Editorial Reviews

The year was 1865. The nation s bloodiest conflict, the Civil War, had just ended. It tore the nation apart, into North and South, Republican and Democrat. It spawned a new generation of weapons designed only to kill men, and it trained a generation of men to kill other men. From this year forward for the next 35 years, the South and the North would continue the war in the Wild West. Out of the devastated South rode the most famous of the outlaw gangs, the James and Youngers and the Daltons. From the North rode the most famous of the lawmen Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. All of these characters would clash in the hills of Missouri...The cow towns of Kansas...And the mining towns of Arizona. Towns such as Northfield, Minnesota, Deadwood, South Dakota and Tombstone, Arizona would blaze into American folklore.

MCE's OUTLAWS & GUNSLINGERS is packed in a double-wide keep case that's able to accomodate a half-dozen DVDs. All five of these half-hour-plus programs are on a single disc stored in a black paper glassine-lined sleeve, and since there's no included liner notes, all that extra space is wasted.

This 2008 western history documentary series was produced by BCI/ECLIPSE (formerly Brentwood). Each chapter is a combination of re-enactments, movie clips and vintage art, photos and other media. An anonymous narrator reads from a simply-worded but well-written script. Expert commentary from these historians: Caroline Breneka, Deb and Tom Goodrich, Greg Michno, Larry O'Neal, John Rese and David Wolfe. Other participants, in order of appearance:

David Kennedy - Cody Firearms Museum curator; Bob Boze Bell - True West Magazine editor; Marc Ferguson - storyteller; Gary Chilcote - Patee House Museum director; Jim Sherer - Kansas Heritage Center director; Jared Chatterley - folklore expert; Steve Zimmer - storyteller; Davis Scism - Dalton Defenders Museum director; George Laughead Jr. - Ford County Historical Society director; Mary Kapko - Adams Museum & House, Deadwood.

#1 - ORIGINS OF THE GUNSLINGER - Time: 31:21
Begins with armed mounted dragoons of the 1820s. Specifc museum piece firearms are explained and demonstrated.

#2 - JESSE JAMES & THE SOUTHERN GUERILLAS - Time: 38:35
Frank James and Quantrill's Raiders attack Lawrence, KS. and massacre 450. Bill Anderson takes over for Quantrill (who left for Kentucky); he brings 17-year-old Jesse into the Raiders. After the war, the James and Younger gang pull off the first successful daylight bank robbery, in Liberty, MO.(1866). They go on a 7 year spree then switch to robbing trains. This continues until 1881.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Part Documentary September 19, 2010
Format:DVD
I recommend this series. It traces the history of the western gunslinger, why they existed, how they came into being the legends that they are, and also exposes some of the mythology..., exposing gangs like the James-Younger gang as cold blooded killers and not the heroic outlaws that they are sometimes portrayed as. Including some excellent re-creations of scenes from the old west, from bank robberies to shoot outs in the street, you get an excellent history lesson into the backgrounds of some of the most famous outlaws. The entire 5 part documentary is on one dvd and works very well, audio and video were perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, Informative and Fun to Watch ! May 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is by far one of the best documentary series that Mill Creek Entertainment has ever produced. Over the years they produced some amazing documentaries ( America's 60 Greatest Unsolved Mysteries and Crimes, Vegas: The City the Mob made ), and OUTLAWS & GUNSLINGERS is one of them. Produced by award-winning production company Centre Communications, this series serves as a follow-up to their smash hit "The Great Indian Wars 1540 - 1890". This is the story of the West as it has never been told before...Myth and legend stripped away and the truth revealed by 17 of the nation's top Western authorities. Learn the truth about Billy The Kid, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok and many more. I'm a History buff, I just really enjoy watching documentaries about History, other eras, other times. To me it's a passion. Recently I discovered that I have a huge interest for the Wild West, stories of Cowboys and Outlaws, Billy the Kid, Jesse James and his gang. Fascinating stuff. Very fascinating. I bought this DVD last week, and I wasn't disappointed by it.

Everything about this documentary series is great. The amount of information given to us is impressing, I've learned a lot while watching these 5 episodes. So many fascinating events or characters are covered: Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, how the Wild West begun, the evolution of guns and firearms, the gunfight at OK Corral, towns like Tombstone and Deadwood, the origin of the lawmen, The Civil War, Samuel Colt, John Coffee Hays, Samuel Hamilton Walker, history of the Texas Rangers, The Guerillas, William Quantrill, Allen Pinkerton, Boomtowns, and so much more. Very impressive list. The narrator is great, his voice is perfect for the documentary.

While adjusting a wall hanging in his own home he's shot in the back by Bob Ford (Xmas Eve '81).
