Editorial Reviews

"Wanted: Dead or Alive", the hit television series that launched the career of Steve McQueen ("Bullitt", "The Getaway, "The Thomas Crown Affair") in 1958 as gentleman bounty hunter Josh Randall. The character, originally introduced in an episode of the television Western Trackdown, was so popular that the production company created "Wanted: Dead or Alive" so that McQueen could reprise the role of Randall. Josh Randall was not a typical rough-hewn bounty hunter of the Old West; he was a consummate gentleman who always gave half - or even all - of his reward money to charity. He was a man of few words, and, unlike most bounty hunters, he carried neither a shotgun nor a rifle but rather an 1892 Winchester lever action pistol, which he wore on his belt and fondly called his "Mare's leg." Josh Randall's catch phrase, "Let's go," launched him into unforgettable, classic Western adventures. Steve McQueen fans - and fans of classic television - will have a chance to see the early work of such Hollywood luminaries as Steve McQueen as Josh Randall, along with James Coburn Martin Landau, Dyan Cannon and many more.* Over one hour of bonus features including seven new featurettes! * An all-star list of guest stars including Steve's MAGNIFICENT SEVEN co-star James Coburn, Mary Tyler Moore, Cloris Leachman, Richard Farnsworth and Noah Berry Jr. (The Rockford Files) * This set includes episodes directed by Richard Donner (LETHAL WEAPON and THE GOONIES) Special Features: Wanted Dead or Alive Season 3 DVD Box set includes all 26 episodes plus extras including The Art of the Replica Featurette(4:43) Mare's Leg Featurette (8:38) The Women of the Series Featurette (9:55) Reckless Featurette (8:40) The Winchester Featurette (8:16) Autry National Center Featurette (17:52) Matchmaker Featurette (7:47)

STEVE MCQUEEN...He had that something..."SPECIAL"... that can take a simple story and turn it into a..."MUST SEE"...production!! Wanted Dead or Alive is a perfect example of just how GREAT an actor he was...This program had Very Talented Writers and Wonderful Costars. But... I can only compare how you feel when MCQUEEN does his thing, to the times I saw TED WILLIAMS come to bat!! You just know that something "VERY SPECIAL" is about to happen!! I don't care what you pay for these DVD's, it's worth every penny....DON'T MISS IT!!!!

One of the most memorable and famous characters of the '50's Western genre was Steve McQueen's "Josh Randall", who spoke softly (with the Southern drawl he cultivated in his early days roaming around the South, particularly Myrtle Beach, S.C.) and carried a Big Gun, the sawed-off Winchester lever-action rifle then known as the "Mare's Laig". I remember the excitement each week eagerly waiting for each episode of this great Western.
It's release on DVD has been just too long a wait! It's great to finally have ALL of this fine show! It's just too bad there wasn't more of it, and that we'll not see the likes of it again!
One of my fondest childhood memories was the weekend I spent with my Dad, helping him to hand make my own custom-made leather belt rig from scratch for my toy "Mare's Laig" in time for use as part of a Halloween costume when the plastic original proved to be a poor replica.
With all the second- and third-rate wastage flooding the DVD market lately, it's really great to see SOMEBODY bring back such a great actor in this really great Western!

THIS IS THE BEST SEASON OUT OF THE THREE. SOME OF MY FAVORITE EPISODES ARE IN THIS LAST SEASON. THIS SEASON HAS ALOT OF COOL GUEST STARS AND THE MAIN REASON IS THAT RICHARD DONNER DIRECTS ALOT OF THE EPISODES. IT IS NOT SO MUCH GOOD AGAINST BAD, INSTEAD THE STORIES HAVE TWISTS TO THEM AND GREAT CAMERA WORK. RICHARD DONNER WOULD GO ON TO DIRECT THE LETHAL WEAPON MOVIES AND SUPERMAN.

This third complete year set of Wanted Dead or Alive is just as fantastic as the first two years. The sound and picture quality is excellent. I noticed a few differences in this third year set. There is a new video opening to the show.....he has a new hat.....he seems to wear his gun belt less, sometimes draped over his shoulder, or over the horn on his saddle.....there seems to be less violence and a little more humor. I highly recommend this DVD set.

Steven McQueen's 1st year series was quite good, but he
was rather stiff in the role. Season 3 series is excellent
and find that McQueen had found his role rather more comfortable
and his acting ability rose. This is a must get series for the
western aficionado.

I have watched all three season of this show. The first season was fantastic and the second was even better for the most part. The episodes were unique and not as simplistic as many westerns from this era were. However in season three it is as if the writers started to run out of ideas and instead of rehashing the old stuff, they went in a new direction. There are way too many "comedy" episodes. I just don't think this show worked well as a comedy and the the Josh Randall character seemed like a completely different person in these episodes. The worst one was probably Baa-Baa (he is trying to find someone's lost pet sheep) and Detour wasn't much better (trying to help someone elope with a girl). I was sad to be finishing this series because I really enjoyed it, but the mixed quality of season 3 has made the ending a little easier.
