Editorial Reviews

The most celebrated lawman of the Old West rides again in Season 1 of the popular TV series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. Hugh O'Brien stars as the famed marshal whose exploits with Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, and the Clanton Gang are boldly brought to life in episodes based on actual events. With his signature Buntline Special in hand, Wyatt Earp held posts in a series of increasingly lawless towns and battled dangerous men in his efforts to keep the peace. Through Ellsworth, Wichita, Dodge City, and Tombstone, Earp's reputation as a just and formidable marshal grew, culminating in a storied gunfight that would seal his legend. Starring Hugh O'Brien as Wyatt Earp with Mason Alan Dinehart III as Bat Masterson, Denver Pyle as Ben Thompson, Hal Baylor as Bill Thompson, Gloria Talbott as Abbie Crandall, Don Haggery as Marsh Murdock, Douglas Fowley as Doc Fabrique, Margaret Hayes as Dora Hand and Lloyd Corrigan as Ned Buntline. Special guest stars on the series included Glenn Strange, Rita Lynn, Mike Connors, Angie Dickinson, Elisha Cook, Jr., Fay Baker, John Carradine, James Coburn, Ron Ely, Andy Clyde, Louise Fletcher and many others. In its continuing quest to bring you the best from classic TV, Infinity Entertainment and Falcon Picture Group are proud to present all 33 half hour episodes from Season 1, digitally restored and remastered on 5 DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars inaccurate information about this product May 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have just received The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp ( The Complete Season One)from Amazon,which,of course, I was absolutely delighted about.
However on checking the discs I discovered that, although this was supposed to be Season One, the episode Wichita is Civilized is from Season Two. There is also the matter of the transmission dates which are not in chronological order. Hopefully for Season Two and beyond, Infinity Entertainment and Falcon will rectify these glaring errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars WYATT EARP TV SHOW... May 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great show, got me singing the Wyatt Earp theme song just like it did when I was a kid. Looking at the show with older eyes now tho I'm really impressed with how strong Hugh O'Brian's performance is. Being more interested in the credits now I became interested in finding something out about Frederick Hazlitt Brennan who seems to have been the show's main writer. I thought it was neat that he was a fellow St. Louisian but was saddened to find out he killed himself. His, Hugh O'Brian's and everybody else's work stands up and speaks well for them and made the first "adult western" a good one.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's the point of this release? August 6, 2007
I'm not exactly sure why the Timeless Media Group released this 15 episode collection of "The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp." These same 15 episodes appeared in a larger collection of 26 episodes released in 2005 by Rhino Entertainment and titled The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp - From Ellsworth to Tombstone which Amazon also carries. Given that the Rhino set offers 11 additional episodes and more bonus features at a slightly higher suggested retail price, I am not sure why anyone would want to purchase this set . . . . . it's simply a condensed repackaging of a better set that is still available. Regardless, here are the episodes and single bonus feature contained in this three disc set.

Disc 1
*Wyatt Earp Becomes A Marshal
*Marshal Earp Meets General Lee
*Wyatt Earp Comes To Wichita
*Bat Masterson Again
*Dodge City Gets A New Marshal

Disc 2
*Wyatt Meets Doc Holliday
*Dodge City - Hail And Farewell
*Wells Fargo Calling Marshal Earp
*The Truth About Old Man Clanton

Disc 3
*Requiem For Old Man Clanton
*Wyatt's Brothers Join Up
*Just Before The Battle
*Gunfight At The O.K. Corral
*The Outlaws Cry Murder

Interview with star Hugh O'Brian

Bottom Line: Good show, but it's been done before on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wyatt Earp DVDs May 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched the TV show Wyatt Earp with Hugh O'Brian in the late 1950s when I was a kid and loved it then. Watching episodes from Season 1 (1955-1956) again, I am enjoying them as much as I did more than 50 years ago. They stand the test of time. The quality is very good and shipment was prompt. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys TV westerns from the 1950s and 1960s or anyone who enjoys westerns of any kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars New distributor, We need to show we want more seasons January 29, 2012
The last distributor of this series stopped at season 1, This is a new distributor with goals of getting all seasons released. Unfortunately, they started back at season 1 with the same cover art, which was already released previously. I'm not saying to rebuy season 1, but if you want to see more seasons released it would help to at least send a positive message and NOT discourage potential buyers with low reviews for no reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp Season 1 September 7, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Falcon Picture Group of Illinois is to be thanked for producing such a fine DVD transfer of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. The technical quality is outstanding, and the disks are one sided which some "big" studios should do with their old shows.

Wyatt Earp has always been a favorite of mine. My grandfather whistled the Ken Darby Singers' title song as I was growing up.

What I remembered the most was that Wyatt Earp didn't smoke and drank milk. My grandmother would tell us children-"Drink your milk. Wyatt Earp does." What was strange to us kids was that our grandmother drank buttermilk!

The fifties and early sixties were scary times for us children. On our black and white screens we had a window to the world, especially the world of the western heroes.

Some of the best episodes of season one are the ones with Bat Materson and Ben Thompson. The Buntline Special and the Big Baby Contest are especially humorous with some serious moments.

If you want a family oriented series, then Wyatt Earp is a good one. Make no mistake, Wyatt Earp was no saint in this series. His temper got the best of him at times. The Englishman episode shows this side of Wyatt the best.

There is violence. It was a violent time in American history.

Deacon Earp was a role model. Desilu Studios oversaw a number of great series in the 50's and 60's with heroes and wholesome family values which was not political talk back in those days. It was a reality of innocence which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz brought to the living rooms of America.

hi folks,

As a consumer who is often frustrated by bad public domain prints of classic western television (even though they are often touted as Digitally remastered etc etc) I'm just here to say that these prints are stunning and look to be off the original FILM prints. I'll let others discuss running order and credit sequences and I bow to their knowledge on that regarding this series...I'm just delighted to view this classic in the stunning rich blacks and crisp whites of classic film as it was shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not always historically accurate, but fun to watch.
No, Wyatt Earp wasn't as black-and-white as this depiction suggests, but it is well-acted. I liked it well enough to purchase season 2.
