Format: DVD
For every successful tv western series created in the 1960s, there were several others that failed. Some deservedly so, others not so: Overland Trail, which ran for 17 episodes in 1960, was one of the latter, its demise undoubtedly due to strong opposition (Maverick and Disney) on the competitive channels.

Overland Trail starred one-time forties noir hardman William Bendix (then fresh from his lengthy "Life of Riley" sojourn) as Fred Kelly, the crusty superintendent of the Overland Stage Company, often conning his young assistant Frank "Flip" Flippen, played by Doug McClure in his first major role. The pair complimented themselves well and the series possessed, for the most part, tongue-in-cheek humour, although the final episodes took on more dramatic scenarios. The tales were varied, from Indian attacks to Mexican diplomats, gold mining to an attempted Presidential assassination, with convincing action scenes mainly directed by Hollywood veterans Tay Garnett and William Whitney. Plus there was also a well assembled lineup of guest stars that included Claude Akins, Mercedes McCambridge, Ron Randell, Gerald Mohr, Sean McClory and Harry Guardino.

Thanks to Timeless Video this otherwise forgotten series has resurfaced - a highly entertaining series that deserved to remain on screen for a far longer period.

I was not familiar with this series, but having enjoyed other TV westerns from Time Media, I thought it would be worth viewing. As other reviewers have already commented, this is one of the better western series which deserved far greater success. My criticism is with the media. Three of the discs in the set suffered from freezing and picture blocking, spoiling my enjoyment of three episodes (one on each of the three affected discs). The faults were verified by playing the discs on three different players (two dedicated DVD players and one Blu-ray player). A replacement set suffered from exactly the same problem at the same points in the program, so the problem appears to be with the disc authoring. Shame, but the set is still worth having for the remaining episodes.

Presented by NBCUniversal and distributed by Timeless Media Group, this is a series I seem to have missed! Having now seen the 17 classic episodes on 4 DVDs, am glad to have this complete series in my collection. WILLIAM BENDIX and DOUG McCLURE are good together as they struggle to keep their Overland Stage line safe as they move West from Missouri, across the Rockies and on to California. A very enjoyable series with an impressive guest cast list.
