Editorial Reviews

Wagon Train - The Complete First Season starring Ward Bond and Robert Horton! 10 DVD Set! For the first time, NBC Universal and TMG bring you the complete, uncut first season of Wagon Train, one of America's most enduring and sought after TV westerns of all time. Direct from the NBC vaults, these 39 episodes have been re-mastered and presented on 10 dual layer DVDs in this special collector's edition. 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 into 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 Wagon Master Bill Hawks, who all brought their skills as horsemen as well as wonderful actors to the show, giving Wagon Train a special, western flavor. Each well crafted episode focused on a personal story of courage and perseverance of not just the main cast, but of the westward-bound emigrants as they made the perilous journey by Conestoga wagon from the banks of the Mississippi to California's Pacific shores, in the face of great odds. Their heart-warming (and sometimes heartbreaking) sagas tell the tale of how the American West was truly won, by hard-working and determined people driven by the promise of freedom and prosperity in the new land, and by those who saw them through the harshest of landscapes to the promised land that beckoned them. Joining the cast each week were some of Hollywood's brightest stars in guest roles, including Ernest Borgnine (The Willy Moran Story), Sterling Hayden (The Les Rand Story), Agnes Moorehead (The Mary Halstead Story), Keenan Wynn (The Luke O'Malley Story), June Lockhart (The Sarah Drummond Story), Debra Paget and Nick Adams (The Marie Dupree Story), and many, many more. This 10 DVD collector's edition of Wagon Train - The Complete First Season, including all 39 great episodes, is sure to please both fans of the original broadcast, and newcomers who are seeing it for the first time. As Major Adams says as he leads his charges westward and they roll their Conestoga wagons out onto the prairie, WAGONS, HO!

This has been a glorious month for classic TV westerns fans. First comes the announcement that season one (in two sets) of NBC's "The Virginian" will be released by Timeless Media in the spring of 2010. Then CBS/Paramount confirms that season four, set one of CBS' "Have Gun Will Travel" is set for retail release next spring. Finally, saints be praised, season one (all 39 episodes) of "Wagon Train" hit the streets 12/15 to starving sodbuster viewers like me. I got mine recently in the mail (certified set #09811, no less) and I am thrilled with the picture and audio quality (a solid "8"). Yes it is pricey, but, trust me, it is worth the cost to see Major Adams and company again. The set comes in a collectable tin and holds 10 discs in a handsome heavy-duty, fan-type jacket. The jacket contains pictures of the primary characters and a rundown of each episode. All of my top six all-time TV westerns ("Gunsmoke," "HGWT," "The Virginian," "Wagon Train," "Bonanza," and "Cheyenne") have now been (or will soon be) at least partially released on retail. So, I guess I can now go to "Cowboy Heaven." (However, it is doubtful if Warners will EVER release more than season one of the "Big Fellas" program. Which leaves little hope for "The Lawman," "Maverick," "Bronco," "Colt 45," or "Sugarfoot.") Thank you for taking the time to read my review. What follows is the breakdown of guest stars (a "Who's Who" of 50's luminaries) to be found in season one of "WT." "WAGON'S HO............Read more ›

This is going to be an "uncut" first season of Wagon Train. The 39 episodes have be remastered and reside on 10 dual layer DVD's. The series was inspired by the western, "The Wagonmaster", which is one of those few classic films that is getting a pressed DVD release this year, so you can examine both and compare. There is some confusion about this set, for I've seen reports that it was going to be exclusive to Sam's Club, yet it shows up here for sale. This particular edition is supposed to be a limited run in a collector's tin shaped like a covered wagon, so if it is re-released, it will probably be in a plain case.

This first season began airing in September of 1957 and stars Ward Bond, recreating his role from John Ford's "The Wagonmaster" as Major Seth Adams. Also starring is Robert Horton as Head Scout Flint McCullough, Frank McGrath as the cook Charlie Wooster, and Terry Wilson as Assistant Wagon master Bill Hawks. The big picture of the series is that it takes place a few years after the Civil War and involves the forementioned characters taking a wagon train of settlers from Missouri to California.

Each episode is pretty much self-contained as it focuses on the stories of the passengers on the wagon train and is framed by the fine performances of the main cast. Guest stars in this first season include Ernest Borgnine (The Willy Moran Story), Sterling Hayden (The Les Rand Story), Agnes Moorehead (The Mary Halstead Story), Keenan Wynn (The Luke O'Malley Story), June Lockhart ( The Sarah Drummond Story), and Debra Paget and Nick Adams (The Marie Dupree Story).

It is interesting to note that when Gene Roddenberry was making his pitch to the networks for Star Trek he described it as a "Wagon Train to the Stars".

As soon as I learned that Wagon Train was available on DVD I purchased the entire Fisrt Season. I missed the series when it was on television and am so glad to have the opportunity of seeing it, now. Ward Bond is a very convincing Wagon Train Master, with all the military bearing of his army days as a major in the Civil War. He is tough, he is sometimes gruff, but clearly knows his job and makes sure others do, as well. Robert Horton as the executive officer is a quiet hero who only reports mission accomplished to his boss. Here is the honor code of the Old West at its best, as a westerner, myself, of the "quiet generation." There is adventure, intrigue, greed, all the recognizable human failings and there are champions of honor and law and order to balance things out. Truely good family stories, all with the strong pioneer spirit that helped make America great. I am thoroughly enjoying this series 50 years later. It is all story and characters with enough adventure and clean dialog to satisfy the whole family.

I was anxious to get this DVD set. However the packaging inside the Collector's tin is terrible. My set came with at least three discs scratched because of overly tight cardboard sleeve which are difficult to remove the discs from . There are no plastic trays- the discs are jammed into cardboard pages. I will now have to return the set and decide if I want to try another or get a refund. I hope the set will be re re-released by Timelesss in conventional packaging. I hate to say anything bad about this company , because they've released some great shows including a lot of old TV western . They were ill advised to release this show in this type of package .
