Editorial Reviews

Based on a radio teleplay starring James Stewart Restless Gun follows the exploits of Vint Bonner (John Payne) a retired gunfighter and restless drifter who wanders the Southwest in search of adventure.- Preferring to find peaceful resolutions to the problems he faced Bonner was often given no choice but to fight and his proficiency with a gun made him a fearsome opponent to those who dared cross him.- Bonner carried around a special kit that would extend the rang of his gun this involved extensive assembly and became a novelty for the show and inspired Westerns that followed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Restless Gun Complete Series April 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
The show is about a retired gunslinger that travels around the west helping people he knows or runs into that are in trouble. The series has a message about life and in some episodes is comical about what is going on. I grew up watching it on tv. He tries not to kill if possible and tries to avoid fights if possible. I would recommend it for the children of today instead of the violent shows being made today.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Restless Gun June 21, 2013

Great actor in this entertaining TV western series. The company that makes these DVD's from the original show does a very good job. This is just one of the many TV westerns that was on TV in the 50's & 60's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show! Box set, Black & White, NTSC (not Color) April 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
A better than average western series produced by NBC Television. John Payne's first foray in a weekly show.
It debuted on Sept. 23 1957 and ran until Sept. 14 1959.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spent the money all over again - and worth it! September 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was only a baby when this series was on the air so I don't remember it.
In my adult years, I've become a big fan of John Payne and I enjoy almost all of the films he's been in (one by one, they are slowly being released on DVD - although "Sun Valley Serenade" is still only available on VHS).

I had purchased 2 of the other Restless Gun boxed sets a few years ago but I was disappointed that they only contained a small portion of the series.
Well, I spent the money all over again to get the complete series and I can say that I'm only disappointed that this wasn't released first! I guess Timeless Video had to see if there was a market for it first prior to releasing the entire series.

It's kind of fun watching the episodes back to back. The same actors appear in different roles (something you wouldn't notice if you watched on a weekly basis) and the same scenery is used for a variety of towns and trails. I guess those same actors were under contract to Universal at the time so they just used them multiple times. Many of them went on to be famous later on: Michael Landon, James Coburn, Jack Elam, Dan Blocker. Some of them were co-workers from John Payne's days at Fox like James Gleason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Western Buffs will Love it. October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't remember seeing this particular series on television. As a kid, grew up watching television when it first came out. All movies were in black and white and there were numerous western shows. Perhaps, that is a major reason I enjoy the old west and vintage cowboy movies and TV series. The Restless Gun series takes be back to my youth and bring back fond memories. The plot is uncomplicated. Life back then was simple and right always prevailed over wrong. If, you are not a western buff, you probably will not be able to relate to this series and think that I'm nuts for giving it a five star rating. If you are interested in fast pace series, with a complicated stoyline, lots of romance, action, and thrills, this western is not for you. John Payne, the main character, is honest, quiet, strong, and brave. Western fans will enjoy his adventures. Each TV episode was approximately 30 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Darn Good Western from the late 1950s August 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
Glad I bought The Restless Gun Complete Series box set. I purchased the 3 DVD, 24 episode collection some years ago & have been wanting to see the other 54 episodes! John Payne plays the lead very well & even turns his hand to comedy in some of the more light-hearted episodes. He makes this western highly watchable & entertaining. There are also guest stars in a lot of the stories.
I'm deducting one star because the episodes seem to have been sourced from 16mm prints, some of which are fairly well-worn, but as Timeless Media Group state on the DVDs, they were taken from the best sources available. Don't let this put you off buying the series, just be prepared to adjust your brightness setting for some episodes.
This is a very enjoyable western series & I can see why it was popular in its day, 1957-59.

3.0 out of 5 stars Payne too nice for a gunslinger
Good but not great example of late 50s western series. Transfer is not as sharp and clear as other series, such as 'The Texan'. This also lacks the scope of other shows... Read more
