WAGON TRAIN - The Complete Fourth Season! 10 DVD Set. Continuing in their great tradition of classic TV westerns, NBC Universal and Timeless Media Group bring you the complete, uncut fourth season of Wagon Train, one of the most enduring and sought after westerns of all time. Direct from the vaults at Universal, these 38 episodes have been re-mastered and presented on 10 dual layer DVDs. Inspired by the classic western film Wagonmaster, directed by John Ford (The Searchers, Stagecoach), Wagon Train debuted on Wednesday, September 18, 1957 on the NBC Television Network. The ensemble acting, wonderful scripts and great western scenery soon made Wagon Train a fixture in American homes on Wednesday nights, as millions of Americans of all ages tuned in to NBC for great family entertainment.
Ward Bond, who starred in Wagonmaster, recreated his role from the film as Major Seth Adams. He was joined by costars Robert Horton as Head Scout Flint McCullough, Frank McGrath as the cook Charlie Wooster, and Terry Wilson as Assistant Wagonmaster Bill Hawks, who all brought their skills as horsemen as well as wonderful actors to the show, giving Wagon Train a special, western flavor.
The fourth season of Wagon Train brought real life tragedy to the travelers heading west. The great Ward Bond, succumbed to illness and passed away part-way through the season. Bond was reunited with his old friends John Ford and the great John Wayne for one last episode together (The Colter Craven Story). The determined travelers and their guides continued on their way with a new leader, Christopher Hale, played by John McIntire, and a new guide Denny Miller, who joined Wooster and Bill Hawks as they escorted their passengers on their perilous journey to California.

It is with a mixture of joy and sadness I anticipate season four of this wonderful western series. Sadly Ward Bond passed away during this season and he is replaced by John Mcintire. Mcintire was a versatile good actor but for me Ward Bond held a special magic and the series was never the same, and when Robert Horton departed a couple of years later the series lost so much of it's great characterisation. I always stayed loyal to the series throughout it's run but even several years later when it aired I still missed Bond's presence. His interplay with Horton was a joy and no one could match his jousts with Frank Mcgrath and Terry Wilson ( they were real life friends who Bond insisted had roles in Wagon Train ). For me Chris Hale was rather a lifeless character in comparison to Major Seth Adams. Bond's last episode to air is the poignant Beth Pearson Story where he meets his old true love again. You have to imagine that at the end he changed his mind and returned to her instead of the Wagon Train. I will not be purchasing any sets after this season as for me the series rolls to it's end here.I admit an interest in seeing once again the episode where Mcintire becomes wagonmaster, as said he does a good job and no doubt happily many fans will still enjoy the series, it's just not for me after Bond's death. I didn't really enjoy many of the color episodes for that reason.Whichever way you look at it Wagon Train was a landmark series and I really look forward to this release.

I was very excited to get season 4 a couple of weeks ago and have been enjoying watching the episodes. I have never had any problem with any of the other seasons's episodes, but there are several problems with this set. Disk 1 and 2 had a little bit of pixing but mostly playable, but on disk 4 the Roger Bigelow story hardly plays at all. It is all pixied out in the beginning and it freezes and then it moves on to the next chapter, pixies out again and moves to the next chapter etc.. So the whole episode took about 5 minutes and then they were playing the credits which worked fine. The next 2 episodes on that disk are messed up as well. I'm not sure what I want to do about it, but I don't want to return it and get another set that could be damaged as well maybe in different spots. Maybe I'll keep this set and buy another set anyway so I can watch the episodes that are bad on this set. I still have 3 disks yet to watch, so I'll make a decision after that. But I am really enjoying it in spite of the problems. I prefered Ward Bond, but I don't mind John McIntire and as always I love Terry Wilson and Frank McGrath, they work so well together.

John Ford directed episode 9, "The Colter Craven Story" and I bought this set...my last set in the series...because of that. I say it's my last set because this is Ward Bond's last season before passing away and the show wasn't the same after he was gone. Not only is the scene in episode 9 with John Wayne legendary, but the episode contains generous amounts of footage Ford used from his 1950 movie, "Wagon Master" which also starred Ward Bond as a Mormon elder heading a wagon train west. Of course, "Wagon Master" was the inspiration for the TV show "Wagon Train." It is interesting to see how many of the movie's scenes were used and how Ford was able to 'cut' into them with interaction between Major Adams, Bill and Charlie Wooster.
I still recall the sad morning my fifth grade class in 1960 learned that Ward Bond had died. The sadness was compounded by the news that country singer Johnny Horton had died within hours of Bond's passing. For a ten-year-old, that news was hard to take after learning the truth about Santa Claus.

For anyone who was concerned when Amazon had a too low episode count in the title for this DVD set, this set does indeed have all the 38 episodes that were originally broadcast as season 4.

Wagon Train is my all time favorite TV series, with Flint McCullough as my favorite character. That means I plan to collect all the sets for seasons 1 - 5, the years Robert Horton appeared as Flint.

Season 4 was an unusual year, because the management, actors, and crew had to adapt quickly following the unexpected death of Ward Bond. They did a good job of continuing to produce new episodes on time for each weekly program, but with some mistakes.

Remembering that I am a Flint fan, my favorite serious episode of this season is The River Crossing.
My favorite lighter mood episode of the season is Don Alvarado Flint as Zorro. Actual plot is serious.)
Other Flint stories of this season that I especially like are Odyssey of Flint McCullough, Allison Justis, and Earl Packer.
(At film festivals, Robert Horton always has high praise for Ernest Borgnine, the guest star in Earl Packer.)

Cathy Eckhart is a fine episode with Major Adams as the main regular.
Ah Chong (with Arnold Stang as a Chinese cook) and Nellie Jefferson are amusing episodes featuring Charlie Wooster.
Path of the Serpent is a good episode with Bill Hawks as the main regular.
Wagons Ho! with all the regulars and Mickey Rooney respising his role as a Greenhorn is an enjoyable start to the season.

Packaging, defects, etc. - The discs come inside a cardboard book inside a tin box, very much the same as the sets for seasons 2 and 3. The discs come out of the cardboard book fairly easily, but I've decided to store the set I will use regularly in Tyvek sleeves.
