Editorial Reviews

This popular American Western TV series provided a fictionalized account of the real-life marshal/gambler Bat Masterson. Masterson is depicted with satirical wit as a superbly dressed frontier lawman, generally outfitted in a black suit and derby hat, who is more inclined to bat crooks over the head with his gold-knobbed cane than to shoot them. Masterson roams the West, charming women and defending the unjustly accused.

Audio and Video quality are excellent. This release contains 62 of the 107 episodes. This collection is distributed by TGG Direct and copyrighted 2012 MGM (who owns the show). The MGM logo is on the packaging so this is an official release and the picture quality shows it.

TGG Direct recently signed an agreement with MGM-TV to issue DVD collections of two of the most popular ZIV-produced programs of the 1950s - "Bat Masterson" and "Sea Hunt." We were originally told that full-season sets of both shows would likely be offered by early November 2012. As of this writing, however, this 62-episode "Bat Masterson" collection is the only one that has actually been made available. I have purchased this set and have watched several episodes and can attest that the product is excellent and is a terrific value for the price. The episodes are uncut and were evidently digitized from properly-preserved 35mm master prints. The audio and video quality are exceptional for the age of the show. The collection includes 8 discs in four boxes and the menus are very user-friendly. As a longtime fan of all of the ZIV shows, I eagerly anticipate TGG Direct's other offerings from its MGM-TV licensing agreement. I recommend this set enthusiastically!

Considering what is being charged for other classic Western TV series this could be the value of the year! You get 63 episodes of this classic show starring Gene Barry. It's not the complete series. Its about 44 episodes short but for $27 this should not be a big deal. I played several episodes from the 8 discs in this set and they all had outstanding picture and sound quality and were all the full broadcast length. (about 26 minutes). You have to wonder why it will cost you around $100 to get 60 episodes of "Gunsmoke" when it's possible to get 63 episodes of this show for under $30.

Always rather enjoyed Gene Barry's take on the legendary lawman BAT MASTERSON... In a way, this suave and self-assured hero was something of a pre-Bond, taking on fatcat villains and their henchmen with both sly charm and macho fearlessness. Bat a la Barry was both a rugged man's man and a dashing ladies' man, Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang a few years ahead of time, but operating in the old West. Apart from the pleasures of the show itself, I'm happy to report that the transfer quality of these 60 some-odd episodes is quite spectacular, as they are mastered from the original 35mm negatives. And although this nifty "Marathon" box set doesn't contain every installment of the three-season series, it does have the pilot and most of Season One, and remains one heck of a great value. Highly recommended!

I was over the moon when I saw this boxset was coming out, as up 'till now, my only source was a desperate pirated copy from China, as I thought it would not come to main stream until I was 150 years old.

This is a must have for any Bat Masterson fan, even when the series comes out in January 2013 (hopefully). The stories will be the same, but to own the 24 Hours boxset will enhance your TV Series collection, and stop the craving, at least for a while, to see the series again.

Bat Masterson's trademark was his gold-knobbed cane, a derby hat, a custom built six shooter and his across-the-waist draw. He was unpredictable, surprising and one of the most colourful marshals and gun-fighters, but never killed unless he had to, and at all times was considered a threat. He was always found where trouble was, or maybe trouble found him. Liked by most men (and especially women), his enemies hated him with a vengeance.

During his life he was an indian hunter, buffalo hunter, army scout, law enforcer and a gambler. His stories are legend, but historians have recorded two versions of how he won the "Oriental" gambling saloon.

The American West would not be the same without the exploits of the one and only Bat Masterson, who was one among many to tame the Wild West, but shares the honor of which only a handful are remembered to this day and beyond. Gene Barry's portrayal of 'Bat' was to-a-tee, from his derby hat to his boots.

Although the series will be out next month, I still recommend this boxset to any Bat Masterson fan, old or new alike, and I give this set five stars. I was as inspired by the boxset as I was when the series was on TV back in the 1960s.

4 Stars for a quality western plus 1 star for all of the wonderful memories
it has brought back to me. Gene Barry was made for the role-just like
Burke's Law and The Name of the Game. Black-n-White was the venue
of the 1950s but that is how wonderful those memories shall always remain.
It would not be Bat Masterson in Color. The same applies to Miracle On 34th
Street and It's A Wonderful Life. With today's technology, I have a better image
better audio quality. I can now watch this series without commercial interruption.
My old Admiral TV lacked good sound-n-picture quality, when we used the old
rabbit-ears antenna. When we used the roof-top antennas, the quality was so
much better. It was a sight to see...the rooftops flooded with antennas.
There are some 107-108 episodes in this series...I aim to make another purchase
to complete my collection.
The Bat Masterson TV Series has a great formula...a character who dresses like
a dude, atypical of a good-guy, with a cane and derby hat. The pretty woman
who cling to Bat Masterson's looks and charms each week on national TV.
That theme song is one the best I have ever heard for a western.
After this series ended in 1961, my memories remained buried until 2011.
The theme song kept repeating itself over-n-over-n-over again in my head.
That was the resurrection of my old favorites like Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone
Ranger and Bat Masterson.
I'm not concern about the authencity of the presentation of the old TV series.
Simply, it was just good entertainment.
