John 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 a modified 1892 Winchester rifle which he wore on his belt and fondly called his "Mare's Lady." Randall's catch phrase "Let's go" launched him into unforgettable classic Western adventures. Steve McQueen stars in the classic hit TV series. Extras include documentary featurettes 3 colorized episodes photo galleries bios and more.System Requirements:TRT: 968 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS Rating: NR UPC: 787364766499

Other than the, mostly, surprisingly good episodes the xtras are kind enough (entertaining) to reveal quick blunders that Steve suffered while working on WANTED - SEASON 1. Two involve Steve "Josh Randall" McQueen's sawed off Winchester '92 rifle. On one occasion he fumbles to 'holster' his rifle; and on another occasion "Randall" attempts to twirl his rifle from behind an opening door where Steve can be seen trying not to wince as his fingers are pinched. The actors around him rather impressively do not react to this 'not too cool' looking rifle mishap.
This was a great buy (cheap, $8.50) with Warren Oates making a convincing bad guy appearance; and for someone like me I enjoyed seeing B-movie actress Gloria Talbot (from underrated sci-fi, horror flick I Married A Monster from Outer Space that same year...1958) making a nice "cowgirl" appearance looking (again could be me) quite fetching in her blue jeans while riding her horse rather well. I also got to enjoy a 'cat fight' (I know, me) that "Randall" does not over react to but breaks up appropriately; maybe somewhat impressed by the girl's (Talbot's) fiery nature.
But, don't misunderstand. WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE- SEASON 1 has a tough, gritty tone-style that is certainly economically efficient and 'rarely' predictable. Occasional humor is intentional: Everybody can go for "...a bottle of smiles..." some time.
All compliments aside, even with the inexpensive price, I doubt I will purchase all 3 seasons.
Other xtras feature is bio of McQueen that is all "reading" material but the Life In The Fast Lane documentary is about an hour long and can be watched at/in, approximately, 10 minute, 6 part segments shown at the end of each disc.
I also did not know 4 Star Productions (who put WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE together as well as a show called Trackdown with Robert Culp...see Bonus material) was founded by actors turned director/producers Dick Powell and Ida Lupino.
Interesting tidbit to me.
Finally, I was surprised to realize I like WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE (SEASON 1) better than Have Gun/Will Travel.
Never thought I would own Steve McQueen's tv show (SEASON 1) before any of Richard Boone's (more popular?) "Palladin" western saga.
So for McQueen fans and western collectors this collection is a must have. Now where the heck is season 2?
