Darren McGavin and Burt Reynolds head a superb cast in this thrilling adventure series set aboard a stern-wheeler plying the Mississippi River in the 1840's. McGavin plays Captain Grey Holden, who won the Enterprise in a poker game, and Reynolds, in his first TV series role, plays the boat pilot Ben Frazer.

Actors in recurring roles include Noah Beery, Jr., John Mitchum and Jack Lambert. Episode guest stars include Vera Miles, Aldo Ray, Anne Baxter, Eddie Albert, Claude Akins, Debra Paget, Vincent Price, and Robert Vaughn. Black & White 44 Episodes 1959-1961
