who was once a sheriff but could now be working on the other side of the law as most know him as gunfighter and killer. Mistaken identity or framed we have to follow the trail each week to find out the truth. Walter Brennan plays the grandfather and Dack Rambo plays his grandson. Jason Evers plays Jim Sonnet the man they are in search of who appears periodically throughout the series.
Not a lot of guest stars here.
Claude Akins [ Movin On ]
Cloris Leachman [ Raising Hope ]
James Best [ The Dukes of Hazzard ]
Kevin McCathy [ Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1956 ]
Paul Brinegar [ Rawhide ]

This show is exceptionally good. Produced by Danny Thomas and Aaron Spelling. This was a pretty intense series for Mr Spelling as we are used to his lighter fare like "Charlie's Angels".
It's like a good book. You can't put it down.Once you have read one chapter you can't wait to read the next. It's plot is very similar to "The Fugitive" and I loved that series. There is plenty of action here for all western fans. Do they find him alive in the end or is he never found? The answer lies in the last bonus feature. An episode I think that was never aired in it's original run and that's why it's listed as a bonus.
Not having seen this show when it first appeared I feel I have to mention that it looks to have been edited from 25 minutes down to 21 minutes.If it has that's a pity. Then I would have to give it 4 stars instead of 5. But I highly recommend this series.
Bonus features a biography of Walter Brennan, two episodes from "The Playhouse" with Mr Brennan.

Item was delivered and packaged as promised. Will happily recommend to others,but would also point that due to age of episodes, that picture quality is poor on some of the videos.
