Editorial Reviews

The Virginian - The Complete Fourth Season - 30 Full Color Episodes - 10 DVD Special Embossed Tin! Owen Wister's 1902 western novel The Virginian was one of the first great novels of the American West. Set in the semi-mythical town of Medicine Bow, Wyoming in the 1890's, it chronicled the lives and relationships of the people who came west and settled the wild land. Starring James Drury in the title role, The Virginian was the first 90 minute television western, airing in prime time on NBC from 1962-1971. The stellar cast included Lee J. Cobb, Doug McClure, Clu Gulager, LQ Jones and Randy Boone. Season Four (1965-1966) brought changes to Shiloh Ranch. John Dehner joined the cast as Morgan Starr, the new boss of the ranch, and Diane Roter came on board as Jennifer Sommers. Season Four's line-up includes John Mitchum, Strother Martin, John Doucette, Joyce Van Patten, James MacArthur, Charles Bronson, Leslie Nielson, John Cassavetes, Ed Begley, and many more! Color

Here are capsule impressions of episodes aired during the bumpy path of season four.

A LITTLE LEARNING -- Guest stars, Albert Salmi, Susan Oliver
Illiterate, trouble-prone hayseed creates dangerous misunderstandings when he approaches an attractive schoolteacher. Initially unpromising episode turns suspenseful and ultimately gripping. Salmi makes his inarticulate character quite moving, and child actor Craig Hundley earns high marks for an emotional scene with Drury. Bruce Dern is meaner than ever as Oliver's possessive former husband.

THE CLAIM -- Guest star, William Shatner
Trampas quits Shiloh in a huff and goes gold prospecting with a shiftless buddy and a derelict. Obvious rehash of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre," with McClure, Strother Martin and Shatner channeling Tim Holt, Walter Huston and Humphrey Bogart. Captain Kirk beams out of Bogey's shadow with a striking performance. The crew of the Enterprise was no stranger to Shiloh; Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan also appeared during season four.

THE AWAKENING -- Guest star, Glenn Corbett
Betsy Garth falls in love with an ex-minister who sides with miners during a labor dispute. Roberta Shore bids a graceful farewell to Shiloh in memorable episode. Blue-eyed heart throb Corbett performs with becoming restraint, making him a fit partner for the modest Shore. Betsy's swan song was an island of tranquility in the choppy seas of season four, which would only get more turbulent.

RING OF SILENCE -- Guest stars, Earl Holliman, Joyce Van Patten, Royal Dano
A stage with Sheriff Emmett Ryker aboard is waylaid by Mexican marauders bent on vengeance against a passenger.

In my opinion, The Virginian was the best Western on TV at the time. For a 90 min format, the stories were interesting, and they never seemed to "drag" on. Timeless Media has done a great job with these DVDs and I'm looking forward to the rest of the seasons. The only negative I have, is that they don't have a listing anywhere of the episodes on the set. You have to look at the DVD and if it's in the player, it's kinda hard to do that unless you stop the dvd and go to the menu. Other than that, they're great! Excellent quality, super clear and a lot of fun to watch. I love the interviews that come with each set. It's always fun to hear the back story. Maybe at some point we can get a "blooper" dvd as well? ;-) Thanks Timeless Media.

I gave this a five star rating because the film has been fully restored to its original quality and the writing and acting is outstanding. This was the first 90-minute Western series and was like watching a film each week. The family feel of the show always drew me to it and is again evident now that I have the opportunity to watch the show over again. If you are a fan of the Western genre, then this is a must have for you. If you aren't a fan, try it anyway. I am sure the excellent writing and the out stand acting will draw you in. In my humble opinion, the is absolute positively the best Western series ever made.

I have had a love for westerns since I watched them with my grandmother in the late 50's and early 60's. Whenever I can find and add to my western collection, the different westerns over the years, I am more than elated and grateful that Amazon sell some of the best quality products I have ever ordered, i.e. color, some where close to perfection in the picture and the audio is great. It's almost like being there!!! I never hesitate ordering from Amazon for I am assured, through purchsing over the years, that I will receive a product I am be satisfied with. Thank you Amazon. Enjoyed it as much as Season Three.

The Virginian is my favorite television Western. As many reviews have said, each 75-minute episode is more like a Western movie of the week with familiar characters as well as great guest stars. This show was a cut above other TV Westerns in terms of its acting, location photography, wonderful music scores, and intelligent screenplays. For television it was a big-budget production, and it shows. And Timeless does a solid job with these sets, providing good packaging and very good picture quality.

This season has a lot of highlights, but there were also a lot of bumps along the road in the 4th season. Early in the season Roberta Shore wanted to leave the show, and so her character Betsy Garth suddenly got married and was gone. And then in the middle of the season Judge Garth, played by Lee Cobb, also left the show. Garth's first successor was a cold and hard character named Morgan Starr, who was well played by veteran actor John Dehner, but the Starr character just didn't seem right for the show and was gone by the end of the season. Finally, there were a large number of grim stories this season. Some of these are well done, but the mood shifts down a bit from the more upbeat first three seasons. A lot of these changes came about because one of the founding producers of the show, Frank Price, was promoted to the executive suites and turned over producing duties on The Virginian to Norman Macdonnell, who had previously produced Gunsmoke and other shows. Again, it's still the best Western on TV, but it's sometimes a rocky road compared to the first three seasons.
