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
- 16 episodes from the 1959-1960 season on four discs

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!Read more ›
