Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rawhide's second season keeps "rollin', rollin', rollin'" and fans of one of TV's greatest Western series will not be disapprovin' of these remaining 16 episodes. A pre-spaghetti Western Clint Eastwood at his longest and leanest, and that classic theme song that Jake and Elwood popularized for a new generation who may have never seen an episode, may rope in buyers for this four-disc set. But nearly 50 years later, Rawhide is as timeless as those majestic landscapes (grandly filmed on location) trail boss Gil Favor (Eric Fleming) and his drovers rode across each week. What makes Rawhide so compelling are its human dramas. As a philosophical Favor notes in one episode, "The expected never seems to happen. The surprises are always poppin' up."

Coming to the aid of a runaway spinster, running afoul of a band of gypsies, or being forced to accompany a wagonload of stolen nitroglycerin provide much more excitement than stampeding cattle. Eastwood, as Favor's protégé, Rowdy Yates, gives Rawhide some "before they were stars" cachet. But this is an ensemble drama in which colorful and memorable characters abound, including Paul Brinegar's grizzled and prideful cook, Wishbone, James Murdock as the simple-minded Mushie, and Sheb Wooley as compassionate scout Pete Nolan. Veteran and greenhorn character actors put their own brands on individual episodes. Frances "Aunt Bea" Bavier turns up in "Incident of the Dust Flower." Warren Oates portrays a gypsy in "Incident of the Dancing Death." Cloris Leachman is an unhappy trading post proprietor's wife in "Incident of the Arana Sacar." And, in "Incident of the Stargazer," who would have thought folksy Buddy Ebsen, clad in a leather jacket, could take part in a Gaslight-scheme to defraud an unfortunate woman? But some of the best episodes in this set revolve around the drovers themselves. In "Incident of the Tinker's Dam," it seems that Wishbone's twin brother is not the paragon his brother steadfastly believes. In "Incident of the Sharpshooter," Rowdy is framed for murder by an outlaw posing as his lawyer. Rawhide galloped into the top ten in its second season. These episodes gloriously recapture a bygone era when Westerns ruled prime time. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars the gold standard in western excellence September 9, 2007
The greatest western there has ever been or ever will be is Rawhide!
Outstanding western series! Keep them coming Paramount! It's true that Gil and Rowdy rule and Rawhide is #1!

episodes for the second half of Season 2 are
39. Incident at Tinker's Dam (2/5/1960)
40. Incident of the Night Horse (2/19/1960)
41. Incident of the Sharpshooter (2/26/1960)
42. Incident of the Dust Flower (3/4/1960)
43. Incident at Sulphur Creek (3/11/1960)
44. Incident of the Champagne Bottles (3/18/1960)
45. Incident of the Stargazer (4/1/1960)
46. Incident of the Dancing Death (4/8/1960)
47. Incident of the Arana Sacar (4/22/1960)
48. Incident of the Deserter (4/29/1960)
49. Incident of the One Hundred Amulets (5/6/1960)
50. Incident of the Murder Steer (5/13/1960)
51. Incident of the Music Maker (5/20/1960)
52. Incident of the Silent Web (6/3/1960)
53. Incident of the Last Chance (6/10/1960)
54. Incident of the Garden of Eden (6/17/1960)

All episodes are excellent. Some early highlight include Night Horse which is packed with action from both man and beast! Sharpshooter is a timeless classic.
After so much waiting and the cruel betrayal of Columbia House, who had started making DVDs available in 2003, uncut and in series order but then abruptly stopped August 2004, Parmount has come to the rescue!
Eric Fleming is amazing as Gil Favor in this seris, there's no one else like him. Rowdy is also incredible in this series. The details of the old west in this series are fantastic. They don't make anything like it nowadays and we'll probably never see anything like it again.
Thank you Paramount!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, don't care about the cost. December 21, 2007
Verified Purchase
I just don't get all the snivveling about the price...the complete set of season two at Amazon's price costs me $5-10 more (depending on the day) than filling the gas tank in my TRUCK! I can attest that this series will be in my posession a lot longer than a tank of gas in my truck & I'll for sure get much more enjoyment from it. :D

As always, I love the series & am thankful that it's being released for my (our) enjoyment. Thank you, Paramount & keep 'em commin!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two gorgeous men November 2, 2007
Verified Purchase
Two gorgeous men on horseback. What's not to love? I fell in love with Gil Favor as a teenager watching Rawhide as it was first run on tv. I'm just thrilled that Paramount is making Rawhide available again in all its glory. I hope Paramount keeps rollin', rollin', rollin' the seasons out as soon as possible until I can finally have the complete set of the series. But they better hurry up. After all, many potential customers who saw Rawhide when it was first broadcast may start dying off soon. Roll 'em out, Paramount, please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! December 19, 2007
Impressed with Rawhide! I'm buying this for myself and several more as Christmas gifts including the second season 2 pack! Highly recommended! The first season and the first installment of the second season had me sold! I'm eagerly waiting for season 3 now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rawhide: A Classic Western September 17, 2007
The good thing about our country is that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In my opinion, I am thrilled to know that the Rawhide series continues to be offered. It far outshines many series being offered today on DVD, and it is my hope that, eventually, the entire series will be available. I anxiously await the release of Season 2, Volume 2, and would encourage any fan of Westerns to purchase the Rawhide series for timeless enjoyment of a real classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Head 'em up and move 'em out! More please! April 26, 2008
I waited years to get my hands on the complete series' of this all time great western series RAWHIDE. Eric Fleming was a great star and actor. I understand that HE was the original one who was asaked to play "The man with no name" - he passed on it and handed it to Clint to see if it interested him - the rest is history. Of course this was a few more years down the line, there are many more great episodes and seasons to enjoy yet. Can't wait to get my hands on season 3. It's a bit of a shame that Clint is given the highlight on the covers when to be honest it was Eric Flemings AND Clint's show ... in that order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gil Favor rides again- and I can't wait! September 21, 2007
I can't wait to get my hands on volume 2 of season 2 of the finest ever western series RAWHIDE. It will be great to have pristine quality prints of each episode and to see Eric Fleming as tough as nails Trail Boss- Gil Favor. There's never been anyone close to him. I don't think the price is high at all. I live in the U.K. and it costs more for me to order it in from the USA- it's worth every cent ( penny in U.K) I really do hope they release every season. They will providing all the true fans get out there and buy it.If you don't buy it we won't see more will we? The trouble with reviewers telling us not to buy,it just to complain is that they are not grasping the solid fact that to do so will stop the release of further Rawhide sets, we, Rawhide true fans can't do that- we want these sets asap, and they are such good value for money no matter what others say, compare these prices to the old video, 2 episodes at a time and much, much more expensive. Let's be grateful for these releases, let's support them and keep 'em coming, I want to see all 8 seasons of Rawhide asap , so let's get out there and buy these sets of this terific show.Poor Eric Fleming died tragically and at last we can relive his classic portrayal of trail boss, Gil Favor , and in such superb quality. We are lucky to be able to do so., let's not ruin the opportunity.
