5.0 out of 5 stars The essential "Rawhide" companion 28 April 2011
Format:Paperback
What a superb book. At last Rawhide fans can obtain a great compilation of Rawhide facts. Mr. Greenland has provided a wealth of information and surely this must have been a difficult task as the series commenced over 50 years ago and very few of the crew are still with us. The foreward by Charles Gray was put together by Mr.Greenland from correspondence engaged with the actor. This was due to the fact that sadly Gray passed away before he could write it. There is an interesting interview with frequent guest star Gregory Walcott which reveals a big surprise. I would like to have seen Eastwood himself contribute but my guess is he would be too busy. The only other possibility I could think of would have been actor John Erwin ( semi regular Teddy ). I particularly liked Mr. Greenland's impartiality with Eric Fleming. Several Eastwood bios have gone out of their way to picture him as some sort of ogre and a poor actor. Greenland acknowledges that Fleming had a difficult reputation but he also points out that he was a much better actor than Fleming himself thought. Charles Gray is quoted as saying " Eric did a hell of a job as Gil Favor". Greenland also points out how popular Gil Favor was and how the show struggled without him. This book has been researched thoroughly and I cannot praise Greenland enough. I feel on his episode guide he was probably struggling as this is where the few errors occur, now, this is not a criticism as the author sat through all 217 episodes, sadly at this time only the first 3 seasons were available on release, therefore the author must have viewed the next 5 seasons from edited tv showings. We all know how mutilated these versions can be. Luckily I have all the seasons unedited. Most of these errors the author may be able to correct in a possible reprint. E. Read more ›

By J. Lovins TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
BearManor Media presents "RAWHIDE: A HISTORY OF TELEVISION'S LONGEST CATTLE DRIVE" (Paperback), by David R. Greenland (Author), Charles Gray (Foreword) --- From its premiere episode on January 9th,1959-to the last and final episode of the series on January 4th,1966,ran on the CBS network for eight seasons and from there producing an astounding 217 episodes,all filmed and broadcast in black and white.

CBS commissioned Dimitri Tiomkin to compose show's theme song, with lyrics by Ned Washington, the vocal by Frankie Laine. All Three men were familiar with Western stylings, Tiomkin having been responsible for scoring "Duel in the Sun", "Red River" and "High Noon".

"Rawhide" was one of the outstanding westerns to ever grace the tube from the Golden Age of the Television Genre. The year 1959,the peak year for the genre,the networks were producing over 23 shows, mostly Westerns and most of them were in the top ten of the Nielsen ratings, despite what the critics said about this series and whatever else -- the show stood shoulder to shoulder behind some of the best Westerns of their day.

During its premiere episode,it reached the top 20 in the Nielsen ratings,where CBS guaranteed the family audience it needed,but still it was simply an "adult" TV Western aimed at mature audiences. During its run it rosed steadily in popularity until toward the end of the series' run,it was one of America's top ten shows. It was destined to become the fourth longest-running TV western,beaten only by nine years of "The Virginian",fourteen years of "Bonanza",and twenty years of "Gunsmoke".

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for fans of Rawhide 3 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for fans of the TV series Rawhide. The book is printed on request, so takes a few days to reach you. Well worth the wait. The photographs and the text are informative. The book is split into sections. Part one contains short biogrpahies of Clint Eastwood and Eric Fleming, also details on the series. Part two covers information about all "The Incidents" in chronological order. It gives details of script writers, directors, guest cast members and a brief outline of the story. There is a intersting interview with Gregory Walcott, a regular guest star, and a clear index. A book to compliment the new DVD collection of the Rawhide seasons. I certainly recommend this book by David R Greenland.
