Having screened all 217 episodes for my book ("Rawhide: A History of Television's Longest Cattle Drive" available on Amazon), I can assure fans that the series was still going strong by Season 4. All characters were being given more to do, and there were numerous landmark episodes: Rio Salado, The Long Shakedown, The Inside Man, Reunion...and more! Just wish CBS would release entire seasons in one package.RAWHIDE A HISTORY OF TELEVISION'S LONGEST CATTLE DRIVE

There was a time when westerns were a staple of the small screen. Each week a different tale of the old west unfolded before a number of viewers that has seemed to dwindle of late. Be it a secret service agent for President Grant or a riverboat gambler, the variety of westerns on TV was great and helped jump start the careers of many famous movie stars. Perhaps the most notable example of this was Clint Eastwood who began his career on RAWHIDE.

Previous seasons have come out on DVD in the past and they've just added the first volume of season 4. Having not seen the earlier ones, I can only tell you that this one comes off as the perfect example of the early TV western. The stories are simple yet deep at the same time. The acting isn't nearly as bad as some comedies seen on TV right now and the ideas presented are well thought out and valuable for a younger viewing audience while remaining entertaining for adults as well.

The idea behind the series was the cowpoke, the drover who rounded up cattle and delivered them to market. Along the way they ran into problems on the trail, made problems of their own at saloons along the way and became an American icon of what a real man was all about.

Eric Fleming starred as Gil Favor, the trail boss that brought together this rag tag group of cowpokes to run the herd. A fair man and a fair boss, he kept them out of trouble while keeping the cows rounded up. His right hand man, his trail boss, was Rowdy Yates (Clint Eastwood), a young man who enjoys the life he leads and helps keep the men in line. At the same time he isn't averse to joining in on the fun when they hit town though. Rounding out the three main characters of the series was Paul Brinegar as Wishbone, the cook of the outfit.

Today (Mar 21) it was announced that after a wait of 30 months (Dec 2008), Rawhide ... Season 4 Vol 1 will be finally released and Season 4 Vol 2 will likely be out at the end of 2011. (tvshowsonDVD.com says "We hear that the rest of the thirty-episode season should make it out onto DVD near the end of this year, although CBS/Paramount hasn't formally announced it yet. Still, it's good to know that it's already on their radar!")
Wow, this is good news, but wish they would speed up the releases so we can have all 8 seasons. Better late than never I guess.
June 10 update. Paramount has done a splendid job on this....keep the releases coming!

I want to thank Paramount for reviving the remaining seasons of Rawhide. I like the added extras regarding episode previews that began with this packaging. It would be nice to see this for as many episodes as possible in future releases. Too bad we can't get Clint to have introductions to each episode. This was done well with The Wild Wild West Season 1 package. Paramount, please release the remaining 4 seasons in a timely fashion; Rawhide fans will be very grateful to have the entire series released. I also feel full season releases for the remaining 4 seasons would be a good strategy. I know Rawhide fans would agree!

This is great news that season four is finally becoming available. Certainly hope this means all eight seasons will be released! Very strange delay between seasons three and four but if they are finally releasing this one, we might take that as a vote of confidence that all episodes need to be marketed. May they all follow in a more timely fashion :-) Keep 'em rollin' guys.

Changes in directors, producers, film-stock, camera-lenses and story writers turned a great series into a declining and mediocre one. This season saw a move out of the studio as often as possible, perhaps to take advantage of panchromatic film (sensitive to the full-color spectrum) as opposed to the previous ortho-chromatic film (sensitive only to red light). The first few episodes clearly show that the production crew was having difficulty with the contrast and lighting for the new film, especially outdoors. In addition, whether caused by digital transfer, or a change in the "normal" camera focal-length, most of the shots are too tight, and the wide-open feeling of the free range has now compressed into tight shots of almost everything. Oddly, when shots return to the studio a wider-angel lens is often used, serving to remind one of what is wrong with the new series.

However, one can adapt to these types of changes and about midway through the CD's the strange contrast effects begin to diminish. What cannot be assimilated is the increasingly evident lack of creativity in the story plots. More and more, the "Hollywood" effect begins to creep in; a subtle infusion of strange plots like "The Twenty Five Santa-Clauses, " with its incredulous beginning of Santa Claus popping up in the middle of nowhere with a plot equally unbelievable. Similar stories, like British Royalty seeking the thrill of the American West in a cattle-drive, or MISS BARBARA STANWICK'S rendition of a nearly-insane women's liberation psychopath, begin to show the values-changing content being inserted into a show that had a simple theme, uncluttered by modernism. There are a few good episodes, but they only rise to OK compared to the previous three seasons. I don't believe I will purchase any additional series, unless I can discern a return to the previous quality in reviews of them here on Amazon.
