4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage B&W western series, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 26 Men: 1957-1958 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Having enjoyed the radio exploits of the Texas Rangers, starring Joel McCrea (quite a few episodes available on Audible to download) and knowing my father's love of all series western, I ordered this, not knowing too much about it or indeed that Arizona had suffered from such lawlessness that just 26 men stood between the territory and anarchy, and did much to bring it toward statehood - so from a historical point of view, and the fact that the stories were drawn from real cases, made this a curiosity

It's a workmanlike tv western, with no frills, but is entertaining, informative and a bargain at the price

My one misgiving is the periodic male voice chorus - not content with the title song, we are also "treated" to blasts of song throughout the episodes. I'm all for authentic versions of old tv shows, but along with a similar treatment of another series - Wyatt Earp - I could happily lose the singing, apart from the title, which you can mostly tolerate for the sake of the contents inside either end of the show - so that is why I give it 4 stars, because it definitely bugs me!
