Editorial Reviews

The show followed the adventures of Paladin (Richard Boone), a gentleman/gunfighter, who preferred to settle problems without violence, yet, when forced to fight, excelled. Paladin lived in the Carlton Hotel in San Francisco, where he dressed in formal attire, ate gourmet food, and attended the opera. In fact, many who met him initially mistook him for a dandy from the East. When working, he dressed in black, used calling cards, wore a holster that carried characteristic chess knight emblems, and carried a derringer under his belt.

I have been a fan of Have Gun Will Travel since I first saw it during the 1950s. It was the precursor of Kung Fu. In both cases the central character was "a knight without armor in a savage land." Both series also emphasized moral values through the central character's emphasis on helping those in need. Both series also had a distinct intellectual bent. In the case of Paladin the emphasis was placed on Western philosophy with quotable quotes by Paladin from major philosophers in conjunction with challenging ethical quagmires. Kane, the central character in Kung Fu and other characters such as Masters Han and Poe, also provided similar insights with an oriental thrust. In the final analysis, Have Gun Will Travel is one of the best TV series that ever hit the airways.

However I also agree with the comments offered by another reviewer regarding corporate greed. The pricing of this series is nothing more than a transparent ploy to make as much money as possible at the customer's expense. Possibly those who developed this strategy should take the time to view this series (along with Kung Fu) in the hopes of developing a moral center.

In my opinion. While I can understand the thoughts above concerning pricing and split seasons, I'm just happy that we may actually get all six seasons completed by end of next year.

We have really been enjoying the 5th season episodes. We have all the other seasons on DVD, and have been anxiously awaiting this (too bad they are releasing it in two halves, but that's the way it is). So far, two of the best episodes ever have been in the 5th season: The Education of Sara Jane (excellently directed by Richard Boone), and The Hanging of Aaron Gibbs (which stars the famous black gospel singer Odetta in a really stunning performance). If you are a HGWT fan, don't hesitate; buy this great volume.

Love the series, thankful to have it available. That said, no additional material like in the first couple of seasons. Upset that seasons are broken into two parts, preferred singular package for season.

I am surprised and overjoyed that Paramount continues to release Have Gun - Will Travel so quickly now, just 1 1/2 seasons to go to have the whole restored set. Thanks, Paramount

I love this show and have bought the entire series on DVD (6 seasons total). Richard Boone is a great actor and his laugh is infectious. This isn't the typical western which makes it a fun and entertaining show. I grew up watching Gunsmoke reruns with my dad but didn't discover HGWT till about 10 years ago when I caught a few episodes on the Westerns Channel. I was hooked and started buying the seasons on DVD. As far as the DVDs and content goes - The first 3 seasons were done really well. They include guest star bios and interesting facts for each episode. The last 3 seasons were released later and do not include this bonus information which is a shame. (though I am thankful they DID finally release them!) They also divided the last 3 seasons up into two volumes each in order to make more money. The video quality of the second 3 seasons also seems to be of lesser quality (maybe the first 3 seasons were digitally cleaned up and the last three were not?). In my humble opinion seasons 1-4 are rock solid with great episodes and story lines. Seasons 5 & 6 (in my opinion) the quality of story lines and acting seems to drop in a noticeable way. Still worth watching of course but just something that I noticed. Overall a great TV series with a great actor. Thankful they are available on DVD so I can watch them with my boys.

Richard Boone was classic as Paladin, Season 5 was great!! I can't wait for vol. 2. It's a shame they don't make this kind of television any longer.
