Tales of Wells Fargo starring Dale Robertson! 6 DVD Set! The 1950's ushered in the Golden Era of the TV Western, one of the most popular genres ever produced for the small screen. Every network had numerous westerns on the air, ranging from children's Saturday afternoon fare to adult prime time dramas. At one time over 32 hours of western entertainment were available on the three networks! One of the most memorable of all, Tales of Wells Fargo, premiered on NBC Television in 1956, instantly rising to #3 in the ratings in its first season. When people think of Wells Fargo, images of rearing horses and blazing guns come to mind, and of course, the one and only Dale Robertson as Agent Jim Hardie, troubleshooter for the Wells Fargo stage coach line. Not a typical heartthrob, Robertson managed to portray a rough and tough lawman and a gentle and sympathetic soul at the same time, winning over both male and female viewers with each exciting half-hour episode. The Wells Fargo Stage Line played a heroic role in the history of the West, ferrying passengers and cargo from Missouri to California over a harsh and sometimes hostile land. In Tales of Wells Fargo, Agent Hardie faced weekly tests of will and character, as he protected the stage coaches from outlaws, bandits and Indian raiders, seeing them safely through their journey. Eacn week, a great line-up of guest stars joined Robertson on the road west, including some of the best actors in Hollywood. The list includes Chuck Connors (The Thin Rope), Lee Van Cleef (Alder Gulch), Michael Landon (Sam Bass), Denver Pyle (Renegade Raiders), Jack Elam (The Hijackers) and one of Steve McQueen's first appearances on network TV (Bill Longley). In the tradition of its best selling releases of Wagon Train and Laredo, TMG and NBC Universal are proud to present the best of the first five seasons of Tales of Wells Fargo, 46 episodes of the very best in classic television westerns. So saddle up and hit the trail!

Tales of Wells Fargo is an American Western television series that ran from March 18, 1957 to June 2, 1962 on NBC --- Set in the mid-1800s, the series starred Dale Robertson as special agent Jim Hardie, noted at the time as "the left-handed gun". The concept of the Wells Fargo series, a company troubleshooter in the American West --- Produced by Revue Productions, the series aired in a half-hour format until its final season when it expanded to an hour --- For its first two years, the show was also in the top ten Nielsen Ratings. During the 1957-58 season, it was ranked No. 3. --- Check out 46 Classic Episodes on 6 DVD Discs with some of the best character actors in the business.

Dale Robertson, the actor who made his name in television Westerns in the 1950s and '60s, was born on July 14, 1923, in Harrah, Oklahoma. After serving in a tank crew and in the combat engineers in North Africa and Europe during World War II, the twice-wounded Robertson started his acting career while still on active duty in the U.S. Army. While stationed at San Luis Obispo, California, had a photograph taken for his mother. A copy of the photo displayed in the photo shop window attracted movie scouts, and the six foot tall, 180-lb. Roberson soon was on his way to Hollywood. Will Rogers Jr., whose father is the most famous son of Oklahoma, told him to avoid formal training and keep his own persona

"Don't ever take a dramatic lesson," Rogers told him. "They will try to put your voice in a dinner jacket, and people like their hominy and grits in everyday clothes." Robertson took his advice and avoided acting classes.

Robertson was typecast in Western movies and TV shows when the genre was still America's favorite.

Many of the series that we grew up with as a child have an appeal to see again as an adult. Unfortunately some memories prove to be better than actually seeing the show again. I am pleased to say that this is not the case with Tales of Wells Fargo. Dales acting and the stories tend to be as good as we recall them. Timeless Media group has done a good job of restoring this classic western. I highly recommend it.

Normally I wait for a few reviews before I buy, but could not wait so I bought this set (I'm not sure the store should have had them out yet). Great prints this time, as good as Restless Gun. Stories are typical westerns and not as mature as Restless Gun. The quality of prints making these very enjoyable to watch. I think one of the best of this age out there. A release this old unfortunately has not the demand to put out a season by season. Being this is about a fourth of the shows a complete series would be about $240. I am a fan of these westerns of the 50's and 60's. The "best of" works great for me as long as there is a least 40 shows. But I would have liked to have all of the Restless Gun shows. Riverboat, 6 would have been enough. I'm glad for these releases from Timeless. Beware of any early color, as Laramie is only so-so.

The first 4 years of imaginative and action-packed B&W episodes were much better. This final color season (expanded from 30 to 60 minutes) was a disappointment. The combination of a recurring supporting cast (who frequently over-acted), the tiring backdrop of Jim Hardy's ranch & nearby town, and a drawn-out (sometimes silly) story-line resulted in a boring TV experience. I devoured the B&W boxed set of earlier episodes, but couldn't get past the first two discs here. Even Dale Robertson (whom I love) couldn't rescue the series. Sorry, my expectations were much higher.
