This collection contains five TV western episodes from four different series, the only common link being the appearance of Robert Redford in each of them, all dating back to the years before BAREFOOT IN THE PARK and BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID made him a movie star. One of the episodes ("The Virginian") is in color and is 75 minutes long. The others ("The Deputy," "Whispering Smith" and two from "Tate") are half-hour shows in black-and-white. Redford has small parts in two of them. He's a bad guy in three of them, a good guy in one of them and an angry young convict given a chance to make good in another. The prints and transfers are all quite good, thanks to being licensed directly from the copyright owner, NBC Universal. This isn't one of those TV western box sets from Mill Creek.

Redford is quite good in each of them, but it's only The Virginian episode, "The Evil That Men Do," that gives him a central role, that of Matthew Cordell, a convict paroled into the custody of Judge Garth (Lee J. Cobb). The good judge, now a full-time rancher, has taken pity on the young man after learning he was raised in an orphanage and imprisoned since he was a teenager, and hopes that by giving him an opportunity to work and be productive in a nurturing environment, he can be properly socialized. The emphasis on prisoner rehabilitation was a liberal concept that was in vogue at the time the show was written (1963), but might have been frowned on seventy to a hundred years earlier when criminals like Cordell would have been dealt with a bit more harshly by the judges of the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars TV Westerns Featuring: Robert Redford September 11, 2012

It was fun watching Redford in his early years and seeing the beginnings of the actor he would become. But my how times have changed since he first started on his career. Watching the shows sure gives you a look at our TV entertainment past in the area of westerns.
