With that said, I do recommend this collection. It offers a variety of approaches, from the grim "Tate" (written by "Dirty Harry" creator Harry Julian Fink) to the charming situation comedy of a "Death Valley Days" episode (written by series creaor Ruth C. Woodman). By checking through the Internet Movie Database, I found that many of the writers and directors had long lists of film credits, so this collection is somewhat like a compilation of short "B" western features.
Something else I gleaned from the IMDB...many of these shows are much-beloved, yet have been unavailable in syndication or on pre-recorded tape for many years, so the collection is a valuable introduction to shows that are rare at present. The purchase of this boxed-set is a vote in favor of the re-release of more of these classic programs.
Contents: one half-hour episode each, of:
The Lone Ranger, Bat Masterson, The Cisco Kid, The Roy Rogers Show, Death Valley Days, Sky King, Tate, Sgt. Preston of the Yukon, Judge Roy Bean, Fury, The Adventures of Jim Bowie, and Annie Oakley.
