Editorial Reviews

Exciting western action, topflight production values and a strong and consistent cast of characters made "The Rifleman," starring Chuck Conners, into a highly successful TV series during the late 50s and continuing into 1963. Connors, as a lightning-fast, super accurate marksman and devoted, single father, imbued many of the episodes with a wholesome, moral lesson. The relationship between Lucas McCain (Connors) and his young son, Mark (Johnny Crawford), is both believable and admirable, another big plus for the show's devoted fans.

MAIL ORDER GROOM: The notorious Proffit brothers have been badgering Agnes, the old maid of the town to keep her from buying valuable ranch land they want for themselves. But soon after the stagecoach rolls into Northfolk carrying the husband-to-be that Agnes advertised for back east-the badgering turns to bullying and beyond. Soon the Rifleman intervenes and tries desperately to keep a murder from ruining a marriage.

THE OUTLAW'S INHERITANCE: The town council votes unanimously to have Lucas represent them when they make their bid to have a proposedrailroad spur come to Northfolk. But a crooked businessman from the rival town of Center City, plots to win the lucrative bid and discredit the Rifleman by associating him with a notorious bank robber.

DAY OF THE HUNTER: Legendary old Indian scout Cass Callicot shows up in town with a challenge. He hopes to outshoot the Rifleman and prove that he still possesses the marksman skills he had in his youth. Wanting to avoid a shootout, Lucas brushes the old man off resulting in a tense confrontation which treatens young Mark.

Format: DVD
This three episode collection issued by Alpha Video contains the same three episodes that have been issued by various companies specializing in public domain material; in fact, if you already own any DVDs of the Chuck Connors Western "The Rifleman," be sure to compare the episodes on your discs with those contained on Alpha's so as to avoid possible duplication. The episodes include "Outlaw's Inheritance," "Day of the Hunter," and "Mail Order Groom." For casual fans of the series who would like to include a few episodes in their classic TV collection, this DVD will fit the bill nicely. But serious fans of "The Rifleman" will want to check out the various official DVD box sets issued by MPI for the best episode selection and best audio/visual quality.

Trivia Note: John Anderson guest stars in two of the episodes, "Day of the Hunter" and "Mail Order Groom." These two episodes were originally broadcast just a week apart!

Format: DVD
The first episode (pilot episode) is the best. Episodes handled by Sam Peckinpah are the best because they have a somewhat harder "edge" and never get "sappy" as this series did in its last year or so (this DVD has the most Peckinpah episodes).
Too bad we get shortchanged, this DVD needs at least two more espisodes. DVD's longer service life makes it worthwhile to upgrade to have the best episodes of the best western series.

"The Rifleman" is superior to the other westerns of its era, nearly 30 years after its debut, this series was a prime component of one cable channel's lineup. Surprisingly, Conners began a short-lived attorneys series immediately after "The Rifleman" went off the air. This series was a coming together of talented actors with good chemistry together, mostly good scripts, and the best music of any TV show ever.

Format: DVD
"The Rifleman" was on TV before I was born, and though I dimly remembered the show growing up, I really became acquainted with the program when it was carried for a time on the Family Channel a few years ago. I enjoyed the program immensely, attracted by the relationship between Lucas McCain and his son Mark. Wonderful acting by the tough as nails Chuck Connors, and the adorable Johnny Crawford. Time really flies watching this program, it seems that it has only just begun, and then suddenly it's over. The same can be said of this DVD, as the episodes seem to quickly slip by one after another.
McCain is a single father, trying to find a new life with his son in North Fork. His goal is to teach his son what he needs to know to survive in the old wild West. McCain's methods are basic "tough love", and may seem harsh by today's standards. But underneath the gruff exterior, is the true warm love of a father for his son. A similar treatment is applied to others undergoing life crisis, like the alcoholic Micah Torrance, and Michael Landon's outlaw character, as well as many others in future episodes in order to help them see the error of their ways.
Issues of morality are typically presented as black and white, compromise is usually out of the question. Justice is often administered by McCain's tricked out Winchester lever-action rifle. Some episodes (particularly Peckinpah's), not necessarily in this collection, are particularly violent. The violence is treated as necessary, but the dead are not dwelt upon, and therefore the effect is softened, and passes as we fade to the commercial break. McCain kills only when forced to, and as a last resort.
Others may not agree, but "The Rifleman" is a show about men, primarily for men.

Format: DVD
If you are just looking for a few random episodes, this DVD is peachy. However, the episodes you get are apparently different depending on which Rifleman Volume 1 DVD they decide send you - will you get 3 or 4 episodes? Which episodes will they be?... Who knows. Good luck.

This DVD was supposed to have 4 episodes: "The Sharpshooter", "The Marshall", "End of a Young Gun" & "Home Ranch", two of which written by Sam Peckinpah. Those are on the OTHER Rifleman Volume 1 - which is the one I ordered. But what is really on the disk I received is 3 episodes: "Mail Order Groom", "The Outlaw's Inheritance", & "Day of the Hunter".

Looking through the customer reviews, there are reviews from people who got the 3-episode disk, as well as the 4-episode disk, and then one review from someone who got 5 episodes! Ridiculous. Apparently, somewhere in the system, there is a drunk monkey randomly assigning which Volume 1 you will get. Just be aware, you might not get what you think you are getting.

I wanted 4 episodes & got 3. If you want the 3, you might get the 4. If anyone wants to swap, let me know.

Format: DVD
I first saw " The Rifleman " series in Singapore in the mid 1960s. My family enjoyed watching this show. In particular, my elder brother and I grew up with the western films - on screen and TV. After more than 40 years, I still remember vividly Chuck Connors as the super-hero Rifleman. I really enjoyed this DVD and saw all 5 series in a row. I long for more, as the Rifleman is a different kind of hero from the modern hero I see today. The Rifleman balances both compassion with justice in withholding right values against wrong.There is a sense of genuinness when he fought for justice compared with today's heroes.
The 5 shows are very clear with superb sound and voice clarity. Till today, Chuck Connors remains my favourite hero and justice icon.
