4.0 out of 5 stars The Range Rider 7 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
Back to our youth with early television cowboys.

The Range Rider was the best of the Flying 'A' productions. Plenty of action with 2 of the best stars Jock Mahoney & Dick West.

Very enjoyable & very good quality

5.0 out of 5 stars Mahony and Jones. Yahoo! 15 April 2009
By R. H. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It took me a long time to decide to buy this offering of the Range Rider from Alpha Video. I have not had a lot of luck with past purchases. The transfers of some of the classic cowboy movies have been less than satisfying. But, in this case, my hat is off to Alpha. The prints are great. They look better than they did when I watched the Range Rider faithfully, through a snow-laden, vertically and horizontally challenged, nightmareish round hole we called a television.

Jack, Jock Mahony was more athletic and more at home in the saddle than any of the cowboy stars of that era. His sidekick, Dick Jones, equaled Mahony's prowess and added the comic relief, as well. I don't think I can count on one hand the number of times they used the left stirrup to mount their horses, Rawhide and Lucky. Back mounts, standing mounts, running mounts were the norm.

I never realized what a strong sense of morality and personal responsibility to do the right thing was woven into every story. When you're a kid it's the fighting, shooting and riding that count - and there's a lot of action in these episodes.

Here's hoping Alpha Video might make available the rest of the Range Rider series.

It's good to see my heroes ride again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great early 50's serial western 31 Jan 2008
By Richard Plueger - Published on Amazon.com
The Range Rider was a western series in half hour format, during the years of 1951 - 1953. There where 79 episodes, and you get 20 of them in this five DVD pack. I wish I had all of them. The picture and the sound is very good. The Range Rider's character is played by Jock Mahoney, and his side kick, Dick West, is played by Dick Jones. Both are excellent horsemen. The show was taped on Gene Autry's ranch. I highly recommend this DVD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saturday afternoon cowboy hero 26 July 2009
By J. Carey - Published on Amazon.com

I was a kid with our first TV when I became a fan of The Range Rider. Jock Mahoney (Sally Fields stepdad) is the perfect 50's cowboy. He can ride and shoot and save the town and all in less than 30 minutes. He and his trusty companion Dick West never swear or drink or break the law, its just like I remembered and I'm loving it. Whoever put these together on DVD did a great job. If you remember this show as fondly as I do I know you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the TV cowboys 23 Oct 2010
By GranTorino76 - Published on Amazon.com
The Range Rider was a great show back in the day and it's still extremely entertaining today. After recently watching some of these episodes I have become a big fan. Why? Well Jack, (the range rider) is a true hero but the show sometimes gives us signs his weaknesses and human frailities. He's not perfect but he tries. He's got a great sense of humor and he's easy to like. Whats really cool is how athletic he was. Many times the camera shows the Range Rider jumping to roof tops and leaping fences without cutaways. These antics will earn your respect real quick!
There is a sense of real life at it's best that appeals to the viewer as the duo of Jack and Dick root out bad guys in a manner that seems it really could have happened.

Some may draw a similarity of the almost father/sun relationship Jack has with Dick on the show with Batman, but remember, this came out several years before Batman was even started.

If you like action heroics and good feeling endings, give Range Rider a try.
