Editorial Reviews

In this 1960 NBC TV western, William Bendix The Life of Riley and Doug McClure The Virginian, Checkmate star as the Overland Stage superintendent and his young sidekick as they struggle to keep the stagecoach safe from thieves, vigilantes, Native Americans and general mayhem as they move the stage line West from Missouri, across the Rockies, and on to California. Bendix shines as Frederick Kelly, the crusty superintendent who, in addition to his official duties, must keep an eye on his more reckless young assistant, Flip Flippen, played by a young Doug McClure in his first series starring role. The chemistry between McClure and Bendix is nowhere more apparent than when the two share danger, but the show is filled with good humor as well, and has been described as a cross between Tales of Wells Fargo and Laredo.

Each episode of Overland Trail finds the pair pitted against some new threat to the stage line, and the series although short-lived, has an impressive guest cast list, including Harry Guardino Perilous Passage, John Anderson The High Bridge, Denver Pyle Lawyer in Petticoats, Werner Klemperer The Vigilantes of Montana, Claude Akins Fire in the Hole, Slim Pickens and Mercedes McCambridge Sour Annie, John Carradine The Reckoning, John McIntire The Most Dangerous Gentleman and many more. B&W.

if you grew up watching "The Life of Riley" on television, you'll find it difficult to watch these. Bendix plays a gunslinger that plays the role serious. Not that he wasn't a bad actor. He played it straight in the movie "The Blue Dahlia." Doug McClure, people will debate with me, isn't the best cowboy actor and how he got typecast in so many cowboy roles is beyond me. I was just never impressed with him. The series is light-hearted and not meant to be a straight, serious cowboy Western like "Cheyenne." The picture quality is beautiful. The price is a bargain. I remember paying $35 for a 16mm master of one of the episodes. Small tip: I discovered you need to watch the series in chronological order. Don't jump around from one DVD to another just because the titles are catchy. A couple recurring characters make more than one visit so you need to watch them in order.

This is another good western series released by Timeless Media Group.It stars William Bendix and Doug McClure.
Plenty of action in this series about the Overland Trail,a major stage route to the west all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
Willaim Bendix played the man in charge of the stage line with Doug McClure as his sidekick who had been brought up by indians.The two actors play of one another well.There are quite a few funny moments shared by the two actor's here like when the stagecoach almost sinks in the mud.Bendix exclaims it wasn't this deep the last time he came through,to which McClure retorts, "were you standing in the saddle at the time".Another episode has Bendix in the barber's chair with a very nervous barber with a shaky hand after hearing gun fire outside."I've calmed down now" says the barber "so I can now finish you off" to which Bendix replies "That's what I'm afraid of.
Another series that only lasted one season and should have lasted longer,but then Doug McClure would never have ended up in his most famous role as Trampas on "The Virginian".
I bought this series sight unseen and was happy I did.

I have been looking forward to this title being released & I've not been disappointed.I saw the series when it was first broadcast over 50 years ago...seen nothing of it since.Timeless Media have done an outstanding job...I think the best yet.The LARAMIE series (especially the color seasons)were disappointing as this was my favourite western show.Congratulations to Timeless & keep them coming...are we to get full series of The Restless Gun?... as Cimarron City & Riverboat are soon to be released following parts of them coming out....following The Tall Man & Wells Fargo

This TV show is in black and white, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't buy it. It is a classic western. The picture quality is good. The stories are well written and not predictable. I highly recommend it.

Love this show, mix of humour & drama is perfect. The pairing of William Bendix & Doug McClure couldn't be better. If you are into old western tv series give this a go you won't be disappointed. The picture quality & sound are great, the special effects are funny to watch on HDTV but this makes it even more endearing.

I have really enjoyed watching this series of The Overland Trail. I have always liked the two actors and I think they both did a good portrayal of Kelly and Flip. Doug McClure learned to ride as a young boy on a ranch and it helped in later years in the western movies he acted in.
