About the Actor

Jock Mahoney, a legend in Hollywood and a Marine fighter pilot in WW II, found work as a stuntman after the war, doubling for Errol Flynn, John Wayne and Gregory Peck before being signed by Gene Autry for the lead in The Range Rider, Autry's 1951 TV series. He became film's oldest Tarzan, playing the Ape-man in two films for producer Sy Weintraub, and performing all of his own stunts at the age of 44!

Product Description

The great Jock Mahoney plays Yancy Derringer in this thrilling adventure series with a backdrop of New Orleans and the Mississippi River in the years following the Civil War.

The owner of a riverboat named the Sultana and a family plantation, The Waverly, Derringer is a Southern aristocrat seemingly devoted to gambling, but in reality he is a secret agent authorized to help maintain law and order and justice in the city by any means that may become necessary. His constant companion is Pahoo-Ka-Ta-Wah, X Brands, a fierce Pawnee Indian who communicates with Yancy only by hand gestures, and appears ready at a moment's notice to use the shotgun that he always carries. Yancy’s weapons of choice are a Sharp’s four-barrel Derringer carried in his hat, another in his vest and a rapier in his cane. As Yancy and Pahoo make their way through the gambling casinos, riverboats and picturesque streets of New Orleans, they cross paths with rogues, aristocrats, sinners and saints, always ready to thwart crime and help the helpless!

The beautiful Madame Francine, Frances Bergen, is the proprietor of the Sazarac, a famous New Orleans private gambling house and is Yancy’s love interest in the series.

Guest stars include Charles Bronson, Claude Akins, Lisa Lu, Lee Van Cleef, John Vivyan, Beverly Garland, Julie Adams, Robert McCord, Louise Fletcher, Woody Chambliss and Margaret Field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adventure at its Best! August 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
When a Birmingham, Alabama TV station began showing Yancy Derringer weekday afternoons in 1961, it was almost enough to cause this young man to fail the fifth grade due to truancy. I was first introduced to the show courtesy of a case of German Measles. While bored one afternoon waiting for the red spots to go away, I turned on the TV set and became mesmerized by Yancy and his sidekick, Pahoo.
I was awestruck by the clever concealment of Yancy's weapon of choice...the derringer. There was one up his fancy white sleeve, one up his white britches leg and who would have thought of hiding one in his white pillbox crown gambler's hat. The latter was immensely valuable since every western hero could count on being surprised at least once from behind and knocked senseless by the villain's six-gun. Not Yancy, the derringer always "cushioned" the blow from above. At least that made sense when I was 11.
And that Pahoo! Took no prisoners. He had this long knife in a scabbard over his shoulder. In a fraction of a second, he could send it down range and have it buried to the hilt before nemesis Jack Elam could focus with his good eye. And if, by chance, 15 inches of steel buried in your chest wasn't enough, Pahoo always kept the sawed-off shotgun under his serape-looking-thing and could pump out more ground meat than McDonald's .
I always tried to mimic the hand signals Pahoo would use, since he never talked. Yancy could carry on a conversation with Pahoo and Pahoo would always respond with one or two hand signals. Needless to say, conversations were short, as were the gunfights. After all, they were derringers , you know.
There were favorite episodes, like the one where some outlaw dared to dress like Yancy and rob banks. He had this Pahoo lookalike too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good "Public Domain" Release October 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I had been looking forward to Yancy Derringer for a long time to add to my collection of 1950s TV Westerns on DVD. When this set was first announced I was quite happy to pre-order it. Now that I have it in hand to watch, I am of mixed emotions.

The quality of the episodes vary. These are not the same quality as Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Rawhide releases -- remixed for DVD. The video quality varies from episodes to episode. Some are quite clear but others look like the versions you might see syndicated on local TV, with scratches, blank spots, etc.

The audio quality is acceptable but only just.

There are no opening credits -- only a night scene with Yancy walking down a New Orleans street with the series title. The well-remembered "Yancy Derringer" theme is missing -- replaced by a nondescript instrumental which sounds much like the theme for "The Rifleman." I believe Timeless Media Group opted to produce this series on the cheap -- and did not pay royalties for the original TV score. That makes the viewing of these episodes less than ideal. I am reminded of those Public Domain episodes of Bonanza which have the famous music stripped out of the programming and replaced by bland, "cheap" sounding Western-ish background music.

The end credits appear to be those of the original broadcast version -- including a credit for the "Yancy Derringer" theme which Timeless Media has stripped from the programming.

I haven't watched all 34 episodes yet, but those I have seen hold up well considering their half-century age. Yancy Derringer was a 30-minute, adult Western: one among many broadcast during the late 50s. What made it unusual was the setting: New Orleans in the years right after the Civil War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series & Note- "Frances Bergen" May 9, 2012
First off letting the word out for those who don't know, Frances Bergen was Edgar Bergen's wife and the mother of Candace. As far as I have ever seen or know this is the only tv she ever did. Yancy Derringer is an excellent series, I watched it as a kid and although I already have the entire series as a bootleg set I will be purchasing this Box set as well.

YANCY DERRINGER AND THE WOLF WHO STANDS IN WATER BLASTS WITH SAM PECKINPAH SHOTGUN IMPACT ON DVD.
Jock Mahoney leaves the Range Rider far behind and strides in ruffles and brocades
with his sawed-off shotgun weilding Pawnee guard standing their ground in post Civil War New Orleans.

I never thought I'd see the TV series Yancy Derringer, with Jock and X Brands on DVD on prints
looking as spiffy as Yancy in his ruffled shirts and brocades.

I never thought every episode with Pahoo Ka Ta Wah (Pawnee for Wolf Who Stands In Water)
firing his double-barreled shotgun and blowing bodies,
Sam Peckinpah style,
up off the floor and slamming into walls or hurtling over tables released in a Complete Series set,
chronologically in order on disc, with all the unusual amount of continuity of the series intact.

And yes I know there are some who believe Pahoo's name is with a "Ke" rather than a "Ka",
and may be right,
but almost every source written about the character has it the other way.

Every episode from the series is in this set, UNCUT, and with the exception of
The Gun That Murdered Lincoln in the sharpest prints I have ever seen on this
series.
[...]

The themesong with the lyrics aren't on these prints. It's the only downside, and I
write about this at length in the longer interview. "They say that Yancy Derringer
had ruffles at his wrists, brocades and silver buckles, and iron in his fists."

You can read the complete review for Yancy and Pahoo on COMICS BULLETIN,
about here, and even see photos of both in action, and even at least
one photo of Jock as the Range Rider.

Look forward to your reactions.

Hopefully visitors there who have never heard of the series will come here
or to Timeless and check it out, and maybe help sell the DVD set!
