Always thought William Tell had a more dangerous edge to it than say, Robin Hood. High mountain villages, narrow alpine passes, highly strung crossbows - you get the drift.
Watching the series again 50 years later I'm amazed how well the story lines gel. And of course Jennifer Jayne looks just as dishy as she did to a pre-pubescent boy all those years ago.
Shame only 39 episodes were produced. Highly recommended viewing for those with an adventurous streak.
A box set to take you back - well worth it, thanks Amazon
Well worth the purchase price.
Ps Spot how they managed to shoot the bolt through the apple in the opening seqences
