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 television series role, plays the boat pilot Ben Frazer. Drawing on stories from real-life travelers on the river, each episode of Riverboat relives events on the "Enterprise," as she travels up and down the Mississippi, America's premier waterway. Actors in recurring roles include Noah Beery, John Mitchum. Episode guest stars include Dan Duryea, Suzanne Pleshette, Eddie Albert, Claude Akins and Debra Paget.
